Lots of people go that way.

There's sand and some scrub and a general store with a likker licence and the Dog Fence passes by.

And thats about it!

An easy day trip from Tibboburra, there's a shop, fence, corner marker for photo.
Camp at the corner or just down the rd at Fort Grey or at dead horse gully just out of Tib. A couple of circuit drives out of Tib are interesting.

When are you planning to go? How many people / kids? How long do you have and where are you travelling from?

These questions will help us to give you more accurate information.

So here's what we know....

We have travelled to that area a few times, in the Easter, Winter and Spring school holidays.

We travel from Sydney so we usually get to Broken Hill and really start exploring from there. Broken Hill is very well resourced for bush/desert travelling and has a BigW for all the stuff you forgot to pack. Around Broken Hill, Menindee Lakes and Mutawintji National Parks are great places to see.

Cameron Corner is about 3-4 hours north of Broken Hill, near Tibooburra. Between Cameron Corner and Tibooburra is Sturt National Park. This park has a number of relatively easy tracks.

We could probably tell you more but need some more info first...

Hi Shane, We'll going up that way in Sept this year for the Birdsville races. Not sure if this will answer you question, but we plan to get to Camerons Corner from Innamincka via the Old Strzelecki Track then back to Innamincka via the Bore Track. Both these tracks are supposed to be challenging in parts and great scenery. You could do this loop from Camerons Corner, should take you most of the day, but would be a great day out from there (approx 420km). Mapping data is also on this site.

Remote area travel aside, the Bore Track is pretty easy going in the dry apart from the odd bit of sand here and there. Playas may be trouble in the wet. A heaps more interesting drive than the "new" Strzelecki though.

Re the original post. I love meeting the people, so not too concerned about the iconic places.

We stayed a night at Bollards Lagoon in the donga which is very basic, but a good change from the swag. It was good to sit and watch the sunset from the donga verandah. The cottage looks more attractive than the donga but would require a few more people. Breakfast was great, thanks to Gina.

A stay in the bar at Cameron's corner is always interesting. meet some great people if you sit there long enough. If you bare looking for a challenge and not oo concerned about distance, there is supposed to be some ruins near Montecollina bore, but I couldn't locate them.

With respect to the 3 local residents and their ferret with a wooden leg, Cameron's is only visited by people moving to more interesting places.... your mention of "surrounding places" is important - Tibooburra won't keep you long - Fort Gray, Olive Downs etc may be of interest.........you should consider scooting north through the Warri gate and up to the Dig Tree, plus Innamincka at least - now we are talking ! (good roads, but remote travel - safety first ! ).

David, I'm saving these photos for Sully - especially the dorkie ones!! Old fella was 83 on Tuesday and I have a report from the Rathdowney Pub (with a photo) that he spent the evening in the Pub, ended up drinking Cuban Rum and was thrown out at 11.30 for bad behaviour! Will email you the photo - front page of the Pub News.
