Cameron Corner.

Hi.
First time to Explor oz forum.
I'm looking at doing a trip from Sydney to Cameron Corner.
This would be our first Real "out back' trip.
I'm wondering whether to go through Bourke or willcania.
Then from either of 2 these towns is the next stop Tibooburra?
Then from Tibooburra to Camerons Crnr.

Advise would be great

Gday Tone, I did the same trip a few years ago and went from Sydney to Broken Hill, then straight up the Silver City Hwy to Tibooburra and then on to Camerons Corner.

Contact the Wanaring Police station to enquire about the Bourke-Wanaring-Tiiboburra road.
When I did it several years ago the road was fine, been at least 3 floods since then though. The effects of those floods would be interesting to see on the flood plains if the road is fine.
Can't comment on Willcania.

We were headed up that way in July last year, hadn't rained for a couple of weeks, then as we were headed up to Bourke from Newcastle it rained and closed the road from Bourke to Tiboburra. The local cop said he would probably open the road again that afternoon, but to play it safe we by-passed Cameron Corner and went up to Innaminka via Cunnamulla. Just goes to show how 1 rainy day can close some roads.

Thsi ia very good trek and is a good introduction to the disciplines and experience of remote area travel. I have done Bourke/Wanaaring/Tibooburra and via Broken Hill, and Packsaddle etc. All great routes - Bourke/Wanaaring has far more dirt roads; it is bitumen all the way to Wilcannia

Hello Tone, why not Sydney, Willcannia, Whitecliffs, then across to the "Silver City H/way", then return via Broken Hill.

Hello Tone, yep, thats the one, comes out at Cobham.The road was in good nick, and interesting country, just keep an eye out for goats, the v/park at White Cliffs is ok, if you want you can go up to Wannaring then across to Tibooburra
We found the S/S highway to be the roughest road of our journey. Make sure you have a camel steak at the Cameron Corner road-house. Enjoy the trip. Keith

The good news is ALL of the above options are fantastic options and have their own merits.
Regardless of which one you choose I am sure you will love it.

Maybe head up via Bourke and home through Broken Hill?

Hi Tone and Hev

We did similar trip last year, Sydney Bourke,Tibooburra, Cameron Corner, then went up Innaminka and back via Flinders.

We loved it, fantastic dirt road from Bourke and all the way to CC. set camp for over night at Sturt N.P. (Mt Wood) shortly before driving into Tibooburra.

Enjoy your trip.

Cheers Rob.

Hi Tone & Hev

This is a great part of the world to explore, and as a number of others have highlighted there are a number of ways you could go.

You could make it a round-trip by going out one-way, and returning another. I’ve provided a link to one of our blogs that covers this area.Corner Country Blog - The Landy


Good luck, and enjoy.
