Kidman Way, NSW

Welcome to the Outback and the Kidman Way which traces the vast length of the stock routes developed by Cattle King Sir Sidney Kidman to move his herds to and from major markets through the middle of New South Wales between the Victorian and Queensland borders.

Kidman Way

The major towns north and south are Bourke and Jerilderie and, while agriculture and history are major themes, the indigenous history, natural environment, wildlife, food and wine also feature in things for visitors to see and do along the way.

Try hot air ballooning over the Riverina and, back on land drive to taste the wines of the Griffith vineyards. Visit the Aboriginal heritage site at Mt Grenfell which has more than 1300 examples of rock art. If you happen to be visiting at the right time you can join in with some of the fun at the Festivals out here in the country and there’s history around most corners linked to the producers of the area – Hillston Cotton Gin for example and the gold and copper mining history around Cobar.
