I have friends who (hopefully!) travelled through that way a few days ago but they're out of mobile phone range still...best bet is to call into the police station to check on the road conditions...nobody knows the roads (or has contacts) like an outback cop, and Birdsville's is no exception!
The pub is always a good bet too-there'll be someone who's come through that way-but having the police know your whereabouts can sometimes be a lifesaver.
Happy travels!

Thanks Robyn4 - we always check with people around us and especially the police station in B'ville. Just thought on checking before we leave home. Had been told it was in terrible shape two weeks ago but as you can appreciate can change very quickly. Thanks again. Jinki

Came through there a week ago. No problems at all. Having said that just be careful of lose gravel on the corners. Cheers Brian.

Diamantina Council has road conditions posted on their website. Or ring the Birdsville info centre.
