How To Get There
If heading for the Gulf of Carpentaria by road, it is bitumen all
the way to Karumba from Bourke, NSW (1,948km via Mitchell and
Landsborough Hwys.), Cairns (752km via Gulf Development Rd) or Brisbane
(2,156km via Warrego and Landsborough Hwys. and Burke Development Rd.
If attempting the drive off the bitumen outside of the months of
August and September, don't even think about driving it unless you have
a 4-wheel drive vehicle, and have some experience in fording flooded
rivers and beating your own path through the bush.
After rain, the roads are generally impassible, so check road conditions before starting your journey.
