Hi All,

I'd like to ask any of you learned folk if you have any up to date info on conditions on the above tracks, and if not, can you direct me to where I can locate them. I'm ONLY interested in heresay about wet weather / flood conditions. i.e. Are they currently passable?

I am thinking of putting in a call to Tjukayirla Roadhouse to see if they can offer any news of recent travellers.

Thanks in advance for any up to date advisce, R.

We just completed the Gary Hwy, Track is fine, usual washaways, corregations and high spinifex. Be carefull of some washouts. We were in a Defender towing a Tvan.
We did have a detour around Lake Cohen due to high water. This is ok and clearly marked by wheel tracks to your left about 100mtrs from lake edge on your left if heading South. Just be mindfull of the Spinifex under your car and take your time. We took 3 days to complete the Gary Hwy.

We also did the Gunbarrel, Connie Sue and Anne Beadell travelling on our own.

Any other Questions send me a PM

Thanks for that insight Beemer, much appreciated! Can I ask when you complete these specific tracks though? I'm wondering whether it could have rained much more since you completed them.

Thanks, R.

We have only just got back to Melbourne. We completed this area about the 4 July.As for Rain, I dont think you will have any problems.Lake Cohen was our only detour. The tall Spinifex is your only real issue.
As for Connie Sue, Its OK got a few washouts but nothing to hard. Some Corregations can be a pain as usual. Couple of interesting stops to look at on the maps.
