Road closures NE NSW

Anyone travelling this area, should check the RTA/police beforhand.

The heavy rain/floods from last week have knocked out several roads/tracks.

Went to do the Gwydir Hwy from Glen Innes to Grafton on the Old Convict Rd. Both the tar and dirt roads are closed. Had to head to Tenterfield

Will try the dirt from Tabulam via Baryulgil to Grafton tomorrow, if blocked return, then go via Casino

Yeh, and all the QLD water heading your way as well. The Murray won't know what hit it.

Nope, its back to normal (hopfully)
Our Murray only gets the water from Darling at Wentworth, should ensure the mouth of the Murray stays opened.

It should be gone well past Bourke by then, it's about a week away now. Luckily the Paroo catchment didn't get the same as the Condamine or the Barwon.

Moving fairly quick then, won't take much to bump the levels up with any rain between now & then though
