Montecollina Bore to Sturt National Park

August 10, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I woke in the middle of the night to hear dingos howling and they were howling again just before dawn. It was another beautiful day and we were heading for Sturt National Park via Cameron Corner. Here we are at the turnoff.


The road to Cameron corner was full of corrugations. It was like a roller coaster ride driving over the dunes.

The wind was really whipping up with a weather system pushing through. We started to see many flocks of Budgerigars and our first Crimson Chats. They were mustering cattle and asked us to pull off the road.

That was the end of the Strzelecki Track! We arrived at Cameron Corner in time for lunch and an ice cream. For those who don't know, Cameron Corner is the boundary lines meet for the states of Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia. Of course we had to take a photo.

We then drove through Sturt National Park and setup camp at the Dead Horse Gully camprgound. We were sitting back relaxing when we heard the now familiar sound of Buderigars. Amazing!  They were feeding near our camp site in massive flocks. Just an unbelievable sight to see. It really was hard to take a photo that demonstrated what we were seeing. How many Budgerigars are in this photos?

We watched as they fed and had a great time trying to capture the action. A great start to our stay at Sturt National Park.
