Has anyone travelled the Dowling Track from Bourke to Thargomindah recently? Just wondering what the road surface is like - have 200 series Landcruiser towing 22 ft off- road caravan. Would appreciate any advice.

Hi jb.
Not recently but when I came that way last year the "track" was a well formed and maintained road - even blacktop in places. Plenty of loose gravel but no problems at all.I was towing our AOR Quantum with our 4.2 Nissan Patrol.

Cheers

Hi. We are halfway between Hungerford and Thargomindah right on the Dowling Track and have had many visitors in vans and camper trailers calling in to stay on their way to and from the BRB. Most of them have commented that the road is good. The odd whinger with a big van has said they found it to be a bit rough. But hey it is a dirt road. Cheers Toni

Travelled the road three weeks ago and the key is to reduce your tyre pressures and drive to conditions. Between Hungerford and Kilcowera it is rough in places but very manageable. Don't forget to stay at Kilcowera, by the way. Road improves after Kilcowera. Remember to visit the new Dinosaur centre near Thargomindah.
