G/day All,
Last update was at Normanton, and since then we have travelled the Savannah Way via Burketown, Doomadgee, Hells Gate, Borroloola, Roper Bar, Mataranka, and Katherine.
The road conditions along the section from Normanton to Burketown were good in general with the section from Leighhardt River X/ing to Burketown now sealed. Burketown to Doomadgee is also now good sealed road with only a short section just out of Burketown still gravel. Doomadgee to Hells Gate is mainly good graded gravel with only minor corrigations. Hells Gate to the NT/ Qld border is quite rough with many areas of severe corregations. Border X/ing to Borroloola was a mix of good and bad with the good, being real good and the bad, real bad.About 50/50 I'd say. Borroloola to Roper Bar through the Limmin Nat Park is all fairly rough and corregated,with areas of bulldust and rocky outcrops. Creek crossings and dips in gullies are sometimes rough and sharp and all should be approached with caution. There were no water crossings more than 400mm deep and none that would require a snorkel .
Will post fuel prices later as it's getting dark and I can't see.
Cheers, Trev K.


Always do right. This will gratify some and astonish the rest.
