Outback NSW National Parks
Far horizons, rich red dunes, glittering lakes, unique wildlife ... the outback national parks of NSW are diverse, wild and untamed, offering unique experiences for every visitor. Watch in awe as endless blue skies change to blazing sunsets and millions of stars begin to sparkle in the darking sky; you'll feel that connection to the land and its long history of human habitation.
Explore the haunting, World Heritage, Walls of China at Mungo National Park, the evocative Darling floodplains of Kinchega, the spiritual landscape of Mutawintji, the remote expanses of the Sturt. Take some time to explore ... pitch your tent, or stay in unique, heritage on-park accommodation. Create a base for hiking, birdwatching, natural and cultural experiences, or just to relax and recharge the batteries.
Everywhere in the outback you'll discover superb examples of Aboriginal connectivity to this ancient land. You'll begin to understand the importance of place for people with a culture stretching back over 45,000 years.
Some parks, such as Mutawintji, offer unique guided tours with Aboriginal custodians to culturally significant areas. Others, such as Mungo, Paroo-Darling, and Kinchega, offer special Discovery programs during the school holidays.
Outback parks protect unique Australian flora and fauna. Birds flock to the precious, sometimes ephemeral, wetlands, kangaroo and emu roam the plains. After spring rain, carpets of wildflowers appear, and everywhere there are treks with panoramic views of gorges and wide open spaces.
The outback's rich pastoral heritage is also carefully managed, giving an insight into pioneering endeavours than made the first inroads into inland Australia.
Here are 10 outback national parks ready to visit and explore. We can show you words and pictures, but this is insignificant compared with your own visitor experience. It's when visit our outback national parks that a true understanding and appreciation of our great land and its spirituality and culture begins.
It's an experience you won't soon forget.
