Outback NSW

New South Wales is rarely credited for its far-west outback corner, but it should be. Out here, grey saltbush and red sand make it easy to imagine yourself superimposed onto the world's biggest Aboriginal dot painting, a canvas reaching as far as the eye can see. Towns with fuel and food supplies are relatively widespread and isolated, so plan accordingly, and always take the opportunity to keep your vehicle full of petrol or diesel.
