Murray, to my mind Mildura-Brken Hill Tibooburra then Innamincka via the Warri Gate and Orientos Road. Up to Nappa Merrie and the dig tree and then across to Birdsville via Cordillo downs. Straight north to Bedourie.

Birdsville - Bedourie


Cordillo and the Cooper


Cooper to Tibooburra

Check NSW/QLD Main Roads sites for current conditions. If it's been raining or is raining, or expected to rain....be cautious.


Cheers Mick

Hi. We were on the Cordilla Downs Rd from Innamincka just after Easter and there was lots of surface water across the road. The road was very cut up as were the detour tracks around much of the surface water. By contrast, the Arraby Rd from Innamincka via Nappa Merrie was a dream run. The Cordillo Downs Rd improved after Cadelga.

I was in Innamincka at Easter and both travellers I met and people at the Trading post discouraged me from travelling the Cordillo rd due high volume of traffic of trucks. We instead took the Arrabury rd and made it to B'ville in half day. The road is surprisingly flat considering the location.
This is a video I made on few sections of the Arrabury if you are interested:
