The Kimberley region of Western Australia experiences harsh weather extremes between the “Wet Season” and the “Dry Season”.
During the Wet Season road conditions within the Shire of Halls Creek can change dramatically in a short amount of time making some roads inaccessible to all vehicles. Heavy rain can flood areas along the roads and wash out floodways making them dangerous or unsuitable for both experienced and inexperienced drivers.
Delays can also occur, so it is recommended that a suitable supply of food and water be carried in case of delays to the trip and two spare tyres should be carried at all times.
Extreme caution should be exercised at all floodways and creek crossings. Towing of trailers and caravans on these roads is not recommended.
