CowgirlWhere: Cobb Highway, NSW

Looking for a real outback adventure? Long Paddock takes you through the wide open spaces of country NSW and leads you to iconic outback towns such as Broken Hill, Bourke and White Cliffs. At more than 600km long this route spans along the Cobb Highway from Echuca Moama to Wilcannia.

Long Paddock is a historic web of tracks that connected the inland NSW and Queensland stock-breeding areas with Victoria’s emerging markets.
