Dave,

Suppose you mean the road from Julia Ck to Kynuna?

Old advice I know, but we went up there a few years ago, like about 4 yrs ago, now that I think about it!

There's probably over 50kms of bitumen now, and the remainder is black soil. I've been over it many times over the years, and I'd class it as good. Just need to watch grid approaches, and any of the dips, but easy to sit on 90+ clicks along there.

They were working on the section from Landsborough H'way, north towards Mimong Station early this year, but not sure if they just sheeted it, or put bitumen down.

No worries for a Toyota!!!!!!!!!!

Bob.

Seen it all, Done it all.
Can't remember most of it.

My GGGrandfather established 'Rosevale' on that road in 1905. If only he knew there was blacktop now to the turnoff!!!

That would have been a hard life back then...but probably fairly normal for those times.
