Back O' Bourke Exhibition Centre information
This highly worthwhile exhibition space follows the legends of the back country (both Indigenous and settler) through interactive displays. It also houses the Bourke visitor centre and sells packages that include one or all of the town's major attractions – a river cruise on the Jandra, an entertaining outback show (staged at 11am) and a bus tour of the town and surrounds (note that the cruise and show operate April to October only).
For self-exploration, ask for the leaflet called Back O' Bourke Mud Map Tours, detailing walks, drives, attractions and businesses in the area, including station stays.
