CORNER COUNTRY

When you think of The Outback, you no doubt think of vast, deep red plains, rocky gorges and mulga trees. Heading north from Broken Hill, you’ll find yourself experiencing the landscapes that has made this region so famous among artistic minds and scientists alike.

Follow this route up the border of New South Wales to truly find yourself in the great red centre.

Leaving Broken Hill to the north, it’s impossible not to spend some time at Mutawintji National Park, home to ancient landscapes, beautiful rockpools and important indigenous historical spots showing cave paintings from the Malyankapa and Pandjikali people.

Continue north to Packsaddle, Milparinka and Tibooburra, three classic outback towns with a history dating back to their hey day in the gold rush era of the late 19th century.

Explorer Charles Sturt travelled through here, as did Burke & Wills on their expedition north.

Finish this route at Cameron Corner in Sturt National Park at the border of 3 states; NSW, South Australia and Queensland. You’re certain to be blown away by the scenery here. The flat, deep red terrain and wide open skies are a testament to why The Outback is truly unlike anywhere else and is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
