I have to drive from Newcastle to Broken Hill. I know it is more than 1000km and I am assuming it will be at least a 12 hour trip, so I will stop overnight half way. Can anyone tell me the best route - should I go through Sydney or up into the Hunter Valley and across to Dubbo? WOuld Dubbo be the best place to stop for the night? And are there many places between Dubbo and Broken Hill to take a break (food, petrol, toilet etc)? If anyone knows the current price of petrol in Dubbo and / or Broken Hill that would be handy as well. Thanks.
Hi, I'm planning to visit the Mungo National Park by public transportation in August. Just wondering if there's any coach or day tour (or less than 3 days tour) going there, I only have a small budget and not expecting to spend more than300AUD, is it possible? In fact, I did some research and found that Mildura is closest to the park but the time took to get there from Sydney is much longer than to Broken Hill. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks, Janette from Hong Kong
Hi all, my wife and I will be travelling to Broken Hill in early July this year. We have a camper trailer and will be looking for a caravan park to stay in for a few days. Would there be one that someone could recommend? Also we are heavily into photography and wish to take plenty of pics. We are thinking the Sculptures at sunrise and Silverton - are there any other 'not to miss' photo opportunities? If I may ask a little more; we will be travelling from Broken Hill to Menindee and then onto Mungo National Park - is the road from Menindee to Pooncarie suitable for a 2WD with camper trailer? Thanks so much in advance, Bill

We are planning to drive from Sydney to Melbourne Via Broken Hill in January 2004, where should we look to get information on routes and accommodation. Has anyone done this trip either staying in hotels or hiring a camper van and does anyone know where the best place to get info on camper vans and the pitfalls and obviously one way hire. We are new to this game and have no idea where to start. Any help greatly appreciated
