I’m looking for some assistance on planning a trip on the Great central Road from Laverton to Yulara.

I am driving a 4.7L V8 Cruiser towing a large off road caravan.

Two questions.

Firstly is the current state of the road OK for such a rig?

Secondly, after looking at the Trek Notes on ExplorOz, it seems that Opal fuel is available at most locations but it is unclear wether unleaded (Opal or otherwise) is available between Laverton and Warburton. There are two roadhouses on the trek notes, Cosmo Newbery and Tjukayirla, but no mention of whether they have unleaded or Opal. Does anyone know?

Thanks in anticipation

Motley, Brian and Margaret Fox have just come through that way travelling with Conrad and Niza. The foxes came down to Kalgoorlie and stayed at the same park as we are in and it sounds like they never had any trouble getting fuel. Suggest you give Brian a call on his mobile as they have now headed up the coast and are going to call in to see Pannatrackers at Pannawonica.
Cheers, Jan O
