The Darling River Run
Touring Routes, Destinations and Photography
The Darling River Run is one of the best and most iconic touring routes through Outback NSW... it is a journey along Australia's most iconic river, The Darling, where you can experience the richness of indigenous history & culture, learn about our pastoral pioneers and their 'life on the land', and experience the laid back nature and country hospitality of the outback towns along the river.
The tour along our longest waterway is not only about travelling along one of our most iconic rivers, but also throughout Outback NSW via the many sidetrips and travel routes.

The Darling River Run is one of many touring routes through the Australian outback and can be driven in whole, in part, or with other interconnecting touring routes. That is the beauty of these driving adventure
