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.

The Darling River Run
Heading towards the flat plains of the Bourke region there are a number of imposing rock formations standing above the surrounding area. One is Mt Gundabooka, which sits at an elevation of 493m above sea level with a prominence 320m.

The two images from distance were taken facing north west from a location near Byrock. The distance to the mountain is about 85km ‘as the crow flies’ and you can see Mt Gundabooka on the horizon.

Visit Gundabooka National Park on the Darling River Run. https://www.thedarlingriverrun.com.au/national-parks/gundabooka-national-park/

New facility near completion at Trilby Station for relaxing and soaking up the outback surroundings. Looking good.

New facility near completion at Trilby for relaxing and soaking up the outback surroundings. Looking good.With Paul’s return tomorrow he and Bob will finish off the camp kitchen extension in no time. Once complete it’ll be a lovely area with comfy chairs, a commercial BBQ and the usual kitchen bits n pieces.

Tours just don’t happen...they involve about 6/7 hours of my day either preparing and/or being on tour

I have had 2 groups book and not appear at all this week which is disappointing for the amount of time and effort I put into having these tours available

Take a walk back in History!!
