More information about this region of Outback NSW.
The Outback NSW region, otherwise known as "The Living Outback", provides a unique Australian experience that introduces visitors to the ancient and spectacular landscape of the legendary Australian Outback. Discover a network of rivers and lakes, astonishing wildlife and meet the Aussie characters who are the spirit of this vast red land.
Here you'll find rugged beauty, vivid red earth, bright blue skies, endless horizons and prolific native wildlife typical of the outback of Australia. Of equal interest are the mining towns of Broken Hill, Cobar, Silverton and White Cliffs.
The desert habitat favours many animals and plant species: a mob of big red kangaroos moving across the setting sun at Sturt National Park, a flock of Ibis rising from the Menindee Lakes and emus racing across the Mundi Mundi Plains. It's little wonder that art galleries and Australian outback bush artists abound out here.
Enjoy an Australian Outback adventure tour with a difference by following the Darling River from Brewarrina or Bourke to Wentworth where the Darling and the Murray Rivers meet.
Bourke is world renowned for the saying "out the back of Bourke" and is possibly where you will find out what is really "beyond the Black Stump" (a phrase used often in Australian slang to describe an elusive far away place).
Bourke is located in the far North West of The Living Outback region of NSW and is around 800 Kms from Sydney, near the Queensland border. Once a thriving river port on the Darling River, it was a major means of transport to the area. Bourke is the end of the hard-top road and a popular destination for Australian outback 4x4 adventure trekking.
Experience "the real Australia" with a spot of Australian outback camping. Sleep under a blanket of stars and cook breakfast on an open fire boiling a billy for your morning cup of tea. Or experience the underground life at White Cliffs where thick earth packed walls keep out the summer heat.
Mungo National Park is famous for its Walls of China dunescape, while Matawintji Historical Site contains one of the best collections of Aboriginal art in New South Wales. Kinchega National Park is an area of glittering lakes and historical interests.
The New South Wales Living Outback region of Australia is one of those rare experiences that taps into the very essence of the Australian heritage.
An Australian outback journey here will touch your soul and a B&B is a fine place for your journey to begin!
