Vic: you don't say where you are coming from! sorry but it makes a difference! If you mean travelling along the fence from say Warri gate to Cameron's Corner I don't think you need any 'permission' I met the grazier from that area at the gate in June (2001) and he was travelling that way and being the type of bloke you would expect to meet- just go !

Vince, We have just returned from a trip in that area and drove the Dingo Fence from Hungerford to Hamilton Gate approx 110 klms. This is a gazetted road. We did read a notice in Wannaring that explained the organization that controls the Dingo fence had closed the fence to all private & commercial operators due to the number of head-on accidents. They mentioned they had left a 35klm sectioned open to the public on the NSW/SA border.

vince, from your return email it appears that you intend to turn off the dingo fence near Waverley Gate and head to Moombidary and then on to Bulloo Downs. I personally would continue along the fence to Hamilton Gate as i found the section from Waverley Gate to Hamilton as the more enjoyable drive. I would consider turning north from near Hamilton Gate and heading up from there. Once leaving Hungeford you have quite a few klms before you are actually on the fence and you would only travel approx 40 klms to Waverley Gate along the fence line. Hence our reason for going on to Hamilton. As far as the condition of the roads in that area i am not too sure, the fence was good and we crossed into nsw and the road to Waanaring was in good condition. On our return trip from Innamincka we came through Epsilon to Santos and across to Bransby and found these roads were also in good condition.I imagine all the tracks in that area are pretty much the same.We used the Hema Outback New South Wales map and found it to be very accurate. Have fun and enjoy yourself.
