Has anyone travelled this road through Cullymara NP. I haev the Hema Outback NSW map (1999) which shows the road/track and the Desert Tracks SE (2001) which doesn't show it. Also my Magellan Tourer map doesn't show it. Just wondered if it exists and/or is navigable, appreciate thoughts, thanks, Moira

Do you mean Currawinya NP or have I misunderstood? I have only done the road from Eulo to Hungerford (very good), but if you want to ask the Ranger, they are on (07) 4655 4001

I take it you're talking about the road from Hungerford to Thargominda?

If it is it's situated just north of Hungerford and is signposted it runs along the dingo fence for a while then heads up to Thargo. It's a fairly well used road, last time I was on it it was in the same condition as the Eulo/Hungerford road and pretty good, typical outback road.

As Hughd says the ranger at Currawinya would be able to provide it's current condition I'm sure.

A stop at Currawinya waterhole and a visit to Lake Wyara and Lake Numala would be worth it as they should have some water in them if so the bird life should be plentiful.

We were in Currawinya last August.

The ranger told us that the road from near the ranger station in the national park NW to Thargo was closed.

Suggest you check with the ranger at Currawinya.

Unless you mean the road from Hungerford along the dog fence as above.
