Hi all, travelling from Alice home (Wollongong) in July this year, taking sealed roads there as travelling there with non-4WDers, and interested in any advice on interesting route home (going separate ways from Alice). Will have 7 - 10 days, and have Rodeo 4WD and camper trailer, and are happy with moderate 4WD track.

Interested in Birdsville and Cameron Corner. All advice gratefully accepted - previous advice has been excellent.....what a great site!!


PS - those who remember my previous questions - our Christmas W'gong to Bunbury, WA, adventure was absolutely brilliant, three boys aged 5 - 9 had a great time and travelled really well!

Alice to Plenty Highway en route to Boulia, then Birdsville, down to Innaminka, the Strezlecki Track to Cameron's Corner , on to Tibooburra, then to Broken Hill if you like Bitumen to Sydney, or Tibooburra to Wanaaring to Bourke and then to Coolibah and over the Macquarie Marshes to Coonabarabran and then Scone and Sydney ( Woollongong is a suburb of Sydney !!) ...all suitable roads for your unit !!..Enjoy !!

Not a response for you, but if you are from Alice you may be able to help me out.

Leaving Adelaide 19th Aug. Will do Uluru, Kings Canyon etc, but spending a few days in Alice.

Can you suggest things to "must" see in Alice.
