Anyone travelling Adelaide or Melbourne to NQ and just want to do it fast , should consider the route Hay, Bourke , Barcaldine, Aramac, Torrens Creek. The last 100 k of unsealed road between Aramac and the creek is about to be sealed. Shortest, best roads, less towns.
If going through Belyandro Crossing (Clermont to Charters Towers) be advised that the #$%@ that owned the servo has sold out, a gentleman now owns it.
Left my K in Cairns, fly up next week to continue, been as far as Cooktown.
