Hi Colin,

As far as I recall its sealed all the way from Pt Hedland down to Auski RH, and from Newman across to Tom Price, Parburdoo and all the way west to the Nanutarra Roadhouse.

Cheers,

Hi Colin if you are going from Auskii to Tom Price via Whittnoom it is unsealed all the way and can be very rough.
Cheers

G'day Everyone

The "Warlu Way" or the Tom Price road from the Great Norther Highway to Tom Price is a fully sealed road, very nice drive actually.

This was Karijini Drive or the Newman to Tom Price road - now the "Warlu Way"

The Wittenoom road through Rio Tinto Gorge is mainly unsealed, the bitumen seal is from the Munjina Roadhouse (Auski) to where the old Wittenoom town site access was previously, the road has been re-aligned to feed trourist traffic away from Wittenoom it self.Rio Tinto Gorge has a sealed surface and its quite chooped up from flooding and heavy haulage transport and it is gravel from Rio Tinto Gorge ~ Nanutarra Road ~ to where it feeds into the Tom Price Road.

Karijini National Park road system has been adversly affected by seasonal rains, the park is open but only the bitumen access to Dales Gorge/camp ground.
