We went in over Larrys Mountain road, up the Araluen Rd, then across Dry Ck and up Merricubene FT today - no sign of any roads closed that way. We didn't go down into Bendethera but that was only because we had run out of time. There weren't any signs to indicate anything was closed - including at the start of Bendethera FT.

The water at Dry creek crossing was up to the top of the cruisers rims. The crossing looked a lot different from last time I'd been there - seemed to be a lot more sand on the bottom but it was still good and solid.

Merricubene FT is in pretty good condition, and the road from Bendethera trig out to Moruya is as good as you'll ever see it.

Deua NP is closed.

You may find this a good site to add to your favourites.

Fires, floods and park closures

Scroll down and find the NP you want and then click on the "Show Details" button n the right.

No worries Dave

I recently planned a family group trip up to Cape York and noticed the proliferation of sites claiming to have the latest access status. Most of them wrong. I ended up talking to the engineer at Cook Council and he gave me the info.

So when I find one that appears to be an official one I save it. Apologies to the this site's road status page organiser but yours can be out of date as well. It was according to the data we got from Cook Council immediately before we went to the Cape. And as we do not carry any computer in the car (thank god) it was imperative that we had the latest info when we left home.

This is the only one that I know I rely on as we have only been in the parks included in the list since the Cape trip. Still looking for the others. Its a trait of a lot of Government offices and of course private site managers. They all think that their site is the "official" one and of course the easiest and best to use. Just human nature.

Glad to see it is of use.

We always check before we go anywhere for the latest closures. I know that people will argue that "no sign = not closed". That may be true but imagine being on the Bridal track with a trailer and you come around the bend to where that huge rock is, totally blocking the road. And you cannot back up it too narrow. Interesting recovery that one. May need a big bank balance.


PS. Sorry about the waffling on here. Too much time on my hand. I need a trip!!!!!

Parks hope to have Bendethra open by Easter. Bit late for me.
