CAMERON CORNER STORE: FENN MILLER

“It was our birthday celebration last weekend which saw a decent crowd. The weather has been a bit overcast, and rain is promised but we would be lucky to see any here. Would have been nice as it has been dry, and the days are quite warm. The roads are good at the moment, but the trip to Cameron Corner is fairly corrugated. Avoid the New Strzelecki Track still, and keep to the Old Strzelecki, which is even suitable for caravans. The New Strzelecki is far to washed out and corrugated.”

BIRDSVILLE ROADHOUSE: PETER BARNES

“Things are nice and dry here currently. Having said that the Inside Track is still closed as there is still plenty of water about. Everything else is open, and most travellers are reporting excellent road conditions; you can’t please everyone, though. The grader has come through for its once-a-year pass, so there is no time like now to get up here.”

ARCHER RIVER ROADHOUSE: BRAD ALLAN

“The Peninsula Developmental Road to Bamaga is open and in good condition, as is access to the Lockhart River. The roads are actually great up here, thanks to the below average rain we had this season. We aren’t expecting any more rain, and it is already pretty dry up here, and the tourists are starting to flow through thick and fast. The road to Vrilya Point remains closed, and will for the whole 2015 dry season as the bridge over Crystal Creek has been damaged.”
