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.

Visit #Pooncarie on the banks of the Darling River, a mid-way stop between #Menindee & #Wentworth on the #DarlingRiverRun. Visit the Old Wharf Site, relax at one of the three parks in town or enjoy a cold beer at the historic Pooncarie Hotel. There are some great places to grab a bite to eat and why not stay a couple of nights at Garraways Cottage in the heart of Pooncarie. Pooncarie is also the closest settlement to the world heritage listed Mungo National Park so a great place to base yourself and explore the natural wonders of this region.
