Arumpo Road & Balranald Road

Condition Report

•  Balranald Road Condition Report

•  Arumpo Road Condition Report

We journey to the park regularly each week on the unsealed roads and are experienced in reading their constant changing of conditions. In dry conditions dust is always a major problem and as the road is shared with large haul trucks it is paramount that you stay alert to navigate sometimes difficult conditions.  On a good day most people can navigate the unsealed roads but in wet conditions roads quickly become dangerous which is when you appreciate the skilled driving of someone who knows the road inside out. Arumpo, Top Hut and Balranald roads will quickly close after rain events which make the park inaccessible.

Mungo National Park will also close if wet conditions make it unsafe to visit. We make a promise to our participants that no matter what the conditions are that if we can safely travel to the park to explore we most certainly will. We closely monitor the changing weather conditions so if any tour is at risk of not proceeding you will be notified in advance, with as much warning as possible.
