The road was almost 400km from Normanton to Cloncurry. But it was a beautiful and ever changing landscape. It varied from endless golden grass plains stretching to the horizon to sparse straggly bush and then the landscape would change to rocky outcrops then acres of gum trees and wattle all flowering. We kept stopping to take photos, but they cannot really show the vast ever changing face of the Australian bush.
The road was good and much of it had recently been up graded to 2 lanes, the occasional sections still as one lane had road works happening so it won’t be long before it is 2 lane all the way.
