    Just wondering if the gate is still locked on the border crossing? Cheers Ian

    The only roads through the border open around hereish are Killarney - Legume & Mount Lindesay Highway south of Rathdowney. Been through both crossings in recent weeks.
    Lions Road border is also still closed.

    Do they have border controls in place at those crossings?

    The gate is still locked, I head out there every couple of weeks, don't live too far away. There is a sign that says the border is closed between 7am and 7pm - one of these days I'll get up early and see if there's a manned checkpoint before 7am.

    I tried riding through there when the border bubble first came in, the gate has one of those keypad locks on it, rang the number on that sign and was told the gate only opens by a local farmer to take his stock through!
    Anyhow not wanting to back track all the way around we were able to ride along Hardcastle Road and find our way over to Spring Creek Road, there certainly is some funky terrain through there!

    Wow I can imagine. I didn't know it was possible to get through. If Hardcastle road is the one I'm thinking of, I remember turning around after getting a distinct feeling I'd soon end up at someone's house, featuring a shotgun and banjo music.
