The Kalumburu Road

sunny 30 °C


This Road was rough very rough with corrigations but we were lucky to have had the grader in front of us and had graded 40km of the 98kms that we had to drive to the turn off for King Edward river and Mitchell Falls. Lots of broken springs and shockers on this road. We saw a goldstream campertrailer with broken suspension, they were nursing it back to drysdale river station. Even a motorbike was totaled and the rider was very lucky to escape with broken ribs and a bruised body.


We did brake down on the way back, a plate off the arb bullbar came off and hit the swaybar not much damage thankgod. We cabled tied the plate up until we got back to Drysdale Station. This road has a high number when it comes to recovering vehicles. From Drysdale to the King Edward River turn off its a $5,000 recovery and then $10,000 recovery on the road to Mitchell Falls. So we had a high bounty on our heads but we survived.
