Want to travel to Adelaide but need to cross border in nsw Nsw when they lift the restrictions. What is the road from Wentworth to Renmark like, will I need a map, travelling in a land cruiser. Is there likely to be water to cross?

How long ago was that? I am in the same boat need to get a vehicle I have bought in NSW to return to SA. Its a motorcycle (road bike). I know some of the road is bitumen and the road is dirt. Also waiting for the borders to open. I could take it slow on this road or the long way via Broken Hill.

Thanks.

Without crossing the border into Victoria (which is what the question was about) you must stay on the northern side of the river.
It is 151km from Wentworth (in NSW) to Renmark (in SA) by the shortest route. The first 25km is bitumen and the last 13km is bitumen.
The remaining 113km is gravel.

So from Wentworth am I taking the Renmark road and turning left when it gets to Nulla Road and going north of Lake Victoria, past Rufus River Park until it comes onto Wentworth road to Renmark. Is it about 3 hours?
Many thanks

Turning right onto Nulla Road (not left) will be the quickest route.
Left via Rufus River will have more scenic options and is a bit more complicated.

Cheers,
Peter

Just saw this post so don't know if you have left yet.
We went through on the day you posted. No problems at all, few corrugations but nothing serious. Stayed south of lake Victoria.

The road will be a typical mix of country dirt roads from corrugations, sandy sections and good sections.

It not signposted, but you have 2 options. The one that we prefer is the lower road that will take you through Ruffus River and the bottom of Lake Victoria. Nice little lookout and display there, while the Main Road skirts the top section of Lake Victoria.

Then when you cross into South Australia, a great detour down to the Todd Obelisk and Scab Inspectors Hut .

Wompinni Station (at the most western end of the GPS track, on the river) is being developed for tourist visits.
Not sure if they are open now or not. A wonderful bit of diverse country right on the river.
Call them on 0422138074.
You will need a decent map...... :)
