Darling River Run

Itinerary, Maps, and Brochure | 2020

The Darling River Run, Outback New South Wales, Australia

The Darling River Run is one of Australia's most iconic touring routes encompassing some of the best experiences, destinations, and attractions along the Darling River, Outback NSW, Australia. The region is known as the 'accessible outback' as it is less than a days drive from each of the east coast capitals.

Modern-day travellers who visit iconic towns like Bourke, Louth and Tilpa come away with an understanding of what the outback is all about. Henry Lawson spent significant time working around the central Darling and put this understanding into words.

Darling River Run 14 Day Itinerary

The Darling River Run can be done in either direction, downstream (from Lightning Ridge) or upstream from Wentworth to Lightning Ridge. Even though the ‘Ridge’ is not on the Darling, it is included in the touring route as it is a real ‘must-see’ destination and a perfect ‘fit’ for the start or end of this great touring route.
