The Corner Country Loop extends from Milparinka westward along the Hawker Gate Road to an intersection about 10 km west of Yandama Station. The junction is well signposted. The road to Cameron Corner passes through station country until it connects with the road running westward from Tibooburra through Sturt National Park. This road is maintained by the RTA, but 4WD is recommended, although not essential.

Hawker Gate is located in the Wild Dog Fence, is the largest single structure in the world and extends for some 5000 km. Traffic cannot pass through the gate into South Australia.
