The Bush and the Outback

The bush and Outback are Australia’s heartland – a vast, raw, brooding landscape with a world of wonders that spells adventure to the traveller


The bush and the Outback set Australia apart from every other corner of the planet, and, in New South Wales, you’ll find an abundance of experiences in the rugged Outback.

Whether it’s bending an elbow with the locals in a country pub, fossicking for opals on a mullock heap, yelling your lungs out at a country race meeting or watching the billy boil - this is the stuff that fond memories are made of.

Most of New South Wales lies west off the Great Dividing Range and, if you want a taste of the real Australia, there is nowhere else quite like it.
