With the floodwaters making their way down the Darling River the road south of us through Tilpa to Wilcannia (both sides of the river) is now ’out of action’ so please don’t try and wing it! Roads to Trilby Station from Bourke, Louth, Cobar and Wanaaring way, (the main roads I’ve highlighted on this map are open, and anywhere from the north, east or west actually)are fine and it’s business as usual for us. The full river is looking amazing here… and you should see the bird life!
