Ride a Camel in the Desert

What better way to experience the majesty of the NSW outback than on the back of a camel in the iconic desert hamlet of Silverton, 30 mins north of Broken Hill? This part of the world was founded on the back of camels in the 1800s and the region was part of the route taken by famous explorers Burke and Wills and 50 camels in the 1860s.

Today, you can enjoy short or extended camel rides with family-run Silverton Outback Camels, through the frontier town and past the historic and famous Silverton Hotel, which has been used in countless ads, TV shows and films like Wake in Fright, Mad Max, A Town Like Alice and Razorback. The best ride is at sunset when you can enjoy the beautiful colours and hues of a spectacular outback sundown.
