Wentworth

Come to where the rivers meet and find a town flowing with historic importance. Grab pole position at the observation tower and witness the milky grey water of the Darling as it merges with the rich, brown Murray.

A busy riverboat town
Stroll along the river's edge and imagine the busiest inland port in NSW during the paddle-steamer era. Grab a self-drive or walk map from the information centre and admire restored historic buildings, such as the Old Wentworth Gaol, built in 1881.

Surprising landscapes and ancient sites
Head out of town to the magnificent and surprising Perry Sandhills – 400 acres of rolling red sandhills that are more than 40,000 years old. For an unforgettable experience, time your trip to coincide with one of the popular concerts under the stars.

Wander around and view a wide array of plants and flowers at the expansive Australian Inland Botanic Gardens, the first semi-arid botanic garden in the Southern Hemisphere.

Join a tour led by an Aboriginal guide and learn about the ancient environments and Aboriginal heritage of Mungo National Park.

Outdoor adventures
Take advantage of a wide range of water sports options, including paddling, fishing, or waterskiing. If you prefer terra firma, enjoy a round of golf at one of the town's two golf courses.
