We are planning to travel up the Birdsville track in early July for the big red Bash, then travel east to Sydney. The obvious route is the Birdsville development road to Windorah then Quilpie.
Does any one know the condition of the development road going east from Birdsville. Obviously if wet it would be a problem. We travel with a Nissan Patrol cab chassis with a alloy canopy.
I am an apprentice retire. Its looking like my most successful career to date.

Every time I've driven it, it's been a nice wide dirt road. Unfortunately, it's been a while since I've been up there.

Ditto.
Usually kept in good condition, prior to BRB, BV races etc they might give it a spruce up grade too if needed.
If it rains, all bets are off !
As long as it's open, you will have no trouble with the Patrol anyway, not towing anything.

As others have said, unless there has been recent rain you will have a great run, and to you and anyone else heading that way around that time don't forget to drop in at Farina. A great stopover for a night, morning tea or lunch, and yes we will be volunteers there again this year. The bakery will be operating at that time so well worth a stop!

Rgds,

Hi Rob

What is it with this one day visit.......lol

We make sure we always stay at Farina when we are in the area and a few days is even better. The bakery is tops and it is well worth the small detour just to drop in for oven fresh products.

Enjoy your two week working stay and say g'day to the great team.


Cheers
