I haven't been up there lately but a mate was up there a couple of weeks ago on there four wheelers (motor bike) and said it was dry and easy to pass through.
Shouldn't be any problems as we haven't had any rain for a while.

We are heading up there in 3 weeks time just for a day trip so sure to find out myself.

Kev.

It's only been reopened in the last few weeks and a mate said it's the worst he's seen it for some years. He had to rescue some clowns while it was shut too and apparently it's pretty ripped up with no maintenance expected for some some time. We pulled out of our trip because of this. Cheers.

went up the creb track at easter, no problems we had a rodeo a troopy and me with a patrol towing a camper trailer never even looked like getting into trouble, the road will not be maintained from now on as the power line has been relocated and will use choppers for maintainance. The turn off to the roaring meg now has a ranger station on the corner. you will have no problems getting through, well worth the effort. Col
