Darling River Run, NSW

It’s a long dusty drive between dots on the map on the Darling River Run, a touring route which follows Australia’s largest river, but there’s never a dull moment as yet another kangaroo bounds off into the brick-red sand or a family of skittish emus appears; crows gorge on the unlucky ones as wedge-tailed eagles circle in a flawless blue sky.

From Bourke, the Darling River Run links the old paddle-steamer ports. Close by are the opal miners’ molehills of White Cliffs, the legendary mineral lodes of Broken Hill and the aboriginal rock art of Mootwingee, plus the evocative prehistory of Lake Mungo’s Walls of China.
