Do you have a specific route you are asking about, or are you asking about a possible route to take. A little more information will ensure more specific responses...

Cheers, The Landy

A suggestion for you with camp spots along the way.
Tibooburra/ Noccundra (camp on the Wilson r. opp. pub.)
Noccundra/Thargominda (camp on river)
Thargo./Eromanga (interesting town, furthest from the sea - camp "1 mile water hole" - just past the Rodeo ground).
Eromanga/Thylunga (continue on this road N, camp Kyabra waterholes - lovely inland lake)
Thylunga/Windorah (camp on Cooper creek)
Windorah/Stonehenge (free camp opp. pub)
Thargo/Eulo (camp on river)
Eulo/Toompine (camp at hall) (could divert into Yowah opal field)
Toompine/Quilpie (camp Lake Houdraman - another lovely inland lake)
Quilpie/Windorah etc.

All these roads are good, no problem for your rig.
If you can obtain it, I suggest the RACQ map, SW corner, which will show the details.

hi mark, We done the same trip a couple of years ago towing an 18 ft caravan so you should have no worries. We went tibby to nocundra, Camped on the wilson river, Noccundra to Quilpy via eromanga, Camped at Quilpy, Quilpy to windorah, Camped 10 k out on the cooper, windorah to longreach. Single lane bitumen road exept where they were doing road works. Tippy to Noccundra was bloody rough, spent about 5 hours doing that couple of hundred klics, probably better now. Gods country mate. cheers mm.

Hi Mark,

it's a great part of the world from Tibooburra to Longreach, whichever way you go.
Just check the road conditions on this website, under the Treks tab at the top, before you head off. There has been a lot of rain up in that area over the past twelve months and it wouldn't take much to close them again.
Putting in a call to the relevant Tourist iNformation Centres will get you informed and up to date info.

Have a good trip,
