Holiday in outback national parks
Experience the grand scale of Outback NSW by visiting one of the many national parks in the region. Landscapes are vast and ancient; sand dunes are full of colour while sunset at Menindee Lakes is mesmerising. Watch flocks of birds settle on lakes and rivers, see hardy wildflowers after rain, and gaze in awe as hundreds of kangaroos, wallabies and emus roam the wide-open spaces.
Stay in a national park to make the most of your outback holiday. There are plenty of choices ranging from homestead accommodation to shearers' quarters, secluded campsites and bush camps. Spend a night under the stars â either as a do-it-yourself camping expedition or as part of an escorted tour â and you'll return home with some unforgettable memories.
Take advantage of Discovery Tours led by local National Parks rangers who'll help you unlock the mysteries of survival in the outback. Learn how Aboriginal people hunted for food in Kinchega National Park, stroll around beautiful Peery Lake and see an abundance of birdlife, after recent flooding. In Sturt National Park, a tag-along tour follows in the footsteps of explorer, Charles Sturt and his team, as they searched in vain for an inland sea.
