Tours & Side Trips
River Run Sections
Drives & Touring - Lower Darling
While experiencing the wonders of the Lower Darling on the Darling River Run, there are two very special side-trips that should be put on the list. Mungo National Park is one of those outback destinations that is both physically beautiful and spiritually moving while the Perry Sand Hills are a unique formation of shifting dunes to provides an insight to the unique geomorphology of the area.
Drives & Touring - Corner Country
For the more adventurous you canâ€™t go past the largest loop off the Darling River Run. The Corner Country lets you explore the western-most part of the NSW outback. Bordered by the dingo fence, this region covers an amazing diversity of landscapes and a huge contrast to the grey-soil plains of the river country.
Drives & Touring - Central Darling
With Broken Hill as a base, the world is your oyster. Just to the north is the very moving Mutawitji National Park and its historic site (a must see). That is a trip in itself or for added excitement, a loop that takes in the Opal Fields at White Cliffs and then down to Wilcannia for a return along the Barrier Highway.
A larger loop incorporates Menindee Lakes, Pooncarie, and Wentworth where the Darling meets the Murray River. This route also provides an option to visit the famous Lake Mungo and the Willandra World Heritage area.
Drives & Touring - Upper Darling
There is so much for the visitor to do in the upper Darling region of Outback NSW. Two side-trips for any visitors list should be Gundabooka National Park, a short drive from Bourke and/or Louth, and the town known as the home of the Black Opal (and a bit or refreshing MADNESS!)
