Marble Bar - The Wet Unleashed.
Trip Start Feb 01, 2005

After having fantastic sausage rolls at Pardo roadhouse, we reached Marble Bar, the hottest town in Australia, with no problems and only minor river crossings, but found out when we got to town that the road had closed behind us, as flood waters from the catchments area had swollen the river dramatically in a matter of minutes. This is the harshness of the wet. We had experienced no rain at all and so had not been concerned.
We decided to make a run south through Nullagine to Newman and set off.
