should be fine like any road late dry it has had a lot of traffic so it may be a bit rough sensible driving will see you through, just a hint make sure the car and van can be locked securely or you will travelling home a lot lighter

Give this site a go it should be helpful. The tourist centre in Katherine have good up to date information on this road. Give them a try also.

When we travelled it 18 months ago it was very rough in places and lots of creeks/rivers

A good trip in the Patrol

Hi, you realise that the Carpentaria Highway route via Daly Waters and Heartbreak Hotel is tar all the way?? This is a good road as takes alot of traffic.
Or do you intend to go via Roper Bar and Nathan River?
The second has a number of creek crossings that should be low enough by September and whilst nearly 20 years since living in Borroloola it was always a rough track. Surely someone will post with recent track conditions

We travelled from Mataranka to Booroloola in september last year via the Roper bar and the Nathan River rd with a Cavelier off road camper we found it a great drive with plenty to see and if like us you had the time just take your time. There are some rough spots as in wash outs and bulldust holes but all in all we had a ball with no problems, not to say 12 months later the roads will be the same but as we said before just take your time and enjoy check out things like the biggest and best hamburgers at the Roper Bar Store, Butterfly Springs and the Southern Lost City
enjoy your drive all the best Hayd & Jude
