I must have missed it previous trips.
I haven't worked out which way to go yet. There must be scenery somewhere. There is ALWAYS scenery!
Does your route take you past the Warrumbungles?
Dunno. It would probably help if l got a map before starting out. Today's job.
You'll get to see lots of water in places there isn't normally water (including in the middle of the road in some bits - keep an eye on the road reports, although when I last looked the only bit which was closed was just out of Narrandera and that bit has only a short detour).
Well l'm on my way and it's been very wet so far. Lots of water, rain and everything very green. I had to turn off the cruise control as the car was slipping a lot on the at roads. I might have to cocede defeat and re-evaluate my plan to camp tonight.
I take all that back. I drove to Gundagai and then cut over to Cootamundra. Big mistake - directed by council workers to drive through fast flowing floodwaters. From there, there was no return and l had to cross 4 more creeks. Don't know how much longer this route will be open but don't recommend it.
WHAT!!!!! be careful - council workers???? Glad you have enough sense to know what's what.
Assuming you're referring to the Coolac-Cootamundra road, it's now listed as closed. The Newell itself is also closed to light vehicles between Forbes and West Wyalong.
Yes, that road. I'm sticking to main roads now as the smaller ones are going to be a gamble. No more heart palpitations. I've made it to Wellington (and one could be tempted to think the boots were named after this place). I'm staying in a motel and am starting to be very sorry that l've planned to camp for the full extent of the carnival.
NB. Passed through Cudal, on the aptly named 'Escort Highway' but didn't stop so nothing happened :)
Cudal is also the 'home of the platypus', which is better than Young, which is the 'home of the prune'.
NB. Lots of unmarked road damage (ie potholes), the whole way.
Both of those are probably better than Augathella, which is the 'home of the meat ant' (there's even a Meat Ant Park, which sounds a less than appealing place for a picnic).
PrueD - have you usurped blair in the travel reporting field??
No. Definitely not. He is the undisputed best at that.
