Corner Country is one truly memorable place to visit The Outback is a region of broad horizons, of adventure, heritage and discovery, and the Corner Country is out there with the best of destinations.
Sweeping west and north from Broken Hill, the remoteness of the Corner Country creates perfect photographic settings with its amazing sunsets and brilliant stars, its rugged Barrier Ranges, and lower Grey Ranges, spectacular dunes and jump-ups, and myriad ephemeral creeks and lakes, each teeming with their own special flora and fauna.
Home to the Wadikali and Mulyangappa people, the Corner Country’s first European visitor was Charles Sturt whose epic inland expedition followed the western slopes of the Barrier Ranges before being halted for six months on a tributary-creek near modern day Milparinka.Sturt’s Glen, the gravesite of the only expedition member to die, James Poole, and the cairn Sturt’s men built on top of Mt Poole, are amongst some of Australia’s most significant historical monuments.
Add to the attractions, the township of Milparinka and its award winning Heritage Precinct, Tibooburra, the most remote township in New South Wales, and Cameron Corner, where three states meet at the border junction of the dingo fence, and Corner Country’s becomes a “must-visit” destination. Heritage-hotel and modern day roadhouse accommodation is available in several locations.
Follow specially designated touring routes throughout the area and learn more about Sturt’s expedition, or early Cobb and Co routes to Wilcannia.
The Corner Country adventure is complete with a stay on any-one of several station properties in the area which offer accommodation, sight-seeing, bird-watching or station experiences (and some well- hidden gems) and Sturt National Park, an icon amongst Australian arid zone parks.
Corner Country is one truly memorable place to visit.
