I am planning a trip from Perth to the Flinders Range Area where we would like to spend about 2 weeks having a look around. I have a near new TD42 Patrol and Camper Trailer. All the reports I read suggest that the Anne Beadell Hwy is an interesting way to go but most make mention of vehicle damage from overhanging trees and bushes. Does anyone know if this is a consistent problem on this route or is it just something that will cause a scratch or two?

Slim,
It's not so bad that you wouldn't go - and the scratches caused to our vehicle from our AB trip in 2002 were certainly not as bad as those endured on the CSR this year. In neither case was a repaint necessary, just a bit of polish. Not get too stressed about it. People just mention it so that those that can't bear a bit of scratching don't go unwarned and then complain. ExplorOz

Aaron,

I wouldn't be going out in that area at this time of the year,when it's stinking hot it's not much fun and there wouldn't be too many travellers to assist if you had a problem.
We are planning our trip for next August/September. We went to Ayers Rock and Alice Springs earlier this year but we travelled in August via the Great Central Road which was in general, fairly good. It was quite warm out there during the day. When you make your decision about which way to go, enjoy your trip.
