I haven't done that road recently, and yes it is possible to do it slowly with that sized van, but I ask why would you bother unless you specifically wanted to stop somewhere between the two places?
The long road round via Scone will be quicker and easier

Hi Bob,
I went across a few weeks ago the road isn't to bad at the moment.Up over the range gets a little narrow, not a great deal of dirt any more.
Semi trailers go up and over without any problems.

Hi Bob
When you go down that road about 20/25 Ks out still on the bitumen and before the mountains on you right is a property called RAPLOCH .Could you tip your hat to my sister Sandi who pasted away with breast cancer 25 yrs ago on that property.Feel a bit silly writing this but you mentioning the road made me think of her she was a wonderful lady Thanks

Tried that road once in the sedan. Didn't make the distance as it was pretty rocky. Asked a local at Meriwa last time if it had improved and he didn't know as he avoids it too. Go the longer quicker way.

I have used that road quite a lot over the past 20 years or so and only very rarely is it in good nick.

I much prefer the Scone-Merriwa rd and have used it many times towing my 22' caravan as well as solo in the service truck.

go the long way via scone. It takes about the same time as the shorter rd because your average speed is higher.
