4 Day Corner Country Tour

Day 1: Depart Broken Hill between 8:30am – 8:45am and begin your Corner Country Tour travelling north east of Broken Hill towards the unique outback opal-mining town of ‘White Cliffs’. This tiny community lives underground, whilst above ground there is an eerie lunar landscape, which has been created by years of mining for the elusive opal. Our tour of White Cliffs gives us the opportunity to meet some great outback characters! Why not try your luck ‘noodling’ for opal in the working opal fields, or perhaps buy a special piece from an underground jewelry shop. Accommodation tonight is at the famous Underground Motel – an experience you will never forget. (share facilities). (L,D)

Day 2: Leaving White Cliffs this morning, we head through remote back country towards the historic township of Milparinka, virtually a ghost town, that was once the centre of a thriving gold mining settlement. There is much to see, including Depot Glen and Poole’s Grave, before continuing onto Tibooburra, our base for the next two nights. Tibooburra is the capital of the Corner Country, and is the essence of an outback town. Established at the height of the gold rush, many of the early buildings remain. The culture of the community reflects Tibooburras’ heritage, and with a population of appx 150 there are plenty of fascinating conversations to be had around the bar of one of the town’s authentic outback pubs.

Day 3: Today will be a highlight on your Corner Country tour as you explore Sturt National Park. Visit iconic Cameron Corner, the most remote location in outback New South Wales. Lunch today is in Queensland, where the Corner Store is located. Whilst we are at the ‘Corner’ we make a memorable visit to the ‘corner post’ where the three States meet, and pass through the ‘Dingo Fence’ as we head through South Australia and back into NSW. We travel through Sturt National Park, the home of the ‘Big Red’ kangaroo, and marvel at the scenery of the ‘Jump-Ups’, the Gorge Loop Road, and the outdoor Pastoral Museum at Mt Wood. Overnight again in Tibooburra.(LB,L,D)

Day 4: After breakfast we travel south through ever changing landscapes with plenty of photo opportunities along the way. Bird and wildlife abound in the Corner Country, and our guides enjoy showing you our native wildlife in their outback environment. Our lunch stop is at Packsaddle Roadhouse, where we enjoy the outback hospitality and check out the memorabilia from the wool industry displayed in the rustic dining room. This afternoon your Corner Country tour comes to an end as you return to Broken Hill to where you will be transferred to your accommodation. (LB,L)
