Hi all

We were due to leave for the Kimberleys via Alice Springs on Monday travelling from Brisbane to Windorah and then Boulia and then onto the Plenty to Alice. We had hoped to be in Windorah on Wednesday/Thursday next week.

Floods have currently closed the roads from Windorah onwards. How long are they likely to be closed?

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks

Richie,

Cooper 4.6M this morning, and 300mm over the approaches. Think Diamantina is still over at Monkira, and will be for next fortnight or so. About 3.5M at Diamantina Lakes last night.

Didn't hear what Georgina is doing last day or so but think it is at minor, or lower flood level.

Come through Winton to Boulia, then Plenty. Ring RACQ for report on Plenty, or ring Glenormiston Station.

Hooroo...

Hi Richie
Hope they all dry out for you by Monday.
Good tripping round the Kimberley.

Looking forward to the trip after TC

Hi Graham

I believe the roads are now drying out and should be OK by next week.

Will let you know the progress later.

Thanks to all who responded.

Richard
