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.
