 mate the track conditions change all the time so you will need to ask a bit closer to june.

I was there in early dec and the track was very good, there is only one hill you need to power on and that is when your coming out,

Have a great trip!

 Check with the ranger before

 Check with the ranger before you go mate.  Track was pretty good when i went up in September.  Before the causeway is pretty corrugated but apart from that its all good.

 With tyre pressures, the sign recommends 18-20 psi but i'd start at 18 as a minimum and look at going to 16 psi.  Trailer will be lower than that as well.

Just take it slow and enjoy the scenery.  You'll be right :)

 

Cheers,

 Just went up a few weeks

 Just went up a few weeks ago.

Track in is very easy. Just the first hill after the causway you will need to give it some stick.

I towed a 2.25t trailer up there and got up fine, just a bit of speed.

Make sure it is all strapped down tight! for that hill.

The rest is a piece of cake.

I also went up in April and the track hadn't changed so you should be right.
