Hey guys

heading up to the birdsville for the race but was planning on going through Innamincka and Cordillo Downs. The road between Innamincka and cordillo down has been closed for a while now. Just wondering if the road is heavily damaged or its just waiting for the rain to stop and road to dry up.

The 28 day rainfall forecast suggest not much more rain, if none.

Just seeing if anyones talked to anyone up there or has been that way.

Cheers Kev

A mate of mine came through there 2 weeks ago when it was open just before he got stuck in Innaminka for a week. It was not heavily damaged then.

Regards

Hi Kevin C,
We travelled the cordillo downs road in 2000 towing a non off road trailer.Rocks rocks and more rocks. 6,8,& 10". It took us ages but we made it. No vehicle injuries
A tour group came in to camp at Birdsville many vehicles had shredded tyres!
When I suggested that they probably had driven too fast on it.....I was very unpopular.
It may have been graded since as the shearing shed is a popular tourist place.
Take care, safe travels. Ma.

G'day KevinC, Read Thread 80514 & the S A Desert Road Conditions in this Forum. The last posting was 5/8 regarding Birdsville Track conditions & ferry services. A more updated version than 10 years ago!!!

Thanks guys for the advice, i just wanted to make sure that providing there was no rain, i could almost bank most of trip on one course. But i know with all travel its not always possible.

Thanks for the updates guys.
