Welcome to Central & Outback NSW

From the rolling green hills of New England to the red-dirt glow of the Outback, there are some beautifully Australian moments to savour: stargazing into pristine skies, sharing a yarn with eccentrics in mining communities, marvelling over art in the most unlikely places (on pub walls, down opal mines, in a remote paddock). Festivals mark the regions' calendars with excuses to party – from the quirky (Elvis, Tamworth Country Music) to the colourful (Broken Hill's Broken Heel) to celebrations of season (harvests, autumn foliage, spring cherry blossoms).

Who needs the beach when you can float down a river?
