A 12-hour road trip from Sydney, Broken Hill is about as far as you can go in NSW without crossing into another State. In fact, the remote destination is so far west it even uses the South Australian time zone (30 mins back) to make life more practical.
For a taste of the outback without leaving NSW, outback tourism company, Out of the Ordinary Outback, has released special accommodation offers to help cooped up travellers enjoy the sunshine, fresh air, big skies, vast spaces and endless horizons of far west NSW.
Out of the Ordinary Outback’s accommodation properties in Broken Hill and Wilcannia re-opened on June 1, 2020, and White Cliffs will open from July 1, 2020, following a relaxation of travel restrictions in NSW and to celebrate.
Now is also a perfect time to explore the crowd-free outback of NSW with the storied Darling River flowing for the first time in years after recent rains, flourishing the ochred plains with colour and birdlife.
Out of the Ordinary Outback owns seven properties in far west NSW– Broken Hill Outback Resort as well as The Argent Motel and The Tourist Lodge – both in Broken Hill, and the Copper City Motel/Hotel in Cobar, Warrawong on the Darling at Wilcannia, the Ivanhoe Hotel Motel and the famous White Cliffs Underground Motel – Australia’s largest underground accommodation. Out of the Ordinary Outback also owns the Tri State Safaris touring company.
