Cameron Corner is the point in the outback of central eastern Australia where the border lines of the states of Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales meet. The coordinates are 29 deg S and 141 deg E. Check if your GPS will agree!!
Located 1,400 km west of Brisbane, it was named after New South Wales Lands Department surveyor, John Brewer Cameron, who spent two years from 1880 marking the border between NSW and Qld and erected a post there in September 1880. He placed a wooden marker every mile (1.6 km) along the interstate frontier.

It was first explored by Captain Charles Sturt, who in 1844 went in search of a supposed inland sea in the centre of the Australian continent.

According to the Brisbane Courier Mail, the sole permanent resident of the town is Bill Mitchell, who operates the Cameron Corner Store and a golf course[1]. Apparently, it "is a Queensland business with a NSW postcode and a SA telephone number."[2]

The Dingo Fence passes through the corner along the New South Wales border.

Sept 2007. Bill was a great host. I will always remember him because he put us on to the only thing that deters flies. A cedarwood and rosemary roll on. The place is for sale if you have $850,000. New toilet block was supposed to be arriving soon from Moomba.
