We're thinking of going from Mt Isa down to the Sandover and up through the Davenport Ranges.
Has anyone any recent knowledge of road conditions in that area please.

Thanks all.

Hi Lex, we have just returned from a journey along the Binns Track ending on the Barkley but part was along the Sandover. We found the road to be very, very good with recent grading having taken place. There were a few washout areas along the sides, so just keep a watch out. The Binns through Davenport Ranges was certainly enjoyable, however 4wd definitely at some of the creek crossings and exposed rock roads. The first track into Old Police Station waterhole is completely grown over, but the second track is extremely well maintained and is an excellent place to rest over for a day. Enjoy it. Jan
Couldn't ask for any better!
