There is a minor road running between the Penninsula Dev Rd and Burke Dev Rd, from Artemis to Dunbar

Has anyone travelled it ?

Just wondering if its suitable for Patrol & off road camper, as we are heading west, after hopefully doing CYP. Just seems it would save coming all the way back to Cairns, but as we have found before, shortcuts don't always same time

In 2003 we (two vehicles - GU 4500 and 61 series with 6.2 Chev) tried to go from Burke Development rd , to Musgrave .... I think via Koolata stn ? My mate got stuck in the Mitchell river (61 series) I had to pull him & camper out ..... he fell into a submerged bog hole ... we then went to Mareeba & up . I think that crossing is doable if not heavily loaded & tyres down to ~ 18 lb. I believe there is an easier crossing towards the coast at the Aboriginal settlement .....

Thanks lizard
We probably need to get hold of a detailed map and some more research.

This is the 1st leg of trip round Oz, so don't want to take too many risks with the vehicle & camper.

Sounds like something we would go for.... in our old GQ....closer to home...LOL
