September is the lowest rainfall month of the year for Tibooburra. The seven day forcast has no predicted rain and max. temps of 25 to 32 degrees sunny every day.
I suggest you go to www.visitnsw.com.au and use the navigation box. Select all for the first two and then on the major towns go through the list and find tibooburra. select and enterand when it comes through you can go to climate or whatever. if you go to the accommodation section the pub should be able to tell you the track conditions, give them a ring. for a dollar phone call it's better to hear from a local for up to date info.
Hope that helps.

The weather any where can be found on Yahoo Weather site, remember the forcasters only use a crystal bowl hic.
If there is no rain and you have a half decent 4by no probs.

You wont get an argument here. Forcasts are a guide thats why I suggested he ring the pub and get it from the horses mouth instead of what some guy experienced last month. Have a nice day

We where at Innamincka and Coongie Lakes three weeks ago. The Strzelecki Track was in good condition and there was a grader working on the Coongie Lakes track on our way out. The lakes are worth the trip out . Plenty of water in them although a little lower than three years ago .Bird life very good as well.

Cannot comment on other areas as we came in from the Gammon Ranges

Sounds like the tracks could be busy. Self, wife and the 4 kids are departing tomorrow morning for 3 weeks - Broken Hill, Tibooburra, Cameron Corner, Innamincka, Coongie, Gammon and Flinders Ranges, then home to Southern Sydney. Might see some of you on the road. Safe travelling to all.

Got back last weekend from up that way, from Wentworth up the Darling , river level very low and Menindee Lakes are dry. then the hill to restock and up to Tibooburra, the corrner and up to innamincka return via Thargominda. All roads were in good condition, the old srez track had been cut up a bit after rain last month but there were plenty of bypasses around old bog holes. The road from Innamincka to Thargominda although we had some bad reports was very rocky in places was ok if you watch it. The weather was great cooler down south but had a couple of 30 deg days at Innamincka (I'm glad I took shorts unlike the missus.) Had a great time and had great weather, met some great people. Just can't believe how Bourke and Wills walked across that area and then found the amazing site of Cooper Creek. Can't wait to go back.

Best to call National Parks office at Tibooburra - they are well informed on local conditions & regualrly contact Innaminka, Cameron Corner etc re road conditions and the like.
I think this is the best time to visit the corner country from now on until the end of October - you get some warm days up to around 38 degrees on a hot day but the heat is a dry heat that is comfortable. Warmer temps allow great swimming in Cullyamurra waterhole at Innaminka.
Lived at Tibooburra for 4 years and liked this time of year the best.

PS. Try and visit the Gumval battery between Milparinka and Tibooburra (get details from Nat Pks) - fantastic remnants of the gold days and some great driving.Cheers, Beddo

Temperatures have been glorious. However, there's been a bit of a stiff Nthly wind about for the last week or so on most days. Due to rains a while back, the dust hasn't been as bad as it could've been.

Cheers

Simpson in September.......
