Has anybody travelled recently down the Cameron Corner along either SA or NSW side of the Dog Fence ? Any information? Any trip reports?

Lech, travelled down that way a couple of years ago and although you shouldn't drive on the actual fence track, the main track runs parallel with it for a fair while. Not sure for how long as we turned off and headed for Broken Hill.Dare to Lead not to Follow

This has been asked before, Do a search and see what comes up.
My understanding is that you are prohibited from travelling the fence tracks due to risk of collision with the guys who patrol the fence.

Contact the Tibbaburra Parks office for details.

I rang the pub at hungerford about the same enquiry, i had to contact the wild dog board in broken hill to get permission.
I never followed it up as i didnt get time to take a holiday, and it was too hot!
Hungerford pub phone Number is: (07) 4655 4093 in sw QLD. Owned by Moc & Sheree Parker, this should give you some leads.

We drove those tracks last July. The actual track along the fence is a no go zone, but there are roads that service the stations in the area which sort of follow the fence on the NSW side. Pretty easy going, but not much traffic around. We were coming north to south, turned right at Milparinka, past Depot Glen, left at Hawker Gate, and then basically followed the fence down past Quinyambie Stn, then back out onto the SS Hwy to Broken Hill.
