Tilpa Pub - Outback NSWAbout 70km downstream from Trilby Station, is the small town of Tilpa. Famous for its classic outback pub, which has been welcoming visitors for over 100 years, Tilpa sits on the western bank of the Darling River is a spot renowned for great fishing and plenty of yabbies.

It is a must see pub for anyone travelling along the Darling and the first thing you notice when entering the pub is that all the walls and roof are covered by graffiti which makes for an intriguing read while having a cold drink and a chat with the locals and other fellow travelers.
This is any old graffiti, as you must pay a small 'fee', which is then donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Originally a busy port servicing the river trade and local agriculture, it was a 'cross-road' in the outback as the bridging of the river here served as a stock crossing and port for the wool clip being transported down to Wentworth and onto either Echuca or Adelaide.

Many towns claim to be unique with some truly unique things to see and do, and Tilpa really does have a few unique things that distinguishes itself from other towns:

  • It has the only Boer War memorial that includes a commemorative to Harry (The Breaker) Morant.
  • It also has the shortest heritage trail in Australia comprising just two signs on either side of the main road.
  • The Tilpa cemetery is the only one in Australia with no one in it.
