Have you ever wanted to venture further into the outback to see what really lies beyond Broken Hill? Well this tour not only takes you to the stunning Corner Country, it takes you much further. Meet the people who call Cameron Corner home, where the Dingo Fence is actually in their back yard. Travel through red sand dune country to Innamincka on the majestic Cooper Creeek, and imagine how it was for Burke & Wills as they made camp at the Dig Tree.
Traverse the breathtaking red gibber plains along the Cordillo Downs road and feel the presence of generations gone by in the historic woolshed. This is a great way to appreciate what life was truly like for previous generations. Our main destination is of course Birdsville, the 4wd mecca of the outback and the starting point for many journeys into the Simpson Desert. Climb to the top of ‘Big Red’ – the highest sand dune in the Simpson desert – and marvel at the beauty of this vast country. Stay at the famous Birdsville Hotel, and while you’re there take the time to enjoy a drink at the bar with one of the characters who call this place home.
But this is not where it ends, our journey now takes us further east as we explore more of the Channel Country with an overnight stay at Windorah, then onto Thargominda, on the Bullo River, where you will learn about Australia’s first hydro-electricity system, powered by the abundant artesian water in the area.
As we head home there is still much more to amaze and surprise you, with a visit to the remote Noccundra Hotel before our final stopover at Tibooburra. The most remote town in NSW, and without doubt the capital of the Corner Country, this is a place brimming with outback characters and friendly faces. Sit on the verandah of the Family Hotel, and just ‘watch the town go by’ – a perfect end to an exhillarating journey of discovery!
