G'day Bill and Netti,
Have just arrived in Borroloola from Lawn Hill towing a 23ft Boroma. Couldn't get into Kingfisher Camp because of Fires. Not a lot of water in the creeks ,road fair to Hells Gate (which is fully open again ). Corrugation pretty bad in places after that through to Borrroloola.
Regards
John

You will be fine, it is a bit rough due to rain about 4 weeks ago and tyre tracks in the blacksoil mud, it is all dry now and many have been up that way with vans since .........
There are roadworks bettween Burketown and Gregory Downs so they may hold you up a bit and re-sheeting just west of Doomadgee ....
As for the fires, a kiwi couple are managing Kingfisher at the moment and they are stressing a fair bit, my guess is they have not seen fires berofe :-) .... fires are fairly normal up here at this time of the year, lit by "black" lightining hahahhahaa
Cheers and safe travels...
Joe

Bill, Joe pretty much covered it. Road from Borroloola to qld border was ok with some rough patches, qld border onwards a bit better. Drive to conditions and experience and you'll be fine. No issues with water, less than 30cm and most dry.

Have fun, it's a great drive!
