Road to Discovery
The Imlay Road is a good choice, as is the Wyndham/Cathcart road - if you take the extra couple kms thru Bombala
(as opposed to hitting the dirt and taking the short cut to Bibbenluke) you will also have a good ride. (the dirt between Cathcart & Bibbenluke is very corrugated, thus the extra 19kms to stay on the bitumen to Bombala
is worth it).
We towed our 2.5tonne van thru there about 9 months ago - the corrugations on the trip down the bypass were pretty rough, so chose the extra bitumen on the return trip - much better! The ride up the Great Divide is heaps easier on both Imlay and Wyndham/Cathcart road than it is on Brown Mtn - and much less traffic.
If you want to get to Cooma asap - choose Imlay Road. If you want to see Pambula/Merimbula/Bega
on the way, then choose Wyndham/Cathcart road.
