Corner Country Touring
Touring Routes Corner Country
The key to experiencing the richly diverse history and natural heritage of Outback New South Wales is to experience the drives that connect across the region. The most significant of these is Sturt's Steps Touring, a driving route that approximates the journey taken by Charles Sturt in 1845.
Beginning at either Broken Hill or Cameron Corner the route takes in Stationstay properties as well as Milparinka and Tibooburra along its path. It is a journey not to be rushed, but rather experienced, as the landscape changes, the wildlife and flora vary, and one meets a few local characters along the way.
The Silver City Highway to Broken Hill and the White Cliffs Road to Wilcannia follow the traditional routes of Cobb and Co and Morrison Bros, linking the Corner Country with other locations within Outback New South Wales.
Linking Tibooburra to Wanaaring and Bourke is the "cut-line", the route of the original telegraph line and once proposed rail link to the Corner Country. It was also a major travelling stock route in the day when livestock was walked to the market and needed regularly located public watering places.
For those travelling the Darling River Run that links Walgett to Wentworth following the course of the Darling River, there are some great side-trips that includes the iconic touring routes of the Corner Country; especially the Corner Explorer touring route.
