Hi all, Does anyone know whether the Barry Way from Bucchan to Jindabyne via Suggan Buggan is fit for a 2WD during the summer months?

We went down that way last year during the bushfires as the Alpine Way was closed. It was nice and scenic but two kids spewing in the back took a little bit of the shine off the trip!! The road was very good quality dirt and even in the wet would be pretty easy for a 2wd. The snowy river had a bit more flow and the road pretty much follows the course of the river. Great photo opportunities. Just make sure you have a couple of icecream containers if you have kids as there are hours of curves and twists and turns and then.......yuk

Also I would recommend stopping for a pie in Buchan. There is a hippie type looking shop that make their own pies and stuff and as it was well past the curves, had to put something back in the kids tummies. If you are heading north though - it might be a good thing to miss!!

Andrew,
Use plastic bags as they absorb the velocity. Ice cream containers splash over the back of your neck when you are driving.

Yuk - now that would really upset me - the smell was bad enough. Plastic bag is easy to store in the car all the time but an icecream container is never there when you want it. Thanks for the tip.

what dya think those pockets on the back of the seats are for? just connect a tube to the bottom and vent it to the external extremities of the vehicle, of course you would have to flush the things out every week or soLaterally Literal

It's a great drive, 4 or 2wd. Take it easy at the many blind corners. Beats the hell out of travelling the boring H/h'way. We have camped down that way a couple of times at the Pinch River camp area, good spot and really Aussie.Carpe Diem
