From the 100 list on Gibb River Road ......

"The road is mostly dirt and gravel and requires an honest to goodness 4WD (high clearance, long-range fuel tanks) even in the dry – ie, when the road is open (usually April to November)."

Very strange comment - you can drive the entire GRR in anything from a Road Train to a Mini. Maybe they mean some of the side tracks??

Cheers
Greg
I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

either that or they think that if everyone doesnt have a 4wd then they have the latest model bmw with the works,fully sik mate!!

maybe they havent actually done it themselves and are just going off people whose biggest experience on rough roads are those who deal with city roads only!! - ONLY!!LOL!!!!

I think I'm about half way through them and I figure that I'm halfway along that line they put on headstones between 'Born' and 'Died'. So I guess everything's going to plan?

That's an interesting site when I sat and read it, its amazing how many I have actually done I feel very lucky to have had the chance to do it and as I read the list it brought back some good memories of the places.

All the best

I decided to cheat bit - I checked out No 100 and I figured if I'd done that, I'd most probably have done the others and I wouldn't have to bother checking them.

I was right - I've been shopping in Melbourne.
