Heading to Camerons Corner in a couple of weeks and thought I would ask if anyone has been up ( or down) the Bore track from Bollards Lagoon to Innaminka?
Just wondering what type of track this is ie, sand, gibber etc.
Also what sort of scenery I may come across as I am taking some camper trailers through here to get some more pictures for our web site and other mediums.
At a guess I would imagine it to be looking quite good through here with the rain that has been through flowers out etc.
Any other feedback on this area between Tibooburra and Camerons Corner would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Paul.

Paul,
The Bore Track is THE way to go. Well worht the $10 you need to pay at Bollards.
The track is the old stock route and runs through the inter dune valleys. Great camping spots and with the rain there will be flowers eveyrwhere.
No problems with campers. I was in a group last year that had a number of softroaders towing campers and there were on probs with them getting through.

Paul,

You are probably aware of this post, but I will tell you anyway. See stan's post 24606. He has just got back from there and may give you up to date info if you want.

I did the Bore Track last year with a camper trailer, was easy & I would certainly recommend it.

Hey Paul,
Did the bore track coming home from Innamincka just this last Friday.
Great track and I was towing a campertrailer, mostly sandy base soil bu tit does go thru different vegetation types.

I had 2 deviations off the track due to water. One was a detour around water on the track, the other was a different track into the homestead avoiding a large body of water, but generally it easy to find your way thru it, the previous traffic's tyre tracks are a good clue here.

have fun

I don't know if we are talking about the same friday but we did bore track from innaminka to camrons corner on friday the 8th july and there were 6 cars in our group and it was so slippery and slow it took us about 8 hrs to complete the 180 kms. I know that this track can be done in about 2-3 hrs on a good day but this was one of the bad days. None of us had anything in tow and just as well i recon.

Hi Kim,
I think you may be right about that....now that i think of it i reckon it was thursday not friday. the skies were getting grey as we left Innamincka but we didn't strike rain until after Tibooburra and it peed down heaps all the way to Broken Hill.

I reckon by Friday the bore track would have copped heaps of rain, its a wonder it was open at all.

did you use the newly graded track into the homestead which veered off to the left before you hit a large body of ground water.

The Alternate route would be the old strezleki track, which turns off at Merty Merty, and basically follows the Creek up to Innaminka.
Can anyone comment on this alternative please ?

Yeh Keith,
Was going to go that way on the way up to Innamincka, but i got there late afternoon and it was really waterlogged so went via Moomba, sometime during our stay it was closed. Since then they have had rain so i wouldn't count on it being open anytime soon.

IMHO The bore track is worth the 10 bucks price of admission just for the distance saving and the generally good condition of the track.
