Hi all,
would anyone know the road conditions of "Burke Development Road" from Chillagoe to Normanton with a 18ft van. We intend to travel mid August.

Many thanks
Dave

Dave,

No, I don't, but I do know it hasn't been closed this year, there's been so little rain up in that country during this wet.

Suggest you post on here again, say in June or July, and you might get a more accurate, and current reply. Have only been on the section between Wrotham Park and Gamboola, about 10 years ago, and it would have been okay for a 'van, "driven to conditions".

By the sound of the weather reports tonight the wet season in that area is only about to start.
Cheers,
Kevin.

There will still be a lot of cattle coming out at that time so you will encounter road trains and bull dust patches. Drive to the conditions and be aware that cattle also camp on the road at night.
