Drive to Cameron Corner
One of the most iconic outback adventure destinations, Cameron Corner, is a geographical point where New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia meet. For the adventurous, it is a spot on a map that should be driven to and is the gateway to the more extreme and real outback. It is also a stopover for those venturing to the interior of Australia... Innaminka, Birdsville, Strzelecki, Lake Eyre, and the Simpson (just to name a few).
Cameron Corner is 140 km northwest of Tibooburra, an extraordinary drive through Sturt National Park.
About 330 km south of Tibooburra, Broken Hill is on the edge of the Darling catchment of the Murray-Darling Basin, which borders the Lake Eyre Basin (Lake Frome catchment).
If heading the Corner via the Darling, a great way to understand the region's geology/hydrography is via the Watershed Loop, a touring route that links the Darling River Run to the Corner Country.
Cameron Corner is a remote place, but that is not to say you can get a bed, a beer, a meal, fuel, and some supplies thanks to the iconic Cameron Corner Store.
Cameron Corner Store has a range of accommodation options. There are family, double and single air-conditioned rooms. These are detached from the store and have shared bathrooms. All bedding supplied. Meals at the store.
