Seeking any info about the road from Balladonia to Cape Le Grand NP via Condingup. In late model L/Cruiser and will have a Track Eagle off-road camper in tow that have already done Gibb River Road, Tanami and Savannah Tracks. Should this road be of any great concern?? Would value any feedback for family travelling in April. Cheers, The Foot Doctor.

Hi footdoc, you shouldn't encounter any problems as the road is generally in good condition provided there haven't been any recent rains which can cause the road to be closed by Dept. Main Roads to prevent further damage. Check with Main Roads prior to travel. Cheers.

Road is fine recent rain not withstanding. Sothern end can get a bit rough with limestone but nothing a seasoned traveller like yourself wouldnt take in their stride. Dont make the Mistake of taking parmango road but keep heading sout so you can take in Bills padock, Balbinya ruins which have been partially restored, Juranda rockhole, pine hill and then the immpressive Mt ragged which has campgrounds and dunnys. From here you head SW along Balladonia road and can either keep following it to fisheries road or take it as far as the Cape arid national park cleeared line which heads south past Mt Baring and onto Fisheries road. From here it is on to Condy and cape le grand. However to me the thomas River area which you will pass by is better then the popular cape Le grande With places such as Boolenup Lagoon TAgon Beach with its towering Tagon point in adendance and the Main thomas river beach run wich passes plasses like the tagon bay dunes, Pt jeddacorrudup and you can take an inland track near the end of the beach to the walk track to Mt Arid which overlooks the Eastern Coast archepeligo

Drove the road last week. The northern section is a bit cut up due to recent rains but is still easy(2wd). The southern section is smooth as. I checked with the friendly staff at the Balladonia roadhouse before I drove it.

Cape Le Grand has amazing coastal scenery but was very cold at night. Camped at Lucky Bay, good amenities, great scenery, but was rather crowded although the ranger said it was nothing compared to xmas.
