Leaving Broken Hill head out to historic Silverton to take in the many attractions. Enjoy lunch at one of several business houses before taking the road northwards across the Mundi Mundi Plain, heading for an overnight stay at Pine View adjacent to the Wild Dog Fence.

Sturt's waterhole on Flood's Creek is located on Pine View.

The journey continues northwards across the sand dunes of the Simpson-Strzelecki dune-fields before turning eastward after Smithville.   Well signposted along this road (which leads to Milparinka) is the turn-off to the north which goes through to Waka where it meets the road from Tibooburra to Cameron Corner.

Spend a night in Cameron Corner before heading back to Tibooburra and Milparinka, or continue westward to the Strzelecki Track.

Points of interest along this route include:

  • The historic village of Silverton

  • The Rugged Barrier Ranges

  • Many ephemeral creeks

  • The Wild Dog Fence

  • Flood's Creek Campsite

  • Sandhills, salt lake and pine forest

  • Cameron Corner where three states meet.

 

 

Food, Fuel and Emergency Services

Outback NSW is very well serviced by food and fuel outlets as well as emergency services but the Corner Country is more remote so good planning is the key to safe outback travel.

The following downloadable file highlights what is available in the Corner Country; download, and even print a copy, as a ready reckoner.
