This vast region of NSW has plenty of exciting holiday choices for all ages. Some of Australia’s oldest country towns are here, offering a taste of pioneering history that can include a trip on a paddle steamer, uncovering 19th century colonial architecture and tasting wines made from some of the first grapes ever planted in Australia.
There are many fine regional art galleries such as the Western Plains Cultural Centre at Dubbo. Regional museums are well worth a visit to learn about cultural or natural heritage such as Griffith’s Italian Museum and Shear Outback in Hay.
The region is home to the internationally renowned Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, a 300-hectare open range sanctuary that houses over 700 animals, including many rare and endangered species.
Natural attractions such as the Warrumbungle National Park offer world-class walks; the highest waterfall in Australia is the Wollomombi Falls in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park.
Some of the most remote towns in NSW are here – Lightning Ridge, Broken Hill, White Cliffs and Tibooburra. They also offer some unique attractions including the Royal Flying Doctor Base at Broken Hill, underground hotels at White Cliffs and the Living Desert Sculptures, a group of impressive sandstone sculptures located in the Living Desert Reserve, 10 km from Broken Hill. The Back O’ Bourke Exhibition Centre is also well worth a visit.
In outback national parks, you’ll discover sun-baked sand dunes as well as lush wetlands teeming with wildlife. Spend some time exploring the back roads and walking tracks of these parks to discover the fascinating story of the plants and animals that have adapted to this harsh environment as well as the history of some of the earliest humans on earth in Mungo National Park.
