For those who have done the Sydney to Perisher journey already, are the roads and motorways (outside of Sydney) potholey?

The Hume is not a problem, but Canberra -> South to Jindy is sketchy in places, but pretty well marked, although fast at nighttime wouldn't be advised.

This ... Cooma - Jindy is pretty borked with quite a few sections of roadworks and patching. Berridale - Jindy is quite slick especially East Jindy into Jindy.

Jindy to the resorts is in good condition.

The pot holes are generally contained to the car parks.

Wildlife is of a greater concern, especially if you drive during dawn, dusk or at night.

Lost another vehicle on the stretch between Berridale and Jindabyne on the weekend. She was a good ute too. Mrs was mighty pissed off that she had to come and pick me up. Then she nearly drove into the same pothole.

Lesson is - if you've lost one vehicle to the pothole, stand a bit away from the pothole when waiting for your lift.

We’re starting our trip down in another week. We live on a peninsula, and the 12km long access road is always covered in potholes no matter how recently resurfacing/relaying work has been done. We’ve got to dodge all those potholes first before we think about dodging anything south of Canberra.
