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.

LOUTH RACES WOULD HAVE BEEN A WASHOUT!!!

It’s the day after what was supposed to be the annual Louth Races.

By now everyone has generally dragged themselves out of swags, counted betting losses, grabbed a bacon and egg roll from the Central West Car Club and headed to Shindy's Inn Louth for the recovery.

As it happens the races would have been canceled anyway, with a beneficial drop of rain in the district over the last couple of days. Hallelujah!!!!

See you all next year 😃

Good rain last night and today in Menindee with close to 20 mils being received in town. The rain was quite welcome and will hopefully bring up some wildflowers this spring. And give all the River red gums along the river a good drink. Photo taken 7.8.2020. ... See MoreSee Less

Hopefully you will get all the rain you need for the rest of the year and years to come, the rain will make your part of our lovely country look beautiful with the wildflowers in full bloom

Hallelujah 💦💦💦💦💦💦
