Hi Peter, the road is in good condition and the creeks crossings are down too. You may want to stop at Lorella Springs for a nice dip in the hot spring, it has a big camp ground and also a bar at the station, with plenty of fishing and the track to the Gulf is easy and vans are going out their at the moment.

P.S. I forgot to mention that King Ash Bay is packed at the moment so would ring first. And the road was graded 7 weeks ago.

Peter,

Lomarieum Lagoon is a nice spot to camp...turn off near the ruins of St Vidgeon Station.

Butterfly Springs NP is a good spot too and Lorella Springs is really worth a couple of nights ...very nice out there.
