We are contemplating a trip in mid July to the Warrubungle NP & then up to Cameron's Corner. Can anyone give me some details on the road from Bourke, Wanaaring to Tibooburra? and now as it has been raining?

I am heading out there next week and will be back on the 13th or 14th. Is that too late for a track condition report?

I use to work at Tibooburra - for the most up to date info - contact the National Parks office at Tibooburra. They get all the up to date info from the RTA, the postman or lets say postperson; locals; truckies; tourists; police; roo shooters etc; the population is not real big (150 in town) - and the conversation usually involves road conditions. If it rains 200Km away the parks office knows of it & the road situations. They keep track of conditions along the Wanaaring Rd, Silver City HWY to B'Hill; White Cliffs; Cameron Corner Rd; Strezlecki; Bore track; road up thru Toona gate etc.
Cheers Jeff
PS. If you have time find out if access thru to the Gumvale Gorge and gold battery is still open - a great 4WD adventure (between Milparinka & Tibooburra).

Check the BOM report. We have had a fair bit of rain (for out here) and it is still raining today and is suppose to shower for another 2 days. The Paroo river is in flood and the peak is expected to reach Wanaaring by end of this week. Would definately ring and check with the locals. If it stops raining by end of this week you will be right by mid July. The roads will be chopped up but the councils will always grade the roads while they are still damp (don't need to cart water then) so it will probably be like a highway. Good luck.

Cheers,
Hughesy
