Charlie,

Just above your post there is a row of buttons - one of them says roads, where you will find the info that you want.

Yea, sorry. I found that about 5 minutes after I posted on the forum. Not good news.

Hi Charlie 1,

We traveled these roads last year,from Alice up the Tanami to Halls Creek the only part that was rough was the WA side mainly because they cant get a grader driver to work that run.
GCR we traveled from Laverton back to Alice its a great wide road in places
easy camping off the side the only bad bit was around Docker River for about 120 ks.
All in all was a great trip.

Regards Peter & Jan

PS we are doing we hope will be doing the GCR from Winton to Alice and back to Laverton again from May 15th

I'll second that the corrugations were incredible on the WA side!

Considering that part of the Tanami Rd is already closed and more rain can be expected, how long after it rain does it usually take to reopen a road? We do have an alternative route, Alice - Katherine - Kununurra, but gravel is more my thing and this whole trip was based around travelling the Tanami Rd. Would be rather disappointing.

Charlie,

If the wind is still blowing out there it does in march - april the road will be ok to at least the tanami mine as the fuel trucks run every day from alice and they fix the road asap after rains. I know this as i worked out there.

Regards Peter & Jan
