We are thinking of heading to Cameron Corner from Sydney and would like peoples advice on which way would be best to go. Do we just head out via Dubbo, Nyngan, Cobar and then up to Cameron Corner? Or would you head up via Burke or Lightening Ridge or Broken Hill even?

We have been to most places we would travel through, other than Cameron Corner, so more interested in your experiences as to the more scenic or best 4WD route, rather than the actual towns to visit. And realistically, how long would you feel that we would need for a return trip?

Other issue is whether to take the dogs with us or not, does anyone know what the camping situation would be travelling this route, eg would need to steer clear of national parks if the dogs were with us

There is a report on the Caravaners Forum in reference to your trip.

We went from Broken Hill to Milparinka and then through Tibbooburra and Cameron Corner to Innaminka. If you haven't already been there Milparinka has a good camping area on the 'lower' level. The meals at the Pub are first class. If you are into history, Depot Glen and Pooles grave is not far away.
The road from Tibooburra to Cameron Corner runs through the Sturt National Park.

We frequently use the following route to the Corner Country from Sydney.

Sydney > Nyngan > Cobar > North to Louth > Wanaaring > Tibooburra > Cameron Corner.

Louth is a great place to stopover at, either on the banks of the Darling near the pub, or you could head out to Trilby Station (20 kilometres) and enjoy Liz and Gary’s company.

You will be on dirt about 30-kilometres north of Cobar.

Enjoy,

Agree this is a nice route to take, alternately head up to Bourke via Nyngan then out through Wanaaring

I always go one way and come home another. Next time I'm going through White Cliffs either on the way there or the way back. :-)

Yes we will probably look at going one way and home another. Thinking of going to White Cliffs, that's one place we've never been to along that route, may need to make time for a visit!

Hi there. Would recommended the north route (up from Tibooburra) in the Sturt National Park, over the main route. Beautiful jump up country

Hi, there are a few ways to go.
I usually get a map out and mark all the roads Ive traveled along the intended route and if possible go on a road I have not travelled on before.
My preference would be Cobar, White cliffs onto Milparinka and then the corner.
National parks are a no no with the dog, we travel with our mut and never have a problem out that way.
Enjoy,
William
