Outback - Beyond the Black Stump

Day 1: Sydney - Coolah

Departing from Sydney we head north across the Hawkesbury River and out through National Parks where we stop at a peaceful overlook for morning tea and a chat about the whole itinerary. Continuing on we stop at a boutique Hunter Valley winery for a tasting. After travelling through Denman we stop near a farm for a picnic lunch (weather permitting) then through Cassilis on the way to Coolah Tops National Park. This park is located on top of a mountain which we climb to experience arguably the largest and most diverse range of native animals anywhere in Australia in their natural environment - includes kangaroos, wallaroos, wallabies and possibly koalas, wombats, dingo and emu, and extensive views across the fertile Liverpool Plains

Day 2: Coolah - Coonamble

This morning we are taken on a farm inspection plus can participate in farm work depending on client’s wishes. Mid-morning we depart for Coonabarabran for morning tea and spend time exploring the rugged beauty of one of New South Wales’ most impressive parks, Warrumbungle National Park. The next few days also provide a great chance to see native Australian animals in the wild, including kangaroos, koalas and wallabies. This afternoon we travel on unsealed roads to Coonamble, then on to Macquarie Marshes where prolific birdlife occupy the area year round. Tonight we spend an evening with our hosts at Thurn, another working sheep and cattle station. 

Day 3: Coonamble - Mudgee

Our property inspection this morning introduces alternative farming techniques which have enabled this property to become viable in otherwise marginal land. We depart mid-morning and head south east, travelling through Gilgandra where we stop for lunch then on for a stop at Dunedoo. In the afternoon we enjoy tasting some of the Mudgee regions premium wines before arriving at our overnight in Mudgee.

Day 4: Mudgee - Sydney

This morning we make our way out through lush farmland to Wollemi National Park, a stop at Dunns Swamp then on through Gardens of Stone National Park. We drive up the famous Blue Mountains and stop for lunch. We have time to explore spectacular views in the heart of this unique World Heritage Listed Region before driving back in Sydney.
