Just as an FYI.

The Macquarie, Bell and Belubula rivers are in flood at the moment and the back of Wello has been under 1.5 metres of floodwater together with a fair amount of water in and around the back of Orange etc.

I live 20 minutes from Wello so will try to keep you updated on water levels if you want as there will be a fair amount of mud but the weather looks improved if not warm next week so that will help

Was actually planning on getting to Wellington from Cumnock and the south west.
Saturday heading out via Twelve Mile, Yarrabin, Campbells Creek and Crudine.

Will do and no problems in keeping an eye out (I haven't been out 12 mile for a while - only back to riding a few months back)

FWIW, the river level site may be of interest as well

http://realtimedata.water.nsw.gov.au/water.stm

Us the menu on the left for the ideas on flows etc.

If you select Daily River Reports and then (in the case of your ride) Macquarie Basin it gives up to date information on river levels etc across a few days

To give an idea on the Macquarie, Burrendong Dam is currently increasing 5% of capacity a day (across the last three days) so there is a decent in-flow.

But definitely will keep an eye/ear out for you
