Iconic Outback Destinations

Far West NSW & QLD Towns & Localities

Dispersed across the west of outback regions of New South Wales and Queensland are towns and localities that are the stuff of legends; truly iconic outback destinations.

From the opal towns of Lightning Ridge and White Cliffs, across to Broken Hill and Silverton, and north through the Corner Country via Tibooburra and Cooper Creek, and through western Queensland to Lawn Hill and, finally, Karumba on the shores of the Gulf of Carpentaria. 

It really is the stuff of legends!
