Bourke <> Tibooburra <> Broken Hill
Corner Country Touring Routes
A wonderful alternative for the Bourke-Broken Hill route via the Darling River Run and the Barrier Highway, the Tibooburra Loop heads west from Bourke, through Wanaaring and onto Sturt National Park, Tibooburra, Milparinka and then south along the Silver City Highway to Broken Hill (or Vice Versa).
Ephemeral creeks and lakes are interspersed amongst the Barrier and Grey Ranges and sand dunes of the Simpson-Strzelecki Dunefields, whilst sandstone mesas rise from ancient sea-beds.
The iconic outback townships of Milparinka, Tibooburra and Wanaaring are located in the Corner Country, each with their own measure of character, characters and history.
Roads through the Corner Country are dry weather only. Some follow the route of explorer Charles Sturt while others follow travelling stock routes or the Cobb and Co tracks with each leading to a station property or township for an unforgettable Corner Country experience.
** NOTE: Part of this tour is on dry-weather roads.**
At 750km's it is an adventure in itself and can also include The Opal Miners Way which takes in the Opal town of White Cliffs.
