BourkeEmbedded in our Australian folklore is the iconic saying “Back O’ Bourke”. First coined by the Scottish poet William Ogilvie in his poem “At the Back O’ Bourke” the saying captures the image of the remoteness of Australia’s vast outback. Bourke is known as the gateway to the real outback and the ideal place to start your Darling River journey.

The Brewarrina District is adorned with some of nature’s most spectacular natural attractions including the National Heritage Listed Brewarrina Fish Traps, Culgoa National Park and the magnificent Barwon River.

🌿👣🌿 Gundabooka National Park, NSW 🌾 👣🌾
Located 70kms from the Outback town of Bourke in the north-west NSW, Gundabooka National Park is adjacent to the Darling River and plays home to Mount Gundabooka and the Gundabooka Ranges. Nestled into the National park is some incredible displays of Petroglyph rock art as well as ancestral ceremonial grounds.
A petroglyph is an image created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, picking, carving, or abrading, as a form of rock art.

PAAKANTYI COUNTRY & LANGUAGE | Please note that images of deceased Indigenous people are contained within this video
The #Paakantyi, or #Barkindji, are an Aboriginal tribal group of the Darling River basin.
The land was harsh and drought was not rare. When parched conditions set in, the Paakantyi would withdraw into the backcountry around the few perennial springs, and cull the starving wildlife that came to slake themselves there.
The name Paakantyi comes from the word paaka 'river' and literally means 'belonging to the River', the River being the Darling. The People along the Darling were able to understand one another from near #Bourke down to Wentworth.
The Barkindji today derive from several dialects, all speaking variations of the same language. #ontherun #darlingriverrun Visit www.thedarlingriverrun.com.au. ... See MoreSee Less
