Taking in Wentworth, Broken Hill, Menindee (Kinchega National Park and the Menindee lakes), Pooncarie and Mungo National Park as a sidetrack, this loop has it all and allows you to visit Broken Hill and do a grand tour of the lower Darling.
The 'capital' of Outback NSW, Broken Hill, has everything the traveller could hope, from the cafes, restaurants, Galleries and outback history.
Menindee, and the magnificent lakes, is a must for wildlife, camping and fishing as is Kinchega National Park.
From Menindee, the route rejoins the Darling River Run with Wilcannia upstream and the historic Pooncarie downstream.
For those wanting to also visit Lake Mungo (Mungo National Park) and/or Mutawintji, this loop can also incorporate the Mungo Loop and the Mutawintji Loop.
