Watch the cowboys

by Pam S

When we went to Cape Leveque back a few years ago it was fine where the roadworks were going on, but the last fifty or so kms were really scary. Where the roads have been graded and there is a steep bank on each side some 4WD cowboys were tearing along at incredible speeds and nearly tipping over as they run up the side of the bank to pass. We were almost forced to stop until they passed.

However, the rewards were worth it. Just go!!! We are going to do the Gibb in mid August, with am AWD Rav CV6 towing a Windsor Rapid 471, extender dirt road.....slowly.
You can do it, just take it very, I repeat, very slowly and enjoy.
Cheers, Pam

Would you tow a Windsor rapid 501 to Cape Leveque?

Caravans on cape lavique rd!

As on July 2012 I would highly recomend you leave your caravan in Broome and either carry a cheap tent or better than that a swag or book in to a cabin, as unless you dont want your caravan to make it home dont take it up that road!
