Is it too wet to travel the Gibb River Road December?

I am keen to drive to Kununurra, just myself and my dog, this December 2010. I have December and January to travel and really want to head to the Kimberley.

I am wondering if the weather will be too wet and unpredictable to travel the Gibb River Road at this time of year? I would love to see the gorges via the Gibb River Road and have been told it's a must see, however, I really don't want to be stuck somewhere waiting for the roads to clear. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Gibb River Road in December/January

I am sorry to disappoint you, but chances are that the Gibb River Road will be closed. Most gorges, all campgrounds and the stations along the roads will definitely have closed for visitors.
