Hi, after a great timein the VIc Alps and Snowy Mountains we are now heading for Barrington Tops and New England area and after that the greater Bonalbo and BorderRanges NP area. Does anybody know if these areas are effected by floods, washed away bridges or other inconveniences. We would like to hear.

You should be ok, there has been a little rain in the Barrington are and more in the New England area but you should be ok.
Call in to our place as you head north we are in Dungog, can point you in the right direction over maps etc.
Was talking to Peter the other day.

We were just of New England National Park/ North of Barrinton on upper reaches of Macleay River 2 weeks ago. All fine, river was up and flowing swiftly but fine.
Armidale Council had just reopned some roads after land slips.

Can't comment north of there, especially around Glen Innes whiich had heavier rainfall. Last 2 weeks has been HOT and dry

Hi Willem,
Took a trip around the upper Clarence this past Sunday discovering the effects of recent flooding to the area with Paddy's Flat & Hooten's Flat both well & truly washed out with both bridges closed.
Yates crossing south of Tabulam is open but river flats are no longer, with severe erosion. - This once popular free camp now has one of those NO this, NO that signs - one of them being Overnight/camping [How do they get away with keeping people of crown land I don't know].
The Bonalbo - Urbenville road was also closed due to a land slip, however the contractors let us go thru as we had fourby. I would presume that it will be re-opened in a week or two at a guess.
Camping available at Tabulam race course [on banks of Clarence] - ask at pub.
Safe travels
