Introducing Bourke

Australian poet Henry Lawson once said 'If you know Bourke, you know Australia'. Immortalised for Australians in the expression 'back of Bourke' (in the middle of nowhere), this town sits on the edge of the outback, miles from anywhere and sprawled along the Darling River. Crime can be a problem here, so keep a close eye on your valuables.
