Time to Head Outback

March 26, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

It can be said that an experience in the Outback will stay with you for a lifetime.

There are many reasons for this; the sounds of nature, the rich landscape, the abundance of stars and the friendly characters you are guaranteed to meet on your journey, just to name a few.

With an array of natural experiences available, the cooler months are the perfect time to explore the flora and fauna in full bloom. This time of year, NSW’s Outback national parks are transformed into a rich canvas of wildlife and flora making it the perfect time to escape the city.

Outback parks are easily accessible from major metropolitan areas such as Sydney and Melbourne by driving or flying, and visitors are urged to explore the outback to unwind and ignite their love for the natural environment.

Outback parks protect flora and fauna and also boast some of the best kept natural secrets, including the World Heritage, Walls of China at Mungo, the floodplains of Kinchega, the Aboriginal art at Mutawintji, the wildlife of Paroo-Darling and the weathered red soils of Gundabooka.

Aside from experiencing the natural beauty of the Outback parks, visitors can travel back in time to learn about Indigenous cultural history dating back 45,0000 years. This extraordinary culture promises to touch those who see it and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service will be running Discovery tours designed for visitors to learn more about indigenous heritage in the Outback.

Visitors wanting to stay in parks have the option to stay at some of the unique NPWS accommodation or camp in parks surrounded by the panoramic views of the Outback’s best natural landscapes.

For those wanting to experience the magic of the Outback firsthand and gain an understanding of parks and culture heritage, the NPWS recommend exploring the below top five areas:


  1. Mungo National Park
  2. Mutawintji National Park
  3. Gundabooka National Park
  4. Kinchega National Park
  5. Paroo Darling National Park
