Corner Country Loop

The largest side track (loop) off the Darling River Run takes in the western-most part of outback New South Wales, the Corner Country. Bordered by the Dingo Fence this region covers an amazing diversity of Gibber plains landscapes which is in stark contrast to the grey-soil plains of the river country around the Darling River.

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.**
