I believe that there is an interesting track from Glen Innis to Grafton south of the highway route. Has anyone been on this track & what is the difficulty of this ?

The road itself is a nice easy drive, though if thinking of towing something along it, the size of what someone wants to tow will depend on if that is possible to drive it or not. It's a very windy road with plenty of blind corners and narrow sections of road, there's a tunnel to go through that large / high vans wouldn't fit through, and there's a steep range to come down if coming from Glenn Innes that will test peoples ability not to overheat their vehicles brakes as they descend it.

This is a great interesting area. Don.t rush the trip. The road runs along the Boyd/Mann river. Bitumen from Grafton to Bucarumbi bridge otherwise gravel but with bitumen on the range at the Glen Innes end. there are campsites at Dalmorton and Mann river plus other along the river.

Trucks go through the tunnel which is near Dalmorton.

Hi Bill, We drove that road a few years ago and wrote a blog that covers that section. Click
to have a look at some pics of what is a very scenic area.

Cheers,

Val.

Mann river camp during mid week when it's quiet is a top spot, although the school bus and a few locals make sure it's not completely silent !!

Could easily spend a week here just relaxing !!
