depends on amount of rain in the weeks before. current rain would dry out but it wont take as much closer to date to top up dampness in soil.

hi garri
as hyden has only recorded low rainfall so far this month but that could change in next 24 hrs and into late june and early july
the track might be ok as of today but it only takes one good rain to turn the holland track into a gooey slipery mess with water filled bogholes
as the grey clay and red stuff out there can change rapidly from dust to very sticky and there are quite a few deep wheel track sections and bog holes that fill with water from it running down the long slopes to the valleys

the best thing to do is make a ph call to the hyden garage
or the manager at the wave rock caravan pk ph 98805022 and they will usually always know if the track has been closed and/or if someone has come or gone through
its all in the lap of the rain gods as to whether the weather will permit your travel
if you havent got one a copy of the book -explore the holland track - it has all the imfo and history gps/
waypts and trip notes and includes wave hill woodlines details as well and is worth the $12 costmost news agents keep it or 4wd outlets

Kondinin Shire have been closing roads east of Hyden and many are up for review at 9am tomorrow. On this basis one would think the Holland Track may be a little boggy.

Speak to the shire.


Holland track is often closed in the wet months, and TLC don't encourage the use during these months. The track gets severely wrecked when it's wet.
