Outback Australia (On tour in Mutawinji National Park)

We left Sydney a couple of days ago in “The Landy” heading west for a tour of Mutawinji National Park and Outback New South Wales.

Our trip to Mutawinji National Park in far western New South Wales, and Trilby Station, situated on the Darling River, will give us some great exposure to Australian Outback Landscapes.

Mutwawinji NP is about 130-kilometres to the north of Broken Hill and situated in the Bynguano Range.

Apart from the natural beauty of the park, with its many gorges, rock-pools, and red gum lined creek beds, it is of great significance to aboriginal people who have been visiting the area for thousands of years to avail themselves of the food and water. The area has also been used for ceremonial reasons and still is to this day.

Throughout the park there are many examples of rock engravings, stencils and paintings.  This is one of the park’s great attractions and we will endeavour to see as much as we can, which is usually done with the guidance of the Park Rangers.

After a few nights in the park we will head east towards White Cliffs, a town renowned for its opals and the many “characters” that come to mine the prized stones and we will stay in an underground motel, just for the experience!

After freshening up following a few days in the bush, we will leave for Trilby Station, a working sheep and cattle property on the banks of the famous inland river, the Darling River.  A favourite of ours, we will camp by the Billabong and engross ourselves in very little, just taking in the atmosphere of the outback.

We’ll have a few days of relaxation before leaving Trilby and travelling via the small locality of Louth, making our way towards Narromine for our final night of the trip.

Of course, all trips come to an end, and as we make our way back to Sydney on our final day, passing through the towns of Orange and Bathurst, I’m sure there will be plenty of stories and experiences to recount from our couple of weeks “Out and About in The Landy”.

And be sure to keep an eye out for some pictures of our tours over the coming week, hopefully we can capture the beauty of our magnificent outback on camera…

    Again with the reflection… gorgeous, Baz. Gor-geous. I think photography is one of the reasons I enjoy traveling so much… I still have to upload the photos from my drive into my computer to see if the ones I shot on a whim came out… (that would be the drive from Colorado to California, when I moved)

      Beautiful isn’t it, the rising sun created a great effect on what is a muddy looking water…mind you it is all good to drink, once boiled!
