The Outback Experience
The Outback is one of those rare experiences that taps into the very essence of the Australian heritage. A journey here will touch your soul and Trilby Station is a fine place for your journey to begin.
The NSW Outback provides a unique Australian experience that brings visitors in contact with the ancient and spectacular landscape of the Outback. Here you'll find rugged beauty, vivid red earth, bright blue skies, endless horizons and prolific native wildlife.
Outback NSW is rich in aboriginal history and an hours drive from Trilby Station can take you back 50,000 years to the dreamtime territory of the Ngemba tribe in the canyon of Mt Gundabooka, where you can view classic rock paintings. Time spent atop Mt Oxley, looking across a 100km expanse rekindles the experience of explorers Sturt and Hume in 1829 where they felt that "this would never be the haunt of civilized man'.
Located 132 km northwest of Cobar, 100 km southwest of Bourke and 836 km northwest of Sydney, Louth is a tiny little village on the banks of the Darling River which was established in 1862 when an Irishman called Matthews selected 40 acres from the Toorale holding (where he was employed as a shipwright and wheelwright) and built a pub to cater for the passing river and land-based trade.
Gundabooka National Park is located a short drive from Bourke and the Darling River boasts some magnificent examples of Aboriginal Rock Art in addition to three magnificent walks to access different sections of Mt Gundabooka.
Easily accessible off the Kidman way the three main areas of the park provide great walks and picnic locations and the centrally located Dry Tank area provides the visitor with a wonderfully located camping area.
Being located on the Darling River, Trilby is located on one of Australia's great outback drives, the Darling River Run which follows the course of this majestic river from north east NSW to the south west corner of the state and its confluence with the mighty Murray at Wentworth.
