Please be aware that the Willowra road is impassable 55km from the community, due to water over the road.

“The rain started falling just as I got there,” said Ray Hocking, who took the video. “That’s as far as I got!”

“The road also has several washouts closer to Willowra so take care once the road opens again,” he added.
