Might be possible (depending upon road conditions) - don't reckon it would be advisable, though - a bloody long day, to say the least.

Its about 414kms from memory so you'll be at Normanton by lunch time (IYDFA)! Then go onto Karumba for the night. Roads are generally good depending on the time of the year and the travelling easy. If you think 400 odd k's is too much, even if it is on dirt roads not tracks, then do it in 2 days.

I would say it would be a 5-6 hour trip. The road from KFC to Burketown it pretty good and takes around 2-3 hours depending on whether you tow or not. We left KFC at around 9 and made Burketown for lunch taking it easy. We have travelled on the Nardoo Burketown Road which is corrugated and has big patches of bulldust around and I would say is rougher than the stretch from KFC to Burketown. Can't say what the road is like from the turnoff allong the Nardoo Burketown Road onto the Burketown Normanton Road but say it would be similar. I believe it is very easily done but that is very dependant on the road conditions at the time and how fast you travel on these roads. We sat on around 80-90 km/hr.

Hi Greendog,

We spent 2 days as well. Arrived around lunch on first day and tinkered around for the rest of the day setting yabbie pots, swimming, exploring etc. Next day we hired a tinny for half a day ($45) and motored up the Nicholson. I highly recommend doing this as we had a ball. Took fishing gear (no fish though) and lunch and went right up to the end which was where we saw dozens of freshwater crocs ranging from babies (which were in the trees!) to a couple around 7 feet. Also saw heaps of wild pigs. The scenery is magic though with plenty of sandstone cliffs and boulders around halfway onwards. Rest of that day was lazing around making breads and chatting to others. Left the following day around 9 or 10 from what I remember. It is a great spot and could have stayed another day.

Regards
David
