The Darling River Run is a trip through time and the heart of Outback New South Wales. Best done by four wheel drive, it runs between Brewarrina in the North and Wentworth in the South, taking in Broken Hill, Lake Mungo, Kinchega and Mount Gundabooka National Parks which are just astonishing, and classic outback towns like Wilcannia, Menindee, Pooncarie, Tilpa and Louth.
The drive more or less tracks along the Darling River before it joins the Murray at Wentworth in the south. When you tour this route, you'll be re-tracing the steps of explorers Sturt, Mitchell, Dowling, Burke and Wills and the history and heritage of the run are matched by the vastness of the landscape.
Nature lovers will find plenty of wildlife throughout the region and a bird-watching tour of the vast Menindee Lakes system is recommended.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
