WHAT ARE ROAD CONDITIONS LIKE TO WEE JASPER?

All roads to Careys Cave from Yass and Canberra are sealed except for a few short sections as detailed below.
Travel times are approximate for reasonable speed in a car - add whatever you reckon for a coach.

There are two viable options from Canberra for coaches, depending on where you start from:  
Route 1, via Yass, is the easier if you are on the north side.  
Route 2, via Uriarra Crossing then Mountain Creek Rd, is shorter if you are near the western or southern side.   
14.5 metre coaches can negotiate all curves on road.

CANBERRA & YASS TO CAREYS CAVE

YASS TO WEE JASPER :      Travel time approx 50 mins
                                                        Sealed all the way from Yass to  Wee Jasper
Note winding road down to Murrumbidgee River then down into Wee Jasper valley.  Allow time for slower travel,
perhaps even a short stop at the southern end of Taemas bridge for a photo opportunity of the mighty Murrumbidgee may also save having to hose the coach out.

CANBERRA TO WEE JASPER VIA YASS:   Travel time from Canberra Visitors' Centre approx 1hr 45min


CANBERRA TO WEE JASPER VIA URIARRA     Travel time from Weston Creek approx 1hr 15min

MOBILE PHONE COVERAGE:  Next G OK as far as the descent to the Murrumbidgee River.  Then a few spots                                                        work about 15kms from Wee Jasper. No coverage in the Wee Jasper Valley.
                                                
We have a landline at Careys Cave that you are welcome to use if necessary.


TUMUT & GUNDAGAI TO CAREYS CAVE

Travel direct to Wee Jasper from Tumut or Gundagai is not advised with a full coach or large caravan
due to narrower winding road near Wee Jasper, although it has been done.  

Not a problem with smaller (say 22 seater) units with due care taken.
Passenger vehicles regularly travel this road, some people love the trip through the bush, others don't
because of the gravel.  Four-wheel drive is not necessary except in extreme ongoing wet conditions or snow. 

TUMUT TO WEE JASPER:            Travel time by car approx 1 1/2 hours.
       VIA BILLO RD                                   Unsealed 35 km stretch from Billo Rd to Wee Jasper.

GUNDAGAI TO WEE JASPER:      Travel time approx 1 1/2 hours.
   VIA ADJUNGBILLY RD                     Unsealed 28 km stretch from 3 Ways to Wee Jasper

MOBILE PHONE COVERAGE:       Generally patchy (even with next G), some areas ok at higher sections of road.
