You'll be OK with the trailer Laurie.

Most of the tracks in and out are either good gravel or sand. The main road south of Telfer to Talawana is a very good track.

Cheers
Alan

Laurie,

Yes. Road can be very sandy. Track into desert queen baths is rough andwindy at times but easily negotiated with a trailer. Just watch the tyres on sharp corners so you don’t pick up a stake you missed with the car. No dramas out to Hanging rock or beyond, just take your time. My blogs have a fair bit of info in them on Rudall.

Laurie,

We traveled through during our 2008 desert trek with four vehicles, three of which pulled camper trailers (1 Trak and 2 T vans). Tracks and roads good for traveling.

It's a lovely place so allow time to see and enjoy. Good traveling.

Mike T.
We retired to travell
It's time to go again...

I've taken my trailer up there twice, never had a problem. Sniff, I wish I was going back up there again, I love the place.

I'm interested to see what effect if any the recent cyclone has had up there. Heres our camp at DQD in 2007


And heres the same spot in 2009 (after the 2008 fire went through).

Yes shade was a bit hard to come by in 2008. Looked like the surface of mars! I'm hoping the cyclone dumped plenty of water in the gorges RM. It was bloody dry last year with all the pools between the mouth of DQB gorge and the first main pool of the series being dry (including Kangaroo Pool under the caves).The pool at the mouth was down nearly 2 metres over 2006 and almost a metre over 2008.

Cheers Mick

Hi Laurie
We have been to Rudall River NP twice, first time with our camper trailer and second time we tented. Had no problems with the trailer. Most people seem to camp at Desert Queen Baths but planning to do that would be a bit of a gamble - you don't know how many other people will be there in the rather confined, woodless area. Because of this, and because we enjoy solitude, we camped off the track a few km from DQB each time. It was fabulous and I highly recommend doing this. Picture shows our last year's camp (see on the left) Image Could Not Be Found and visitors to our camp in 2006.Image Could Not Be Found
Enjoy the trip - it is a wonderful place. Megan
