Towns

Country hospitality and friendliness is something that maybe missing in our larger cities but it is certainly alive and well in the Outback. There is nothing like visiting outback towns and to be greeted as a local. Add to that the laid back nature and relaxed feel, it is easy to understand why we yearn for the country lifestyle.

The towns along the Darling River will welcome you with a style that is all their own; whether stopping for a break or staying a few days to explore the surrounding area.

Travelling the Darling River you will discover heart-warming communities, wonderful hospitality, character-filled frontier towns, and legendary Outback characters that reinforce the pioneering spirit that opened op this country over a century ago.

Best fishing spots on the Darling River, looking for an outback farm stay, wanting to buy Black Opal, where is Pro Harts Gallery, 5 star accommodations in Broken Hill, where did Charles Sturt travel, learning about Aboriginal history and spirituality, where is the 'Back o Bourke', or when are the Louth Races?

These questions will gladly be answered by the locals and will be done in such a way it will be like talking to an old friend. Even if you don't need to know anything, many outback characters will share a story or two with you anyway.

From cosmopolitan Broken Hill with its myriad of galleries, cafes, wide-open streets and lovely historical pubs, to tiny Tilpa set on the banks of magnificent Darling River, you'll love the genuine outback warmth of the communities of you encounter on the Darling River Run.
