The roads are unlikely to be any issue if you take it quietly.
But there are significant distances between places that can offer assistance in the event of a breakdown, so a small problem can become expensive.

Cheers,
Peter

The Plenty varies according to traffic density (cattle trucks), but it will be generally OK.

Cheers,
Peter

our friends did the Plenty from Alice last June - was very green but lots of bull dust in places - they towed a camper trailer
