Wherever you're travelling from and travelling to, driving in North Queensland is an unforgettable experience and here at Etheridge Shire Council, we're committed to providing you with up to date information on road conditions within the Shire.  During the wet season (December to March) road conditions can be updated several times throughout the day so watch the website for the latest report.

Current Road Conditions Report

To make the most of your road trip we ask that you stay vigilant and drive with safety as your number one priority.

Local tips:

  • If it's flooded don't even chance it.
  • Where possible travel during the day to avoid the kangaroos.
  • If you are on a single lane stretch of road and a large heavy vehicle is coming the other way, pull over to beside the road to let them pass (this includes vehicles carrying stock such as smaller cattle trucks & horse floats). It's a lot safer and easier for you to slow down and get off the road than it is for them.
