Greetings. We ae flying across from NZ to WA next month to pick up our 4x4 parked in Margaret River. We are hoping to drive North to Perth and than on to Kalgoorlie. From there we want to start making our way North along the Goldfields Highway and via Wiluna to Meekatharra. My question is if there is decent roading West from Meekatharra to Carnarvon as we want to spend some time at Ngarloo? And what would the fuel situation be? Many thanks. cheers, Case

At the best of times the gravel road from Meekatharra to Carnarvon or the one that goes across and up to the Exmouth turn-off is pretty rough going. Right now though there has been some pretty severe flooding in the region and most of the unsealed roads are closed and probably will be for a few more weeks yet. The best place to check on conditions is the mainroads WA website for the lastest updates.

I doubt there would be any fuel available between Meeka and Carnarvon. 60 kilometres to the north of Landor, Burringurrah community should have fuel.Gascoyne Junction Hotel which was also the servo was wrecked in the recent floods. Road may be rough and stony (and roadside littered with tyres), but subject to weather conditions and being open would be passable. We have done part of it (Landor to Carnarvon) towing, and only got one flat on the camper, but not recently. Cattle trucks were using the road to the east of Landor.
