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.
BrewarrinaBrewarrina is a popular cultural and heritage stop for visitors taking in some of Outback NSW’s most stunning country. 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.
National ParksOutback NSW not only has some of the best National Parks in NSW, but also Australia. National Parks of Outback NSW are as diverse as the area itself. From Mungo National Park in the south-west of the State, the river land beside the Darling River at Kinchega National Park to the remote outback expanses of Sturt National Park.

Some sweet smelling rain fell on Menindee Lakes On The Darling River this morning. Only enough to settle the dust but appreciated. 5mm reported in Wilcannia also. #darlingriverrun ... See MoreSee Less
#ONTHERUN | On our way to Wilcannia, New South Wales, from Trilby Station, we continued on the the western route to #Tilpa - The village on the flood plain. It would be great to see more water in the Darling here but it’s well worth stopping into the Tilpa Hotel & Pub for a cool drink and a chat with the locals. A great camping spot can be found at Tilpa Weir Campground. Visit NSW #darlingriverrun ... See MoreSee Less
We stopped for a coldie and chat in April when we did the Darling River Run from Bourke to Wilcannia. The river was a sad sight then.
We were there back in 2014 and 2015, riding our 100 year old bikes from Broken Hill to Bourke.
Hope you put your name on the wall.
They do a bloody good feed at the pub too
#ONTHERUN | Continuing on at Louth we stayed at the famous Trilby Station Farm Stay. Trilby station offers riverside accomodation in the fully renovated Stockman’s Cottages and the Shearer’s Bunkhouse. Alternatively there are powered caravan sites or a selection of great camping spots along the river. We opted to camp for our overnight stay here with firewood provided and toilet/shower facilities available to freshen up on the run. Visit NSW #darlingriverrun @ ... See MoreSee Less

#ONTHERUN | Just down the road from #Toorale is Louth. We visited the historic Dunlop Station then dropped in for a cold beer at Shindy’s Inn where the locals were up for a chat. The Mary Mathews monument is an amazing historical memorial located at the local cemetery. Make sure you see it when visiting Louth on the #DarlingRiverRun.
