Follow the Fence Tour (12 days)


What Fence? The Fence that borders Queensland and NSW and South Australia and NSW, this is a very special and unique tagalong.

Starting in Lightning Ridge we will visit some of the unique opal mining towns nearby before camping at Kidman’s camp on the Darling River. Then we will guide you through Gundabooka National Park, visiting one of the beautiful art sites hidden in a cave along the way. Then to Louth and one of Vic’s favourite camping areas on Trilby Station on the banks of the Darling River. From here we head north to Wanaaring and Tibooburra and then join the fence line (border) near Olive Downs in Sturt National Park.

Some great outback roads will lead us to Cameron Corner, it is expected that the wildflowers through here could be quite special. From Cameron Corner we begin our journey south hugging the fence line as much as possible, following remote outback roads with a planned camp on two of the outback cattle stations (Pine View and Eldee Stations). After visiting the exciting town of Silverton with its many artists and the Mad Max Museum (not to mention the famous Silverton Hotel) we hit the big smoke at Broken Hill to restock supplies and then drive to Menindee for what might be your most spectacular camping spot ever!

We continue south through Kinchega National Park and once again make our way close to the South Australian border on our way to the Victorian Border. We have a very special treat in store now, making camp in the very corner of NSW between Victoria and South Australia on a private station and plan to get you to the most inaccessible corner of all, MacCabes Corner. That will be a very special occasion for everyone. At this point we start the journey back east with a visit to the confluence of the mighty Murray and Darling Rivers and then a visit to the famous Mungo National Park. On the last day we will guide you around Lake Mungo and then through quite remote parts of outback NSW to Ivanhoe and Cobar. To finish this amazing outback tour, we have included your accommodation in Cobar in a motel.

This trip is suitable for tents or swags and is also camper trailer friendly. It will be led by my High Country and Kimberley expert guide, Tom Savage.
