Hi,

except for the bit between Adel's Grove and Gregory Downs (via Burke and Wills Roadhouse), it's all (single lane) bitumen - as for driving it safely in your rig, well, I reckon it's your call.

Going via Burketown and the Savannah Way - mainly dirt, although I haven't travelled the bit between Adel's Grove and Burketown, so cannot advise on that stretch - road condition can vary a lot, especially if you add a bit of water !

regards
Terry

Hi Taskman

Yes, if you leave by 9-10 am you should be in Kurumba by late afternoon, even with seeing places along the way.
If the road out of Adel's to Gregory Downs is graded, you will have no trouble. If it hasn't been graded watch out for ruts and bulldust patches.

The last 2 times we were there in 2002 & 2004, the road was great to drive on from Gregory Downs Pub to Burketown/Normanton & Kurumba with most of it being bitumen.
