Paraburdoo to Newman travel times help wanted

Hi

Am just after a bit of travelling time information from anyone who has done the Paraburdoo to Newman drive or the reverse leg.

Ive done the usual google maps and exploreoz.com search, which lists the distance as 336kms. But, they list the travel time as around 5 hours. This doesn’t seem to add up (even keeping in mind the lower speed limits at some stages of the trip?

If anyone could confirm or challenge these times, it would be greatly appreciated as Im considering taking a job which would mean this would be a semi regular commute so I really need to know definitively what the real time expectations could be

Thanks in advance, any info would be fantastic

Cheers

Hi!

We drove Tom Price to Newman last year and it took about 4 hours including a short break. So adding the additional ~81 kilometres from Parabudoo will add 45-60 minutes roughly. So Google maps seems to be fairly accurate.

Best regards

Sounds about right from my childhood memories of the drives for interschool sports between the 3 towns.
