Drop the tyre pressures on your vehicle and boat trailer. I ran 22psi on my trailer with same size boat as yours. 25psi on the cruiser.

Id be taking more spare fuel if i was you.....?

Especially if you have a slow day & go exploring.
Its easy around there to do some miles and not a heap of boats available if you get in trouble.
I had to tow a guy into essington the other week who ran out of juice, i wasnt impressed.

This will be my 10th trip up there.You will want more than 100lts I take a 44gal drum which I put about 190lts,a full tank in the boat 65lt & 3 x 20lt jerry cans & 3x20lts jerry's of Diesel to get back home.We generally use all of it.I was running a 60 Honda on a 4.85 CJ.We do do a lot off miles exploring some days when the weather is right.we are also running a small Jenny to make ice so we have cold p/$$ in the esky for fishing durning the day
Will send u a PM regarding the fishing
