We are leaving on the 18 May from Brisbane via St George we plan to camp first night around Cunnamulla then heading down to Currawinya NP for a few days from there to Hungerford to Thargomindah then camp somewhere along the Cooper for a day or so.Next to Innamincka and spend a few days from there down to Cameron Corner spending a few days there. From there we intend to go via Wanaaring to Bourke and on to Lighting Ridge for a few days then to Hebel and home. What I am after are suggestions on places to stay and things to see plus anything you my think of. Cheers

Good camping behind the pub at Eulo, $10 no power, great little town, try the Date farm/ winery/mud bath, bit of fishing on the Paroo river and try a steak sandwich at the pub in Hungerford.

Hi , Sounds like a good trip, just a thought you may like to stay at Tibooburra instead , not much to do at Cameron's Corner other than the store and corner post , but a lot to see around Tibooburra,( depot glen etc,).
Have fun Cheers Des.

You could call into the Rosehill averies around 60kms west of St George, they have a camping area (#725 in Camps 4 Snaps Book).
Detour to Yowah (#733) and check out the opal mining there instead of Lightening Ridge.

Cheers Kev

Firstly I reckon you need to slow down a bit , Brisbane to Cunnamulla is too far, enjoy it.
If you do there is a great camp at the Show grounds at WALLUMBILLA that had free toilets, hot showers and POWER.
Then another free camp at WHYANDRA with the above and donation for the showers. That was two days to get that far so slow down a bit and enjoy.

I am with M on this - too far in one day, there is so much to see on the way.
Stop and look at the Army Air museum at Oakey and maybe the Jondaryan Woolshed divert a little and go to Charleville, Cosmos Centre, Corones Hotel, Bilby Show (NPWS), in between there is the Big Rig at Roma.
Please slow down and enjoy and the trip.

There ia a good bush camp at Rossmore station(27km east of Bourke).Wide open spaces ,plenty of fire wood & water.
The owner also has the keys to access Mt. Oxley & it is well worth the time to travel up the mountain.The owners(Bill & Denise Stalley) can be contacted on 02.68723275.

Enjoy your trip.
