Kidman Way

Click here to order your free Great Outback Touring Route Guide.

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.

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.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.

See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
