Cameron Corner

Cameron Corner is where the States of Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia meet. John Cameron, the NSW Lands Department Surveyor, led the first survey party along the NSW/QLD border between 1879 and 1881. On arriving at the corner in September 1880 Cameron erected a wooden boundary post with the inscription "LAT29" (latitude 29 degrees) and "Cameron". This original post is displayed at the National Parks and Wildlife Service Office in Tibooburra. The new post was erected in 1969.

The Cameron Corner Store was first opened by the late Sandy Nall in May 1989. The Interpretive Centre contains information on the world's longest fence, the Dingo/Wild Dog Barrier Fence, which stretches over approximately 5500 kilometres. The Fence was adapted from the original rabbit proof fence, and now separates dingoes in central Australia from livestock in south-east Australia. The Fence winds its way from the Great Australian Bight to south-east Queensland through five deserts, and Cameron Corner is located approximately midway along the entire structure. Boundary riders are employed by the Wild Dog Destruction Board (WDDB) to maintain the New South Wales section of the fence.

The Cameron Corner Store provides licensed accommodation, meals, telephone services, fuel, puncture repairs, minor mechanical repairs, and camping. Local tourist information, and souvenirs are also available at the ‘Corner', together with friendly local service. Cameron Corner boasts an unsealed airstrip for visitors who prefer to fly in.

If you are brave enough to tackle the heat, the folks at Cameron Corner offer warm hospitality (and cold beer) for their traditional New Year's Eve party. Where else can you experience New Year in three time zones?

While you are here, play a round of golf with three holes in each state.

From Cameron Corner you can travel south to Tibooburra or north west to Innamincka.

Around The Bend Dive Site

Cairns, Cairns Area
A bend in the reef at Osprey Reef gave this site its name, and it is well worth going Around The Bend at this exciting dive site. Often washed by currents, so generally done as a drift dive, Around The Bend is a plateau at the top of the reef wall with gutters, ridges and bommies to explore in depths to 30 metres.

The Oasis Dive Site

Cairns, Cairns Area
Free Entry
Divers exploring The Oasis at Milln Reef, off Cairns, have a choice of exploring coral gardens in the shallows or a series of bommies in deeper water. The bommies are quite spectacular, rising from 20 to 30 metres and coloured by beautiful whip corals, soft corals and gorgonians.

Cow Bay

Cow Bay, Douglas Area
After crossing the Alexandra Range visitors encounter the first bit of 'civilisation' north of the Daintree River at Cow Bay, located halfway between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation and offering great beach and rainforest experiences.

Wreck Bay Dive Site

Port Douglas, Douglas Area
Wreck Bay is located on the eastern side of Agincourt Reef No.3, off Port Douglas, and is a site that can only be dived when conditions are calm.

Wangetti Beach

Wangetti, Douglas Area
Local secret Wangetti Beach is just north of Palm Cove in Tropical North Queensland. Running from Slip Cliff Point to Red Cliff Point, the four kilometres of almost straight coastline has no facilities, with only a car park on either end of the beach and a stretch of highway connecting them.

Fitzroy Island Dive Site

Fitzroy Island, Cairns Area
Fitzroy Island is a popular day trip from Cairns and has a surprising amount of marine life. This charming continental island is close to the mainland, so doesn’t have great visibility. Around the island are rocky reefs with varying amounts of coral cover.
