Default Camping on the Burke Developmental Road?

[Since this group is dead as a doornail, I might as well take this
opportunity to ask questions and see if there are still any

Has anyone driven the Burke Developmental Road (in Northern Queensland,
from Normanton to Chillagoe)?

If so:

- Is it a worthwhile trip (considering that we like the outback, wide
open spaces, etc.)?

- How about camping, both in the wild (i.e. beside the road, on a rest
area, on a parking stop) and on some form of official campground (for
example on the property of a homestead, etc.)?

- Any other info?

FYI, we will be there around early April and will betravelling in a 4WD

Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
