Nature in Tilpa
There are plenty of things to see and do in the great outdoors around Tilpa. Birdwatching during the migratory season is popular, and enjoying a peaceful picnic by a quiet waterhole along the Darling River is a pure outback experience.
Tilpa, a small community in Outback NSW, is set in semi-arid, dead-flat terrain with red dirt highlights. It's 130 km north of Wilcannia and well worth a stop along the road that follows the Darling River between Bourke and Wentworth. The highlight is a visit to the century-old Royal Hotel, where you can enjoy the hospitality of a real bush pub â and a thirst-quenching drink. Stay in unique nearby cave- or station-style accommodation.
Go boating or fishing for Murray cod in the Darling River, just remember to purchase a fishing licence at the Royal Hotel. The area has prolific birdlife and wildlife, making it a great destination for camping, birdwatching and bushwalking. Join a tour, or visit the Paroo-Darling and Gundabooka national parks to explore the âsunburnt countryâ landscape.
