Hello Truckster. You can certainly do it in a day up and a day back. We came back in a day - the roads are very good. Only thing that'll prevent you doing it is rain because the roads quickly become impassable and are closed to traffic. Hefty fine for trying to go on them once closed too - somewhere around $1,000.00 per wheel I think.

Truckster,

Just talking in town (Broken Hill) today to a guy who went to Tib for the weekend and he said the road is as rough as guts at the moment. last I was up that way was Oct and it was bad then. No rain means no grader and that mens it must be worse.

Normally I would allow about 4- 5hrs to the Corner from BH but if the road is bad that could be a bit longer. Most here reckon 10hrs to Melb.

If you go check out Milparinka along the way.

Have fun
Duncs.

Well you have the answers to Cameron Corner - you should do the alternative route from Tib to the corner via Mt Wood, Olive Downs and Middle Road to Fort Grey. Good scenic drive !
Also there is a good drive between Tib and Milparinka thru the Gumvale Gorge and Gumvale gold battery. Call NPWS at Tibooburra for details on the above - plus they can tell you exactly what the road conditions are like at present.Cheers, Beddo
