Cameron Corner is the most remote location in outback NSW. It is the north western most point of NSW, located beside the Sturt National Park where the borders of Queensland, South Australia and NSW meet.
The Cameron Corner store is located in QLD, has a NSW postal address and a SA phone number!
This region was first explored by Captain Charles Sturt, who in 1844 went in search of a supposed inland sea in the center of the Australian continent.
A few decades later, the "corner" was named after John Brewer Cameron (a NSW Lands Department Surveyor) who led a party to survey the NSW / Qld border between 1879 and 1881. On his arrival on the intersection of the South Australian border in September 1880, he erected a wooden post. The pole was marked with "LAT 29" and "Cameron". He placed a wooden marker every 1.6kms along the interstate frontier.
Cameron Corner also features the world’s longest vermin fence. The 5,000 plus kilometer Dog Fence was constructed to separate livestock from roaming Dingo’s from the north and west out of the pastoral lands of NSW. The Dingo Fence passes through the corner along the NSW border.
