Where are you travelling from?

Have you looked at the map?

They are both pretty similar condition as far as I am aware with the NT side in reasonable condition and the Qld side (to Boulia) reasonably undeveloped.

But best to consult the road conditions reports for up to date info.

AFAIK there are fewer facilities on the Sandover.

The Sandover is more remote. The Plenty has more traffic if you're worried about support. Lots of corrugations though ;-(
