My wife and I are planning a trip and are wondering what the road is like from Menindee to Ivanhoe, and also the turn off from Darnick heading south to Pooncarie or Mungo ?

See that the Menindee to Pooncarie road is currently closed and unlikely to be open soon.

Hoping some one can help.

I drove up the Pooncarie to Menindee road last week. I went to as far as possible which was about 20km short of Menindee. The road is completely cut by an enormous wash out. The road crews were there and working on it but as you say it will be a while before they open the road. I spent 2 days camping on the Darling near Harcourt Station and saw 2 vehicles over the entire time.

Hi Skip,

Thanks mate... Yes.. I thought that would be the case... This is why I am hunting for information on the Menindee Ivanhoe Road and also the south turn from Darnik to Mungo.

Basically we need to get to Menindee to Mungo N.P.
