But I need some information about outback unselead road in WA if you know
I have been asked for some assistance by a young (mid-20's) Swiss birding
couple who will be visiting Australia later this year.  Part of their trip
will take them to WA.  (They will be in Melbourne in October, but I'm not
sure exactly when they'll be in WA.)
Their personal details and their questions are below.  If anyone can assist
them with the requested information (and ? any other advice), could you
please send it direct to their email address (they are competent in
English).  My impression is that this could be a rather challenging route
for 2 relatively inexperienced* visitors travelling alone in a small 4WD,
but I'm not personally familiar with this part of Australia.
(* They have previously visited Australia in 1996, on their honeymoon,
driving from Darwin to Melbourne in 3 weeks.)
