Drive to Cameron Corner via the Wild Dog Fence
Driving Broken Hill to Cameron Corner
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.
