Planning to do the above in AU Falcon Wagon. Which is the best route, RACQ trip planner shows short route which seems to be tracks only, HEMA ma shows longer route via Nockatunga.

Experienced driving outback roads... Bedourie-Windorah etc. Have sump guard, bull bar, dual battery, 40 litre water capacity, bullbar.

How long should I allow for non rushed return Thargomindah-Cameron Cnr back to Thargomindah.

Any advice appreceiated.

Hi Kevin

The easiest on the vehicle would probably be to do through Nokatunga and south to Tibooburra then head northwest to Camerons Crn. You would allow a days drive for this, overnight at Camerons Crn before the return trip.

You could also turn right 150km south of Nockatung onto a track that heads southwest straight to Cameron Crn.
This intersection can also be reach by taking the slightly shorter Bulloo Downs track, which heads southwest from Thargomindah through Bulloo Downs and Old Tickalara. I would probably be wise to ask the condition of the Bulloo track, it has been a fairly good track the few times we have travelled it but if wet, may be different.

Going through Tibooburra (510km) would be add around 160km each way compared to taking the shorter route through Bulloo downs (350km). These tracks or normally ok, just the normal sandy stoney conditions you get out that way.
Coddiwomple (v.) To travel purposefully towards a vague destination.

Thanks Chris,

Think we'll get to Thargomindah then check road conditions.

Have a good look at your tyres before you head out won't you.

Yes, I'm sure the rock that got my gearbox a couple of years ago has a tyre hungry cousin out there somewhere.
