Gateway to the Real Outback

Gateway to the Real Outback

“For millennia, the region’s Aboriginal inhabitants have appreciated the harsh but fragile natural beauty of Outback NSW. Today, you can see astonishing Aboriginal rock art, some 30,000 years old, at sites in Mutawintji National Park at Broken Hill. Similarly, you can find the remains of Mungo Man and Mungo Woman, dating back 40,000 years, at Mungo National Park, which falls within the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area.

Some of the most remote areas in NSW are here – Lightning Ridge, Broken Hill, White Cliffs and Corner Country. They also offer some unique attractions, including the Royal Flying Doctor Service Education Centre and the Living Desert Sculptures in the Living Desert Reserve. The Back O’ Bourke Exhibition Centre in Bourke is also well worth a visit.

In Outback NSW, you’ll find comfortable accommodation, great food and a warm welcome wherever you go. Consider a houseboat holiday in Wentworth, a caravan fishing trip to Brewarrina, or a bushwalking excursion to Cobar.”
