Hoping to do this trip soon - Tips?

Discussion in 'Roads, Touring, Journeys, and Travel' started by fozzy, Apr 13, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    I'm hoping to take a few days off later this week and head of on a bit of a trip before winter sets in


    Any tips or roads I must do that I haven't included? Also keen to hear about camping spots and things to see along the way...

    Or, if you have a better idea for a much better route lemme know...

    Cheers! Foz.

    It's a long time since I've travelled between Denman and Dubbo by that route, but as I remember the road, especially between Merriwa and Dunedoo, was not tar-sealed.
  3. Hmmm, that changes things a bit! Can anyone confirm or deny this?
  4. I suggest you contact the RTA and ask for a road condition report, and if they tell you that it IS dirt but in good condition, I wouldn't let that change your plans. I think it's a great loop, and I'd love to be doing it; how many days are you planning on taking?
  5. 3 or 4 - Wanna come? :grin:
  6. Merriwa Duneedoo

    It's all tar mate, its good road. Watch for cops from Duneedoo onwards to Dubbo though.
