Understand. Prefer camping but just did a couple of weeks staying in cabins / motels in mid-western NSW. Too cold to camp.

Just a thought, last time we went to Adels Grove we couldn't get in for a few days - the road was closed (too wet).

After it opened, even with a 'proper' 4WD, we were scaping our sump guard and had the electronics doing their thing to keep us moving. A couple of days later a small 2WD hatch was able to drive in.

When we left Adels Grove, we drove south toward Mt Isa. We had to wait while a 4WD was pulled out of the Gregory River after it slipped off the ford. One of the rescuers got a free bath when he walked off the wheel tracks on the ford and slipped over in 30cm deep water.

On our trip out west we kicked up dust for days on end but still managed to get bogged near Lake Cargelligo (lucky we could reverse out). There'd been no rain in that area for a couple of weeks. My claim is the dust on the mud made it look solid ...
