Real outback adventure on the Long Paddock Route
If you've ever wanted to get out and experience the wide open spaces of country NSW, then this is the perfect drive for you.
The Long Paddock touring route follows the length of the Cobb Highway (610 km) from Echuca Moama on the Victorian border, north to Wilcannia in NSW. It follows the stock routes that criss-cross Australia, when drovers used open stretches of unfenced land for moving stock or as feed in times of drought.
