All major roads are sealed, however driving at night isn't recommended unless you are an experienced driver due to the increased activity of wildlife on or near the roads between sunset and sunrise, most notably Kangaroos. Some people
have experienced mild to severe damage to their cars for this reason.
All unsealed roads are usually closed after rain. Please contact the
Council for the latest road condition information.
Drivers who are unfamiliar with driving in the regional areas of Australia should also be aware of cattle grids that are scattered along country roads.
