Planning to be in Broken Hill JULY/04 FOR THE VKS-737 get together and being this far west would like to have a look around. Planning to visit Bourke for a day then head down the Darling via Louth and Tilpa to Wicannia staying 2 nights somewhere along this road. Our van is semi off road Supreme Territory so we can camp anywhere with our own batteries etc. Have read that Trilby is a good site. Has anyone got any info on this road and any advice would be appreciated.
Plan to camp north side of Wicannia (due to comments on previous posts) and then head to Broken Hill.

Find time to head out of Broken Hill to Silverton...the cemetery has some interesting headstones that give you a sense of just how tough it was.

Hi Bob & Lorraine
The road from Bourke to Wilcannia is a great drive. Slow down for the cattle grids they can be fairly rough just before and after. Trilby is a good spot and very well set up for travellers. The road was pretty good around Xmas but check locally for an update. Some really good spots to camp on the river about 30 kms out of Wilcannia ( East side of the river)
Have a good trip hope this is some help.

The drive down through Louth and Tilpa is a good run and the road is genraly in good condition. Tilpa would be a good place to stay...

Thanks all for the information that is coming in. We are looking to stay 2 nights, undecided whether Tilpa or Trilby or may spend 1 night in each area. All advise is greatly appreciated
