No dramas just went through from Bourke to Wilcannia with a Coromal van, suggest you go on the track on the western side (smoother) till Louth which has a nice pub
It is only when you see mosquito land on your testicles that you find another way to solve problems without violence

Either side of the Darling Wilcannia to Bourke can be very corrugated at times, lower tyre pressures to assist with comfort and help van cope, drive at a speed to suit van not slaking to pieces :D
Totally forget it if it is even lightly sprinkling rain (it gets closed pretty quick anyway, but you can get caught out), it's very slippery and clay when wet !

Hi Goldlink.
The week before last (dont know if any rain since, but dry when we there), we went thru from Wilcannia to Tilpa, eastern side of Darling, Tilpa to Louth, western side of Darling, and Louth to Bourke, eastern side of Darling, and roads were really good, only a small amount of corrugation's, nothing that will worry your van. Just take it very steady at the cattle grids, some are a bit higher on the grid than the road either side, and some signs for the grids are only 50 meters before the grid. All in all, was pretty good for station country roads.
Have a good trip. Trev
