It’s been a couple of years since we’ve been able to enjoy a Christmas party free from restrictions, but this year is different so if you’ve not yet organised your end-of-year bash, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re with a company, sports club, social group or an extended family, Out of the Ordinary Outback has special Christmas function packages for groups of 10 to 300 people at Broken Hill Outback Resort and the recently reopened Copper City Hotel in Cobar.

Perfect for a fun, unique and festive event in the NSW outback, Broken Hill Outback Resort and Copper City Hotel offer stylish indoor and outdoor spaces ideal for small or large Christmas gatherings. The resort is centred around the Mt Gipps Hotel, a historic, restored desert pub 13km from Broken Hill, and also offers space on its sprawling lawns for alfresco events and live music under the sun or stars.

Yuletide groups can enjoy mouth-watering pizzas from $20 per person, gourmet grazing platters from $34 per person and indulgent three-course meals from just $59 per person.

Explore the NSW Outback by bike and kayak

Our outback retreat near Wilcannia, Warrawong on the Darling, now offers a range of new experiences such as cycling, kayaking and hearty meals to help guests enjoy and explore the nearby billabong and surrounding desert in the far west of outback NSW. Glamping tents are also on the horizon in 2023.

Warrawong on the Darling is also offering savings, bonus meals and free nights at the Outback NSW caravan park and cabins, nestled by the Darling River and surrounded by the sand dunes, far horizons, rugged open spaces and big skies that make the uncrowded region of outback NSW perfect so alluring and inspiring.

Snuggled by a classic, desert billabong that would fit perfectly into Banjo Paterson’s famous poem and song, ‘Waltzing Matilda’, and fringing a tranquil and wild stretch of the redgum-lined Darling River, Warrawong on the Darling is a sprawling 688-hectare sanctuary offering 21 deluxe, self-contained cabins, 44 sites for caravans and tents, a camp kitchen, hot showers and toilets and scenic bushwalking and car trails. The park is perfect for seeing wildlife, a variety of birds, fishing and watching stunning sunsets while huddled around campfires.
