Safe Driving Reminders

The condition of the track varies greatly, depending on weight of traffic, weather and how long it is since it was last graded (leveled). Below are tips for driving on unsealed roads:

  • Take it easy! Yes, you are in the middle of nowhere, but there can be a lot of traffic on the track. Be on the lookout for animals – sheep, kangaroos, goats and cows wander in the area.
  • Carry plenty of water – enough to keep all your passengers well hydrated if you have a problem and have to wait several hours (or overnight) for help.
  • Make sure your vehicle is ready for the trip – is your spare tyre in good condition? Do you have a jack, wheelbrace and a few tools so you can fix minor problems?
  • Fill up with fuel in Carnarvon. We hold limited stocks of fuel at the station, so you need to plan to be self sufficient. You will need enough to get to Gnaraloo, drive around while you’re here and, most importantly, get you back out again!
  • If there has been recent rain in the area – check with The Shire of Carnarvon (on 9941 0000) & Main Roads Department that the roads are open before you travel.
