Berni & Janice O’Keefe
We just had a message from Janice and Berni O’Keefe, who are doing a lap of the Kimberley before going back to their teaching jobs at Beagle Bay:
Thought I would let you know, as may be useful if you are interested in detailing road conditions, but the road into the Wolfe Creek Crater was THE worst!! We took the 2 vehicles in and after about 30+kms, stopped and had a discussion and we turned back around and went out. The road is so stony and rocky. We have travelled on roads with patches of stones and when you are aware of these you travel carefully to avoid the risk of course of fracturing your tyre, but this road was just not worth the attempt, was continuously stony. Who knows, it could’ve changed just around the corner, but after that many kms in and being like that all the way, we decided wasn’t worth it. And of course this now changes our own perspective on the Tanami Track as we were going to travel that come end of December working our way home to Victoria, but won’t be doing that either……back to taking the long way round.
