Hi Rod,
I think you mean $1-98.95 per litre, and not $198 and 95cents per litre...lol.. I take it that's for diesel? We use unleaded. Thanks for the info. We will be heading that way on the way back from Cairns mid August.
regards

Rod

Have you just travelled through Hell's Gates???

I thought the road was currently closed from Doomadgee to Boroloola?????

I also want to go through Nathan River but reports say it is also closed????

Hi Allan,
I came from the East and went as far as Carsons River couldn't cross it as large rocks had been shifted and I had a trailer, so I took the track via Carsons homestead which took me to the Tablelands Hwy then went to Katherine that way.
When I left Burke and Wills Roadhouse I was told the road was open but check with councils along the way, there were no signs on the east side at that time.
The road was rugged and washed out in places, but passable in high clearence 4X4.

Rod,
We are currently in Darwin (Howard Springs cp) and want to do the Savannah Way from mataranka to Cairns (via Boroloola and Burketown). I am not sure how sound the road is for a LC 200 series towing a 3 tonne dedicated offroad van - official reports are saying it is open with care and only to high clearance 4WDs.

Where exactly is Calvert River and Homestead? I can only find a reference to the Calvert River to the West of Doomadgee.

Calvert River is 264kms from Boroloola, and 20kms from the Calvert Hills t/o.
When I can there I walked the river which was up my waist at the deepest point, they marked the crossing with rocks on rocks and would have had to zig zag around them, couldn't with a trailer on,
There were jump ups in places about a foot high and was was out in places, water holes you had to go round.
It took me nearly 10hrs to come frome Burke and Wills roadhouse to get to Calvert River. As I was by my self I didn't risk crossing.
If you are unable to cross you have a 794 km detour to get to Calvert Hill t/o on the Savannah Rd.
It maybe safe to cross you will have to ask at Boroloola
Sorry I can't be more helpfull

Just checked the NT road report the Calvert Hills road is closed between Tablelands Hwy and Savannah track, looks like the creek I crossed is flooded, I crossed it when it was about 800cm deep they had more rain there by the looks of it.

Nathan River is open to all traffic, there is a few deep water crossings with sand so be warned it can catch you out, the section from Cape Crawford to Nathan River Ranger Station is good except for 1 main crossing which is sandy and catching many out! otherwise North of the ranger station one creek crossing is very deep and due care is required!

Hi peoples ......
Calvert is now "resonably" passable, it is a tad over knee height and still some big rocks but vans a getting through, need good clearance and there are on average one 4wd passing every hour so just wait and go over with others ....
We sent a road train up from Doomadgee via Calvert road to Tablelands Hwy a week ago so it is fine .......
Cheers, Joe n Mel, Doomadgee
