January will be hot. It might rain, sometimes it does, generally it doesn't but see http://www.ntlis.nt.gov.au/roadreport/

for the latest road report.

It is recommended only for high clearance 4WDs so if it is a conventional car go the long way.

Not in a rental car! We had to tow a rental car last week that was totally bogged. They hadn't let their tyres down and didn't have a clue how to drive in the bull dust.
