I have just had a look at the RACQ site re road closures RACQ and it looks like 2 years of planing just got washed down the table drain.
Can anybody shed any light on how well the corner country drains/dries out if there is no more rain.
Heading to Cameron corner/Birdsville/Hadddon corner first week of July.
Thanks
Will

Its not looking good for the meetups at CC and Birdsville is it ?

We are leaving Friday for 3 weeks so hope that the rain eases a bit for the next 3 weeks.

From our point of view I guess we all hope it drys so we can get through but want the rain for the economy of the area....... Looking at maps we may have to rearrange our schedules. but two weeks before we are there - well nearly. Have a look at South Australian roads too.
Cheers,

Suggest also checking if travelling in north-west WA. We've had an unseasonal 80 mm over the past two days (in Broome).

Well Collyn R, unseasonal it sure is - just looked up the July, August and Sept averages AND they are they are 5, 2 and 2 respectively. Another observation is that the totals for June to December is only 82! - so I guess you've got 6 months worth.

The farmers will be happy and the tourists - well they'll get over it in a few days.

Kind regards

Hi all,

As you may have noticed the ExplorOz road conditions are behind. I have it in the schedule for a full round of updates tomorrow. We have been so swaped with orders and other processing that some of these jobs have slipped. We now have a new member of staff starting in a few weeks so this should not be a problem again. Please check back tomorrow afternoon, sorry for the inconvienence.

Re the corner country - its a lot like other areas in that region - IF they have had some rain (not a deluge) - IF the sun comes out and you have a few nice days to follow, with some breeze, 2 days might see people moving - possibly 3 days with no effect on the roads - BUT there is always slushy bits left to get round - some of them can be problematic - if it was me, I'd be taking advice from locals on the phone just prior - some of those long puddles that don't want to dry up can ruin a good holiday !
