Road info please.

Post by Scrubby on Thu 24 Mar 2016, 6:17 pm

G`day all,

I will be traveling to the Muster from the Far East (not the Middle East) and am thinking of going via Norseman, Leonora, Leinster, Sandstone, Paynesville on Blacktop all the way,then on the Paynsville to Cue road which I assume is dirt/gravel.
Am I correct?
What is this last section like both when dry or wet?.
This will be about mid July.
I know that I can go via Mount Magnet if necessary just a bit further that's all.
Any other suggestions welcome.

Scrubby.

Email the Mt Magnet Shire. They used to do regular road reports. Try shire@mtmagnet.wa.gov.au

That road can turn to crap with any decent rain mate-its not a lot further to go to Magnet and then up to Cue on the bitumen-if you want to do the dirt only go as far as Wondinong station and take the road to Magnet which is well maintained -it brings you out about 5 km north of Magnet on the highway to Cue -Wondinong station has great accomodation in very good shearers dongers with a top kitchen and hot showers -great couple run it -just ask for Lara-regards Dragon

There are dongers behind the pub at Sandstone and there was good food there too

Thanks Toad, Nuggethill and Purple-Dragon.
Yes I was thinking if it was a good all weather road it would save about 65 klm but that's stuff all if its going to be quicker on the bitumen through Mount Magnet.

If you are coming up via Leinster to Sandstone, check the road signs (the big yellow ones with the road condition).
It's bitumen from Sandstone to Mt Magnet and bitumen to Meeka. From Sandstone to Cue/Meekatharra it's main dirt road but can be closed depending on the amount of rain.
Better off just sticking to the bitumen.
As you are in for the muster, better to just get to Cue the safe way.
I'll send a pm to you about the sandstone/meeka road access.
