Bourke Area

The Back O’Bourke is more than a Geographical location; it’s part of the Australian language, part of our folklore.

Bourke has a population of 3,000 people who thoroughly enjoy the “back country”, because of its mateship, history and wealth. Yes – Cotton, Citrus, Grapes, Jojoba and other crops grow out here with the help of the mighty Darling River.

Fishing, Camping, Bird watching (over 160 different identified species), Bush walking at our National Parks (Mt Gundabooka), Mt Oxley (the Uluru of the Outback) Paddleboats and wonderful Mateship Country Tours that leaves from the well equipped Tourist Office in the Old Railway building. The tourist office provides information for the outback region and also has some great souvenirs and books to enjoy.

Bourke’s tourist industry is well and truly on the move with a Back O’ Bourke Exhibition Centre soon to be completed. An interactive visual centre that will take your breath away – a must for all visitors to Bourke.

We have two excellent caravan parks, 4 modern motels, 5 hotels (1 with accommodation), a number of B & Bs and Outback Station Stays. The 2 Clubs, provide the traveller with good restaurant meals and fine wine.
