Outside Broken Hill lies a multitude of amazing experiences just waiting for you. Fossick for opals, learn about indigenous and European history and take in some truly stunning National parks on this journey east.
Begin your journey to the historic and operational opal mining community of White Cliffs. Learn more about Australia’s opal mining history and try your hand at fossicking for our national gemstone yourself. Nearby ParooDarling National Park is a must-visit, showcasing the iconic red earth and arid climate The Outback is known for.
Continue on to Wilcannia and learn about the early European settlers of the region. This town was once a major inland port, its Paddle Steamers were vital in establishing trade routes from The Outback to the cities.
From Wilcannia, head on to Tilpa and Louth, two towns built to service the many travellers on the Darling during the Riverboat Era. While in Louth, be sure to visit the Shining Headstone, an Australian National Monument. Built by town founder Thomas A. Mathews to honour his late wife. This large headstone reflects the setting sun each night, acting as a beacon of light shining through the town.
Toorale and Gundabooka National Parks lay
just beyond Louth, both highlighting stunning
beauty and rich indigenous heritage, with several petroglyph rock art and ceremonial areas having
been discovered across the parks.
