The Darling River Run

The Darling River Run is a thin, winding line describing a route through the NSW outback, characterised by landscape, history, culture, literature and adventure. Taken as a whole, or in its various component parts, the route provides an opportunity to see the real Australian Bush and experience some safe and easy off-road driving, connect with Aboriginal culture and iconic Towns & Locations along the Darling River, and drench yourself in the history, and contemporary life of a part of the country that is central to the national psyche.

The Darling River is the third longest river in Australia and is the lifeblood of Outback NSW. Only a small percentage of the Darling’s water comes from within the Western Catchment - the majority of “fresh” enters the system from Queensland rains (rain falling west of the Divide in Queensland). Be sure during your drive that you call in to the Visitor Information Centres in each township and chat with the friendly staff who are knowledgeable on the best vantage points, local attractions, river history and updated road conditions.

It would be great if the Australian government would fund a little outback NT school to build them a car park and purchase a couple of busses. They have done nothing.

How are the sandflys now the water is dropping or is it too cold for them?

The billabong campsite was one of the highlights of our trip around oz last year. Cannot recommend it enough - in fact the whole station is amazing !

What a great camping spot 👍🎣

These Billabong sites on Trilby Station are a highlight of the DRR journey. Stunning at all times of day.

Beautiful💚💚💚
