Evening all,

I need to take the gooseneck from the Yass area down to Nowra (and back) and was wondering what the best way was?

Is it best to go to Braidwood and then over to Nerriga, or go to Tarago and then Nerriga?

thanks

Russell

The shortest way is the Hume to Sutton Forest then cut across through Kangaroo Valley. Nowra to Nerriga is a nice new road but it's gravel in parts between Nerriga and Braidwood. I haven't done via Tarago.

From Canberra - the way to go is via Nerriga etc but from Yass as Mike suggests - it is shorter to go straight up the Hume, through Moss Vale, Kanga Valley etc

If by Goose neck he means a fifth wheeler it will be a bit tight going through Kangaroo Valley.
Cheers Dave.

Semis and other big trucks do it so a 5th wheeler would have few issues - really no more than any large caravan.

Yes I know about the trucks going through there, I carted Glucose out of Manildra through there and seen lots of accidents between trucks and cars. It was always a relief to get over to the Hume and head for Melbourne.

Yeh, the same as a 23 foot 5th wheeler. Just add a moving horse in the back and you have instant fun.....

I've been up and down Kangaroo Valley heaps of times in cars. I wouldn't like to drag the gooseneck down there though. Just my thoughts.

I'll give the Tarago to Nerriga road a go and let all know how it turns out.

You could always run down to Batemans Bay on the Kings Hwy then up to Nowra.

If you go Tarago then Nerriga you will have approx 5 km's dirt road (if that) and then the low level crossing over the Shoalhaven river (single lane and closed if river is up). If you get to the river and crossing is closed then you will not be able to turn around and will have to master reversing up hill and around narrow blind corners.

Road from Braidwood to Nerriga would be fine if you don't value your van or have a week to transverse slowly. :)

Kangaroo valley would be the easiest way as long as you take it easy and watch for trucks at the eastern exit of the valley prior to heading down to the coast proper (bad corner), given this though as other have said many a truck and van transverse this road and do so without incident

The best way would be Tarago to Nerriga. There is very little dirt road left, approx 5kms. And although we have had rain recently the crossing is under the road. You could also call in to or ring the Braidwood police station or ring the Nerriga pub for up to date info on the crossing.

Thanks all for the info. Very helpful.

We'll go Tarago to Nerriga, and give the pub a ring before we go.

cheers
