Explore the NSW Outback by Bike and Kayak – New Desert Experiences at Warrawong on the Darling

Our NSW 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 cabin and caravan park in NSW, 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 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 Outback cabins, 44 sites for caravans and tents, a camp kitchen, hot showers and toilets and scenic bushwalking and car trails. The Outback NSW caravan park is perfect for seeing wildlife, a variety of birds, fishing and watching stunning sunsets while huddled around campfires.

Easily accessed by sealed highways ideal for roadtrips, the sleepy and remote heritage hamlet of Wilcannia, 947km west of Sydney, 840km north of Melbourne, 714km east of Adelaide and 197km east of Broken Hill, was the largest inland port in Australia during the great riverboat era of the mid-19th century.
