Hi all,
expect to be at Walkers Crossing approx. 10 September. Can anyone advise if the road is passable at the moment and also if the Coongie Lakes road is open.
Thanks in advance.

Bob,
I thought at this stage Walkers Crossing may be passable but obviously not. Guess we'll have to do the Cordillo Road. Coongie Lakes was always doubtful but you never know, things can change fairly quickly.
Thanks for your input.

Never been down the Walker's Crossing road, DB, but after over 20 years living on the Diamantina, do know it takes a long time for flooded country to dry out, especially during winter. Once the furnace weather rocks up, it's a different story!!!

And the further south you go, towards Lake Eyre, the later in the year before it all dries out. Will be worth checking again, closer to 10/09, in case it does open.

Enjoy it all anyway, lucky bugger,

Bob.

Thanks Bob,
worst past of the trip will be the dual Nullarbor crossings but will enjoy the trip anyway.
