Corner Explore

There is so much to experience in outback Australia, although some may say there is nothing out there, it just takes one visit to gain the understanding about the essence of this wondrous country.
Experience the beauty and history of our Corner Country, an area that encompasses the towns of Packsaddle, Tibooburra, Milparinka and Cameron Corner. The northern and western boundaries of the Corner is made of the Dog Fence, the world’s longest fence at 5,614 kilometres that runs from near Dalby on Queensland’s Darling Downs to Cameron Corner and then onto the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

Cameron Corner, the point at which New South Wales, South Australia, and Queensland meet. Our adventure is not just about a driving from one point to another, it is your chance to experience the outback landscape, its pastoral and indigenous history, as well as a way to connect with the efforts of the explorers that ventured into the interior during the later parts of the 1800s. Meet local station owners that call this area home by spending overnight with them and experience first hand the highs and lows of living in this remote area.
