Hi,
Is either side significantly better than the other? We will be travelling in June/July, two 4WDs with off road CTs.
Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If its dry you can cruise at 100kmh. Open plains country. Have done western side from Wilcannia to Tilpa and eastern side further north. Pretty easy driving.

Jon, either side as good as the other, both nice drives. Went west side in May , east side in late Dec. Plenty of water in the Darling at present and should be for a while

Hi Joh
Just did Tilpa to Wili a coulpe of weeks ago,western side. Great to see the Darling flowing. We are both good swimmers but dispite it being 47c in the shade we didn't dare get in the river due to the flow.
Say hello to Tony & Jill from Bernadette and Lyndon for us. We enjoyed our 2 nights in the pub(with the sheep)
Great steaks,great people! We will be back!
Get info on the area as lots of the properties now have (cheap) farm stays.
Oh, we took the western side.
Cheers

Hi Jon,

We did the 400Ks from Bourke-Tilpa-Willcania it was a great trip but we did the western side a yr ago as the eastern was closed. Just watch speed when approaching the stock grids. My husband is from Broken Hill and has spent alot of time out on that road visiting family and Pig shooting.

Thanks folks. Seems like the best thing to do will be to make a decision based on the weather when we get to Tilpa or toss a coin. Thanks.
