The McKinlay Shire Council has issued a warning to all travelers, particularity those who are playing in the Goldfield Ashes.
Flash flooding has occurred between Prairie and Torrens Creek, resulting in the closure of the Flinders Highway in that area.
"Stay safe this Australia Day, and remember; if it's flooded, forget it," a spokesperson for McKinlay Shire Council said.
During the wet season, road conditions can change at any time, without notice.
