Hoping someone can advise on the current condition of the road from Bourke via Wanaaring & on to Tibooburra. On the EO map it looks like it's a solid line to the Tibooburra turnoff. Does this mean it's sealed?
Also looking for info on the section from the turn off to Tibooburra which is shown as unsealed.
Just doing some research for an upcoming trip to this area
Thanks in advance
Paul

Drove Tibooburra to Wanaaring to Hungerford last September, was dirt all the way....was a good wide dirt road back then, but boring as buggery to drive that Wanaaring to Tibooburra stretch IMO, and a mate driving his vehicle with me said the same....reckon it’s due to scrub lining the road most of the way giving you very little else to look at. Recent rains obviously will have changed actual road conditions, so can’t help with that exact info.

Thanks for the info. Have been that way many years back but couldn't remember what it was like.
From your comments I might give it a miss as we only have a week out there on this trip
Cheers

It's only that particular stretch of road I mentioned that was boring....I really enjoyed the drive from Cameron Corner to Tibooburra via Sturt National Park if you were planning on going further then Tibooburra.

Thanks,
I am familiar with the section through the Sturt National Park as we have done this a number of times over the years on our way further north.
It was the section to the east I was checking on, but thanks for your comments.
We only have 9 days in the region for this trip so I was looking for something new to see. I think we'll stick around Wilcannia, White Cliffs areas as we will probably come up along the Darling through Menindee
Thanks again for you comments
Cheers

Whitecliffs to Mootawintji Nat Park is a nice drive and the Park itself has nice camping and some wonderful walks.

Also, the drive from Wilcannia north to the Paroo-Darling Nat Park and Peri Lake is worthwhile, with petroglyphs around the shores of the lake near the carpark. I don't think you can camp there, but there are some nice bush camps on the way, or go from the lake to Whitecliffs.
