Hi Budge 1

sorry i can't help with road conditions,
when we go to Mildura we stay at Buronga riverside caravan park( think spelling is correct) just over the bridge on the left hand side as you cross the NSW border. Its right on the river bank, management are really friendly and helpful, plus the amenities are clean and modern.
Its also within a easy drive to Mungo NP if the roads are open

have a great trip

Hi Darren,
I'm not sure which way you are coming from but the Murray Valley Hwy between Cohuna and Kerang is still closed but you can detour via Koondrook.
If you are coming from Bendigo direction, the Loddon Valley Hwy is open to Kerang. There are a few spots between Kerang and Swan Hill have a little bit of water on them or being fixed due to the floods. I was up that way yesterday and you would have no problems getting to Swan Hill but I'm not sure about any further towards Mungo as there have been a lot of storms in this area during the last few days. I would imagine that you could get through alright from the Swan Hill end but would check with the locals before venturing out.
Enjoy your trip,

Hi Budge 1

I would think twice as the mozzie situation is quite serious and the cases of Ross River Fever have exploded. They are trying to play it down so not to scare tourists off, but it is bad.
there was an artical in the Mildura paper last week where they quoted one family with 3 memebers whom had ALL caught it.

Sorry for the dampener but i would not take the risk, make a different plan for the next 12 months perhaps?
