Description

This trek provides access into the Gregory National Park (Judbarra) from the east via a turn off from the Buchanan Highway.

Coming into the National Park from this approach you will arrive at the northern end of the Humbert Track and miss the most notorious southern sections of track (Broadarrow & Wickham Tracks), but this route is still not suitable for caravans and there are significant areas to explore requiring high clearance 4WD with rock steps and boulders to negotiate. This is a great excursion for those looking for a small taste of the options available in the Gregory National Park including access to the main features such as the Bullita Homestead, Fig Tree Yard, Top Humbert Yard, and if desired a short side trip to Limestone Gorge.

This Trek provides the easiest option for exploring the Judbarra / Gregory National Park as it does not include the Bullita Stock Route (although you could easily include that if you wished).

From the Bullita Homestead, this trek gives you the route north up the 2WD accessible Bullita Access Road all the way to the Victoria Highway, with an optional 8km side trip (high clearance 4WD only) to Limestone Gorge.

Make sure you book your National Park campsites online before you arrive and check local conditions. If you travel soon after the wet season tracks may still be very wet and boggy.

If you're looking for a route with all the 4WD Tracks including the Bullita Stock Route, please refer to our Trek:- Gregory National Park.

TIP

Please refer to Road Reports published by the local shire and/or main roads for the area you intend to visit. Road/Track conditions can change significantly after weather events. Travellers must be responsible for their own research on current conditions and track suitability.
Before you go, check current track conditions by phoning the Parks & Wildlife office on +61889750833, or 1800246199 or visiting the NT Roads Report website.

The 4WD network usually opens in the dry season (May to November) and then closes during the west season with the onset of rains (Dec to April).

Track conditions vary and include rocky sections that are tough on tyres, creek crossing and boggy sections. High clearance is essential on all tracks in the Judbarra / Gregory National Park. No caravans.

If sticking to this route, you should be right with a very light, small but heavy duty offroad camper trailer.
