G`day peoples, am leaving Melb soon for a little family trip up north to Innaminka via Mildura,BrokenHill and Cameron corner.My question is if i stop for first nights camp at Mildura(thinking Horseshoe bend on river)and then driving past B/hILL the next day does anyone know a good spot to camp between B/Hill and Tibooburra?Would prefer to trackside camp rather than approaching homestead accomodation. p.s Have you camped at Cullyamurra waterhole(Innaminka)....good spot?.....there 2 nights before heading down Strzelecki track to F/Ranges.....any advise appreciated from you guys.

Jeremy,
Cullyamurra is an excellent camping spot (but pales when compared to Coongie lake), near Tibooburra there is camping just to the north of town (about 1km), or at Fort Grey, nearer to Cameron corner.
Cheers
Andrew

I suggest going on to wentworth and camp on the murrey just south of town. Beautiful and you will be on your own.And should catch a yellow belly or Cod. no rules or ranger Have a beer at the royal in town Ronnie andrews (essendon player from the 80's) did own it and great old fashioned pub.
good camping at the silverton bush camp hot showers and only costs a few dollars. walk accross the dry riverbed to the pub, (an a dventure in itself)

There is a Lake between B/H and Tib, forget the name of it and no map handy, it's just south of Packsaddle. You can camp there for the night.

Folks,
Just a little piece of advice - be "alert" when passing through Wilcannia - some of the "Locals" dont seem too friendly to those passing through.

Some years ago wife was on a bus which got stoned as it passed through town, and last year one ambling across the road tried to make me stop.
If you must stop consider posting a guard on the vehicle , otherwise make your intention to pass through town very clear to any who try to get in the way.

Regards

Pete G

Jeremy,
I have stayed at Mutawintji (Mootawingee is old spelling); it is worth 2 nights, and only 130klm from Broken Hill, towards White Cilffs.
Plenty of space, hot showers (bore water) and toilets. Good walking at Aboriginal rock art.
From there we traveled to Fort Grey (Sturt Nat Park) via Tiborburra.
Don't miss a night at Montecollina Bore on the way to Flinders from Innamincka, I also highly recommend Chambers Gorge for a night (between Arkaroola and Wilpena Pound).
I was very dry when we visited, however after rain it would be a different place, and we will go again.
Have a great trip.
Thommo
