Hi Everyone,

Just about ready for our trip, only the last minute things to do.

Travelling west to Windorah then taking the Diamantina Development Rd to Bedourie then on to Boulia to the Donohue Hwy / Plenty Hwy to Alice Springs to Uluru.Kings Canyon then to the Tanami Road to Northern Hwy > Fitzroy Crossing > Windjana Gorge Rd > Gibb River Road > Kununurra an back via the bitumen

any advice regarding road conditions, fuel stops, would be appreciated.
We have a diesel Maverick with a body lift, long range tank and towing a camp trailer.

Thanks
Kim

Hi Kimlee,

It would be a good idea to check the road conditions on this site or state webs
as there has been a lot of water everywhere you look like your heading.
There are 3 maybe 4 fuel stops on the tanami we topped up last year all the way up that track, we found fuel cheaper in Wyndum rather than Kununurra was about 15 cents cheaper, a good 4wd road atlas shows most of the info for stops.

Regards Peter & Jan

Hi Kim,

There is no fuel at Tobermorey near the Qld/NT border on the Plenty. Many maps still show that there is fuel there.

Last I heard was the road was closed on Near Windorah. Also on the NT side of Boulia
I am planning the same trip 5th may and have been watching the road conditions with some interest.. Conditions are improving however the road is closed at the moment.

Cheers
