The Burke Developmental Road is a Queensland (Australia) developmental road. It links Cloncurry and Normanton in a south–north direction, then continues to the east 30 km north from Normanton, till Dimbulah, where it becomes the Mareeba Dimbulah Road.
The road crosses the Gilbert River. This bridge was named after two of the region's indigenous leaders, Lily and Jubilee Slattery. A major unsealed section begins about 45 km north of Normanton and continues until Chillagoe. As of 2014, some sections totaling about 15 km are unsealed between Chillagoe and Dimbulah. It may become impassable during the wet season. In mid-2007, A$28 million worth of funding was allocated for the widening of the road.
