Took 5 days to travel up Nathan River Rd from here to Roper Bar, staying at Lost City, Butterfly Falls, Towns River & Tomato Island. People told us the road was terrible, rough as guts etc. Shows how people's perception of things are very different. We towed our 3.5t van up here with lowered tyre pressures and averaged 45-50kph. Top speed was around 60kph slowest around 15kph. Overall l thought the road wasn't to bad. Sure the road had big corrugations in parts, but other parts more often than not, were good. Drive to conditions. Worst parts were having to brake to a near stop for a couple of unmarked and hard to see washouts around 50m before culverts or creek crossings



Road is so good! At the turn off towards Lorella it gets rough and corrugated. Towing a 25tt caravan.



Lots of cans and bottles at the turn off, someone could make a few dollars for 5min of picking up.
