So much to explore in the Western NSW region

The Western NSW region’s diversity is its strength: Mount Canobolas, a dormant volcano looming above the cosmopolitan town of Orange; world-famous Bathurst 1000 motor racing; and 40,000-year-old Aboriginal stone fish traps in Brewarrina. Mudgee is renown for its wine while Parkes is famous for its annual Elvis Festival and CSIRO radio telescope. Cobar is a century-old mining town, and Henry Lawson wrote this about historic Bourke, “If you know Bourke, then you know Australia.”​

There's the rugged beauty of the Pilliga Forest and its wildlife, such as emus, echidnas, koalas and the Pilliga Mouse, as well as the parrots, eagles and falcons living in the red gums and stringybarks of Nangar National Park. The region’s rich soils have created industries for wool, wheat, sheep, cattle, goats, fruit orchards, canola and egg production. When you’re not enjoying the tasty produce of the area, look up high into the stars: Coonabarabran is the stargazing capital of Australia, located on the edge of Warrumbungle National Park. Nearer to the ground, spot platypus in Boree Creek in Cudal or mine black opals at Lightning Ridge.
