Drive Brisbane to Broken Hill
Driving from Brisbane to Broken Hill offers many touring route options with two distinct adventures available.
The first option is via the Corner Country where the three states meet, or by following the Condamine River (a major Darling River tributary) to the Darling River Run down to Menindee and finishing with a short drive to the Silver City.
Broken Hill has always been a ‘must-see’ destination, so much so that in 2015 it Broken Hill became the first Australian city to be included on the National Heritage List.
The Silver City has evolved from an iconic outback mining town to the cultural centre of Outback NSW; an edifying transformation of an oasis in the desert for both locals and visitors alike.

The Adventure Routes
While the more direct (sealed) route from Brisbane to Broken Hill - via Moree, Goondiwindi, and Nyngan - is best if you don't like anything 'off-bitumen', the two adventure routes are on well-formed gravel roads and only about 200 km longer... and much more of an outback experience.
After all... what's the rush?
Along the Condamine & Darling Rivers
** This is an abridged version of the Brisbane to Adelaide touring route.
About the Upper Darling Catchment
The Condamine–Balonne Rivers catchment forms one of the largest catchments in the Murray–Darling Basin, rising from elevated areas of the Darling Downs. The Condomine is sourced from near Mt Superbus in the Main Range National Park and passes through Killarney; becoming the Balonne near Condamine.
At 1,195 km (Condamine, Balonne and Culgoa channel) it provides a wonderful, and natural, touring route from Southeast Queensland down to Bourke.
* NOTE: If you are travelling with a caravan do an overnight at either Killarney or Warwick, un-hitch and explore the area around the source of the Condamine near the Head and Main Range National Park.
Menindee to Broken Hill
The run from Menindee to Broken Hill is an easy 115km of the sealed road with some great vistas along the way… especially once you cross Stevens Creek and start to get a view of the ‘Line O Load’ of Broken Hill
