Have just come back from a 6 week trip through the gulf. We got through from Borrololla to Burktown, down to Gregory Downs, Lawn Hill, back up to Normanton and Karumba then across to Chillagoe via Dunbar station/Mitchell River.

We were probably only the 2nd or 3rd party though the road at that time. In fact the roadhouse at Hells Gate hardly had any beer in the fridge as they weren't expecting too many through yet. Road was rough in most sections with plenty of 2nd and 3rd gear driving although some sections where 80-90kph was okay. Robinson and Calvert Rivers were both very deep and fast but crossable, should have gone down somewhat as it is nearly 4 weeks since we crossed them. All other creeks and rivers had water but were fine to cross. At the time the road to Kingfisher Camp was impassable.

The road had not been graded at the time we travelled although they were just starting west of Doomagee. Verry few corrugations since it was so soon after the wet.

There is still lots of water around in billabongs, waterholes and low sections near the road. A few mud patches but nothing you should get stuck in.

Regards
Ando.
