Has anyone been on Duncan Road from Halls creek to the WA, NT Border Check point recently if so how were the road conditions . I am thinking of going that way in May rather than go on the sealed highway from Halls Creek to Kununurra.

We did it 2 years ago and had a great time. We took 3 days (last day to get from Marella gorge to KNX via Halls Creek. Marella gorge is great, with camping by a billabong, with a bit of a walk to the gorge itself. Ring Nicholson station before you go, they were very helpful and permission was not a problem. We also camped by the Negri River, which was quite nice but unfortunately others before us had left the campsite in a pretty ordinary state.

We didn't do much exploring, just a quick get away and relax....as much as possible with a 9 month old. There are plenty of tracks and abandoned homesteads along the way. I cant remember how far it actualy was, but we only drove a few hours each morning, so at a guess it is about 450km. May should be a good time of yea to do it, hopefully still a bit of flow in the rivers but not enough to close the road. I think there may even be a book about the road somewhere......

Hope this helps
