Wondering if anyone knows what the road is like at the moment, or would it be a better option to go from Barkly Homestead north. We are towing a tinny which we have done before and don't mind rough roads. Just want the quickest option this time.
We are currently in the Noosa region.
Cheers

If you don't need to go to Burketown then it would probably be quicker on the blacktop all the way from Noosa.

I would go to Barkly then head north, it has been a wet wet, the tinny might start floating while still on the trailer on some of the water crossings via Hells Gate

Thank you for the reply.
Was thinking that.
Don't need to go to Burketown so will leave the dirt for another day.
Actually once when crossing the Archer river I looked in the mirror and the boat and trailer was doing exactly that.

Glad to said you don't mind rough roads; Barkley Homestead to Cape Crawford pub is a doosy. :-)

Yes it's bitumen. Narrow and very wavy with high shoulders.

I thought it was typical stuff, just get one wheel off the tar well before needing to, pick your spot to get on the shoulder, pick your spot to get off it.

That is unless you see a road train, then you pick your spot and head for the hills lol

(but you know all this already)

Struck a bit of that...narrow wavy bitumen the other day going from Nyngan to Walgett. Not as bad as Menindee to Wilcannia though.
Lost the spare wheel bracket off the trailer.

The problem is people put one wheel off the tar and don’t slow down showering stones in every direction.
A good road to pick up a stone dent or broken windscreen.
