I'm wanting to drive the old Cobb and Co Road from Grafton to Glen Innes, which is a 4WD track. Any tips or recommendations?

If you mean the one with the tunnel by the river, that is quite a good road but a bit narrow in places. If you go east to west you will be hanging out over the river a bit if you meet someone coming the other way, but it is OK with care. Any sound 2 wheel drive car would get thorough if it had not been raining.

Cheers,

I drove it last week in a Grand Vitara and it was fine, a bit dusty. I think I saw only 4 vehicles all the time I was on the road. If in a 2wd vehicle you may need to stop from time to time to clear fallen rocks off the (centre) of the road.

As said already, a 2wd vehicle can usually do it in the dry as it's basically a good gravel / dirt road, though it's not suitable for towing things like large caravans due to the tight twisty turns along the way.

We wrote a blog about that road. Have a look here. Great drive and worth taking a few days, camping at the Mann River reserve.

Cheers,

Thanks all, especially to Kevin, and John and Val. There has been a lot of rain in the area recently so I'll wait for a couple of weeks before tackling it. It sounds like a beautiful drive.
