Hi Guys
We are on our way to the muster and planning to cross from Boulia to Tobermory,
Jervious, Gemtree to Alice. Has anyone been on these roads recently?
Appreciate your feedback.

Was excellent 6 weeks ago!
But mustering out there now, so road trains are starting to cut it up a bit.
Keep it slow, with tyres down & you should enjoy it.
See you in Alice.
Regards Peter.

Hi everyone! We have been meeting so many of you as you cross the Plenty. No shocking reports of road conditions so far.

Looking forward to seeing those of you making the return trip via the Plenty!

Have just completed The Plenty / Donohue from west to east last week and I thought it was in good condition compared to 2010.
The worst part was after leaving Gem Tree, 150 / 200 kms of serious corries. There had been lots of road rebuilding around Jervois Station. Camped the first night at Arthur River, had the place to ourselves.
I had allowed two nights on the road to get to Boulia, but buy the second night we were well east of Boulia and camped at "Hamilton Hotel". Some more of the Donohue has been bitumined.....40/50 kms maybe.
So the trip back was OK.
