    Love the info contained in this website. My only request would be to provide a little mire detail regarding the suitability of towing caravans into some of the areas you describe otherwise a fantastic resource. I will be using you suggestions as a guide in planning our trip for next year. I plan to tow a 15 foot on-road standard Jayco up the Oodnadatta (road conditions permitting) around June. Any suggestions welcomed.
    Keep up the goog work.

      Hi David,

      As long as there hasn’t been rain and there hasn’t been any significant road damage due to rain, then you should have no problem towing a van. We’ve seen plenty of others towing stock standard vans and campertrailers on the Oodnadatta Track, and as we’ve stated in our own guide to the track read it here , the Oodnadatta Track is not so much a ‘track’ as a wide, good gravel road, on which we have travelled at speeds of 110 km/h (towing an off road camper!). We’ve even seen 2WD old bomb backpacker vans on this road. So our advice is to check the conditions a week before and make your decision then. Once on the track, drive to the road conditions, as you would on any other gravel road.

      Cheers, Amanda & Gary

    Hello. You do have some great info on the website here. Do you have any info on the Pilbara region (WA) – and any free maps? I and my partner are travelling there mid next month, and we are trying to get as much info as we possibly can, to maximise our planning. I hope you have some very helpful info…thanks

  • Michael says:

    Hi, most of these maps no longer work. Do you have updated links for these?

    • Gary says:

      Hi Michael, I’m not sure which maps you are referring to. As far as I can see all map links work, at least on my page. Can you advise which ones and I’ll take a look.

  • Lindy sherriff says:

    I am wondering how long it takes to drive from Maree to Blinman and is the road in good condition?

    • Gary says:

      Hi Lindy, it’s about 220km and will probably take around 3 hours depending on stops. The road in from Parachilna to Blinman can vary in condition but I haven’t been on it recently. Generally though it is a typical unsealed road once you hit the dirt. You’d be better off contacting the hotel there for up to date info.
