wentworth to bourke along the darling river

Hi,I'm planning a trip from Wentworth following the Darling river to Bourke towing a 21'semi offroad van with a 200 series diesel cruiser.Can any body tell me the things that are a must to bring along besides food,water and fuel.What side of the river is the best to travel and see things? We hope to take a week to get to Bourke.Many thanks from 2 Bowlers.

Probably a boat would be advisable at this stage, flood warnings out for the Darling.

Hey 2 bowlers
Keep an eye on central darling shire council web site. Click on road closures.
The roads around Menindee Lakes were all closed a week ago.
Open now though

The site to monitor is this one. When you click on the flood symbols you get info from the council area where a symbol is. Also there are links to the local council road web pages.

It currently shows Wilcannia to Tilpa (east side) is closed.

Hi Heinz T,

Just checked the live traffic update site and it said it the road was closed between Wilcannia and Tilp according to their map tags.

Then I checked the Central Darling Council website re road closures, and it said
true as of Monday 11th March 2013 at 8:41am, the road is open.
In fact from their list they are all open and the White Cliffs to Mandalay SR6 is open to light traffic only.

So it looks OK.

Planning on doing that exact trip in the reverse direction in April.

Cheers, Bruce.

Should have included that it seems to be unanimous on these pages that the east side is best for camping along the way.
