Can anyone please tell me if the road between these 2 towns is sealed or not as I'm planning a trip through that area on a road bike.

According to all my maps it's not. Why not ring someone up there? Cops? Pub? etc..

Old Mate,

It is not sealed and I would guess after the floods it has not been repaired.

It is also part of the Walgett Shire Rural Roads

They have it listed as open

"Open with caution on unsealed sections. Sealed section of road open."

Rural Road Number 457 at this link ;)

No it's not for most of it.
Can be done @ 100kim/hr (daylight) even in a car unless it has rained and trucks have cut deep ruts in the road, then you need to slow down.
I do it a couple of times a year normally @ 100km/hr in a 4WD, have done it in sedans.

Hasn't rained heavily since Feb.

I'm not a bike rider, but I would have no qualms at all @ 60-80/km/hr on a road bike. Talk to the police at either end, I'd be more concerned about stock & roos on the road than anything else.

It's a good piece of mainly dirt road and with the usual care can be traversed very easily on a bike. I traveled it last September. The seal returns at either end.
