    Sydney to Cameron Corner

    So as the title called it out we are looking to do a trip from Sydney to Cameron Corner from the 23rd - 31st Jan and wanted to know if anyone has any wisdom that they would like to impart...

    The route:
    Day One: Sydney to Bourke (9 hours 837 KM)
    Day Two: Bourke to Wanaaring (5 hours 190 KM)
    Day Three: Wanaaring to Tibooburra (6 hours 226 KM)
    Day Four: Tibooburra to Cameron Corner (4 hours 140 KM) via Sturt National Park
    Day Five: Cameron Corner to Milparinka (5 hours 178 KM)
    Day Six: Milparinka to White Cliffs (4 hours 210 KM)
    Day Seven: White Cliffs to Nyngan (5 hours 485 KM)
    Day Eight: Nyngan to Sydney (7 hours 557 KM) Via Dubbo and Mudgee
    Day Nine: If needed

    45Hours of Driving 2823KM in Eight days

    The above is what I was thinking as as the route but would love the feedback and if anyone has anything they would change I would appreciate the feedback.

    Also if anyone know good places to camp along the way, we are setup with RTT so would like to take full advantage.

    The pub at Cameron's corner do a great meal, they also have rooms in a Donga village as well and nice hot showers, there is also a caravan park or you can "bush camp" near the front gate to the pub.

    Check the weather forecasts out that way, temps in the 40s are not uncommon, can you and your vehicle handle that?

    That said, it is a great drive through the area you've chosen, if you go I hope it is unseasonably cool for you

    As Tim says - this is not the best time of year to be out that way. We have relatives out that way and have been there a number of times - but never this time of the year. The people that live out there stay in the aircon this time of the year and most of the work is done early morning or of an evening.

    Take plenty of water with you.

    Not where qwertytank is going. They are roads the locals use year round. I'm not sure if the Corner Store will be open though. It may be a good idea to ring and check - especially if you are relying on getting fuel there.

    If it was me - I would be going up into the Victorian High Country (which I am doing for a week or so over the Australia Day Weekend). At least it is cooler up there this time of the year than it is out west.
