One for the central QLD'ers, I am planning a trip north in August this year and looking for a camp between the Fitzroy beef road and the old highway from Sarina to Marlborough. On one map it shows a road south of the May Downs beef road through Royles station and Tartrus station. We were hoping that to go that way and hopefully camp at Tartrus weir. Can we do that? is there any camping along the May Downs beef Road? It would reduce the travelling each day as we are intending to go from Biloera to Eungella dam in two days.
Thanks in advance, PAWB.

Hi PAWBWell the things you read here ! Royles was named after my uncles Roy and Les (pronounced Royals) Owned by my Dad -- I spent the first 7 or 8 years of my life there. I think Royles is still probably owned by Tartrus .Best give them a call but I cannot help you with a number. Their name is probably McCamley. Cheers, Graham.

The Beef Rd is the Fitzroy Dev Rd, goes from Dingo to just nearNebo. The May Downs Rd has been closed to all but local traffic for a few month's since the floods. I last heard a couple of weeks ago that it was still shut. Police were going down hard on all but locals using the road. Their definition of a local was someone who lives on the road.

Hi All
The May Downs Beef Road has since opened in the last few weeks and was being repaired after the floods.
I was speaking to a local today who was able to update us on conditions in the area. All Major roads are Ok.

Keep an eye on conditions hereOutback Qld Roads Conditions@ExplorOz
