Camerons corner trip

i am thinking of taking about 10 days to go to The Corner from melbourne and back via Wilcannia etc. Would like to do as much free camping as possible. Can any body give me , any info as to when is the best time to go, where to stop and any other places of interest along the way. Will probably be travelling alone with family ie one car so possibly won't venture to far off main roads this trip.
Any info greatly appreciated.

with 10 days you could do a fantastically unrushed trip via the Flinders and the Strzelecki to Innamincka, visit the Dig Tree and then home via the Strzelecki or Bore Track to Camerons Corner, Tibooburra, Broken Hill or Whitecliffs/Wilcannia. I had mentioned a similar itinerary to another member about 12 months ago. I'll chase the thread. All of it would be "free camping" outside the $5.00 fee within the Flinders Ranges Nat. Park.

Cheers Mick.

Hello Alex,
On the way down to Broken Hill from Tibooburra, you could travel towards White Cliffs on a well-formed gravel road and then turn south to Mutawingee NP.

Camping is in a developed NP campground, small fee applies, good toilets, running water, fireplace, electric barbecues, shade, BYO firewood etc. It's a great place to go with kids. Lots of bird and wildlife to be seen.

You can try a variety of walks, some with indigenous rock art and cave paintings. The trick is to be there on a Wednesday or Saturday if you want to take part in the tour of the best art galleries. Tristate 4X4 in Broken Hill could provide you with detailed answers to your questions; they run the tours.

The road to Broken Hill is well-formed gravel, some corrugations, but nothing too severe.

I was there last August and I've been there at Easter; both good times to visit.

Happy travels !
