We are looking to travel from Sydney to Cairns, down to Mt. Isa via Atherton over a period of approx 2 months, leaving Sydney in early March.
We are in a Toyota Rav4 (not a real 4wd) and my main concern is that along the highway from Ranken to Waramangu (375km) there seems to be no petrol station in between.
Do you know if there is a guide with roadhouses etc (Barkly Hwy & Flinders Hwy)?
Thank you for all the wonderful information on your site and for the free Outback book, I feel much better about our trip after reading it and a whole lot braver.
