If you intend to travel between Bourke and Wanaaring, the road has been closed at the Bourke end for major road works. People are being detoured via Fords Bridge then North or South the 21ks back onto the Hungerford-Bourke Rd or the Wanaaring-Bourke Rd. The detour route through private property is a good well graded piece of road. Not sure when the road will reopen
location - Warragul -Victoria

Oh the Warrego wife's first job was governess for the publican (John Wheelhouse) MANY years ago.
We visited there a few years back a kiwi pharmacist had the pub then, took just about as long as it takes to dispense a prescription as it did for him to serve you.
John Orcsik the actor also held the licence there for a period also.
Fond memories of Fords Bridge!

The lady at Tibooburra store mentioned this closure to me last week when we were out there. Gotta say the road from there to Wanaaring was in great condition when we drove it, but geez the scenery is repetitive and became boring to drive after a while. We headed in Hungerford direction from Wanaaring though, stayed atCurrawinya National Park which is well worth a visit.
