Went from Warburton across to Ayers Rock August '05. No worries, can maintain good speed, spectacular scenery.

Pete,
Thanks for the post. We're also travelling the road in a couple of months and like you, we are looking for as much information as possible.

Regards,

there has been many many rains the last couple of months - lake throssel has lots of water and has flowed across and along the road - give warburton a call and they should be able to help. when dry the road is suitable for anything. if you have time make the sidetracks and have a look at empress srpings and the len beadel memorial. rgds
Slow down and relax......

Just came across your Q about the GCR Ive been over it twice in the last 16 months and had no problems except the first trip i was acually working , had a convoy of Heavy Haulage trucks and a couple of Road Trains mixed in , 110 Klm west of Giles it Rained for half the night and the Trucks lost traction so we camped up for 1 and half days the got caught on the sand hill at Docker River but as for a 4x4 you will have no troubles , 2 road houses between Laverton and Yulara and the WA leg is well maintained and could have cruised at 90k no worries, even seen a couple of caravans,The Aboriginals are using normal 2 wheelers most times , when they expire they burn em.
