Can someone tell me if this road is sealed or not?

I'm guessing no but thought I would ask.

I suppose either way it would be fairly wet out there?

Hungerford / Eulo isn't, but there might be sections of Bourke / Hungerford that have been (can't remember). I'll be travelling that way at the end of the month.

Cheers, The Landy

Once you leave Bourke and get off the black top about 10k's the Only sealed section is in the Village of Fords Bridge.


I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

Can't speak for Burke to Hungerford, but Hungerford to Eulo is dirt.

Couple of years since I went on it but has been a decent road all the trips I have done. No corrugations from memory. Been in Parol, Commodore and Falcon with no problems. They were work vehicles, so not that I cared too much about hiting the odd pothole.

Came across the biggest Mulga Snake I have ever seen on that road. Would have been over two metres (that's my story anyway). Got out 'n checked him out for about 10 mins before he bothered to slither away.

Don't think the wet should be any worry by now.

Road from Hungerford to Thargominda should be reasonable. I only ever went on the old road through Baroona Station and that was always pretty good, so the new road should be alright. Just go slow in case you come across a hidden washout.

The road from Hungerford to Thargo is good and has an excellent station stay on it called Kilcowera Station. Have a good trip, gecko.

Hi I also traveled this road several years ago in a Falcon outback ute, Good dirt road all the way. The road from Ford's Bridge to the Mitchell HWY was Very heavy sand though.

Lets Us know whatb the road conditions were like as I am thinking of going back that way in Sept.

Thanks to all for info. Sorry to others who want a road report but I have decided to give it a miss.

Certainly doesn't seem to be a road for a motorhome!
