Road conditions Corner Country

Hi,

I am heading out to the corner country next week in a Jimny and was wondering what the road conditions are like.

To give some idea of the route i'm travelling - Goondiwindi - Walgett - Bourke - Tibooburra - Camerons Corner - Innamincka - Birdsville - Windorah (then making my back down to travel along the warrego)

I am not too concerned about the unsealed roads - i'm more concerned about whether there is a lot of water around that area - thus making the roads boggy and an alternate route worth a look..

If anyone has travelled it fairly recently can give me some idea that would be great!

also, i have seen that there is unleaded in Tibooburra, Camerons Corner, Innamincka is this correct? (I've got a small tank so have to work out the number of jerries to take)

thanks in advance.

Zook, can't help with recent road conditions but you are correct that there is ULP in the 3 places you mentioned, also Birdsville.

Cheers,

Came via Merty Merty, Cameron Corner, Middle Road (Sturt NP) to Warri Gate on Easter Sunday.
There was some water about, but nothing that would give any grif and it would be gone by now.

From Wanaaring west you will be in the Unincorporated Region of N.S.W. That means that there is no local government, and the roads are maintained by the RTA. So local politics don't play any part in road conditions. This being the tourist season they do their utmost to keep the main roads in as good a condition as the weather & traffic will allow.

Unless there is wet weather, and you can check the condition of the 'Cut Line' at Bourke, it's usually in a good state until you get to Tibooburra. From there to Cameron's Corner it is at present crook, though quite trafficable. Just drive according to conditions.

S.A. & Qld. road conditions, I can't help with.

The local cops should know, also the RTA have a recorded daily advice. Call 131701 & take option 3.
