Far West Area Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Far West Area
The rugged natural beauty, Aboriginal sites and nature reserves are a great way to experience and appreciate the unique region of the Far West, NSW.
Isolated from major capital cities, the Far West is made up of extensive mining and pastoral industries. Guide yourself through Cobar's breathtakingly rare black opal mines and artesian baths. Explore the World Heritage listed Mungo National Park with remarkable archaeological treasures. Take a guided tour to the spectacular 'Wall of China', where erosion has sculpted sand and clay into delicate yet magnificent formations.
If being surrounded by natural attractions and wildlife is not your thing, then we recommend you skip this part of New South Wales and look at other places to go. However, before you do, keep in mind that the natural landscapes are where you can develop new interests, teach your children about appreciating their natural surroundings or simply discover and learn about the Aboriginal, pastoral and natural heritage of the Far West region.
Relish an afternoon on the banks of Australia's third largest river, Darling River, with the local Barkindtji Elders. Sip on some fine Billy Tea and taste traditional Johnny Cakes. Things to do include just relaxing and rejuvenating while learning of the times long ago in this unspoilt region. Whether it's a camping safari, a caravan tour or the underground motels at White Cliffs, you'll be comforted by great food, unforgettable activities and a welcoming smile.
