Hi,
Thinking of going to Camerons Corner from Tiboorburra then on to Innaminka along the Strezleki in late August 2014. Is this a 1 day trip? Maps indicate about 15 hours, 400+klms
Troopy and a Range Rover
Any advice would be appreciated.
Regards
Mal

Very much a one day trip in my view (but these days, I find any excuse to take longer) - you'd have time to stop and dawdle about at some of the points of interest along the way.

Hi Mal,
Do you have to do it in a day? It is doable but why not stay a night at Cameron Corner. We did that same trip in 2012, spent the morning having a look around Tibooburra & the Nat Park to the East, had lunch & set off for the Corner. We had a great night at the Corner Pub with a good meal. We wouldn't pass through again without staying a night. It was then an easy day to Innaminka with time to have a look around some of the point of interest there.
Cheers.

The other way, straight up from Tib via Orientos around to Ina is a pretty good run also Mal.

Our recent trip took 4:53 min average speed 65kmh for the 317 km run.

Mal,
It's 390km via the Old Strezlecki Tk so it should be a ok. I was towing a full height van and averaging 40+kph. Last time we went to Innamincka via Lyndhurst on the (new) Strezlecki Tk and it was closed due to rain, so we were held up for a couple of days.

Enjoy the trip,

Bill

Mal,
I totally agree with Darian and others, if you have time to spare, don't rush it.

Cheers,
Bill

A full height van? Longish too?

How was the road condition? I often look at those trips but am put off by taking the van (4 metre Windsor poptop) over poor roads.

BillB,
It's a 5 metre off road van. The roads are variable depending on the grader. One trip I had a big dust storm and huge head winds into Innamincka. Sometimes the rocks on the road were large, last year they were normal size, no tyre problems. The Old Strezlecki is quite smooth and more of a track than a dirt road. I think corrugations are the biggest caravan killer and I never found them too bad.
Only damage was once my AC motor vibrated off, which I have now modified and fitted lock nuts to.

Cheers,
Bill

If you go through Cameron's Corner you owe it to yourself to stay a night, have a meal and visit the bar. Won't try to explain here..... just take my word for it.
Cheers

In 2010, we did the Corner Country. Stayed a night at Dead Horse Gully, just north of Tib. When then travelled the top road to Fort Grey.Fort Grey was beautiful and there was water in Lake Pinaroo. We then took a day to travel to Innamincka.

We took our time as there was much to see and do

I said same thing to some one else who is planning this trip check out the road closures just before we have had a number of big wet days here and all dirt roads around Broken hill to Tiboorburra are closed

The sun is out now for a little while that will dry the road out and open the roads

5 mm of precip can close some of those roads. Always go with a plan B. We spent a day waiting by pootling around Sturt NP outside of Tib. Well worth it.
