Far West National Parks

Darling River National Parks

Boasting some of the best in NSW, the Darling River National Parks provide not only a great way to experience the rich pastoral and indigenous history, but also the ethereal beauty of the landscape along the river.

The indigenous culture along the Darling is rich and many National Parks provide wonderful insights to the river’s significance to the many indigenous groups who have lived on its banks and surrounding plains.

Corner Country National Parks

The Corner Country is home to three of most unique National Parks in New South Wales and offer the visitor amazing insights to not only the natural history of this remarkable country but also an insight to our European history as well as the remarkable indigenous cultures that stretches back over 20,000 years and is still an integral part of Outback Australia.

Sturt National Park was established in 1972, and, with an area of more than 340 000 hectares is one of the largest national parks in the state. It was created when the leases of five pastoral properties expired. This land area stretches from the rolling red dune fields of the Simpson-Strzelecki desert to flat-topped mesas and the 450 million years old granite tors around Tibooburra.

Mutawintji National Park is located off both the White Cliffs Road and the Silver City Highway. It is a ruggedly beautiful desert region with continuous use by Aboriginal people. Stencil art of the Aboriginal people is featured on the walls of the rugged Bynguano Ranges. Bookings for tours are essential.

The major feature of the Paroo- Darling National park near White Cliffs is the Paroo Overflow, an unregulated waterway which flows into Peery Lake creating a wetland of unparalleled natural beauty. Camping is permitted.
