Comment: Corner Country

I am new to this we wish to travel from Adel- Broken Hill then Cameron Cnr then onwards to Noccundra Hotel. What is the best way to do this if we go to C/Cnr do we have to backtrack or can we deviate from there to maintain our route to Noccundra? Any help would be appreciated we are planning to leave from Adelaide about the 10th Oct for two weeks then from Noccundra onwards to Innamincka & Flinders Ranges back to Adelaide. Does this sound feasible?

Hi Jackson,

To save any backtracking you could head north west out of Tibooburra and go through the Sturt NP (Waka and Fort Grey) to Cameron Corner. After your visit to Cameron Corner head north east on the track that goes through Omicron and joins the Noccundra Wari Gate Rd just south of Naryilco Station. From Innamincka just head down the Strzelecki Track to the Flinders Ranges

I wouldn't drive far out of my way just to go to Noccundra - there's bugger all there. I don't think they even sell petrol anymore.

Consider going from Cameron Cnr direct to Innamincka. If the Bore Track is still open that is a really nice drive.

If you really want to go to Noccundra perhaps go Broken Hill - Tibooburra - Noccundra - Innamincka - Cameron Cnr - Flinders, but you'll still be back-tracking to get to CC & back. Worth checking out the Dig Tree on Nappa Merrie while you are in the area as well.

I've gone out of my way to visit Noccundra and I'd do it again.

There's a pub there for starters - worth going for that - and camping on the Wilson is a good past time as well.

Hi Jackson,

We've been planning to do the same trip commencing last week in August & going via the route detailed in the reply above.

All this rain is throwing our plans into doubt though. We may end up going later when it dries out a bit & the roads are all open.

Its definitely feasible in the time frame you've got if the weather improves & the roads remain open.

Happy travels!

Kevin :=)

Ah, I was too slow posting my reply; just to clarify, we're planning on going the way Chris suggested above.
