Bourke Holidays Overview

 

Bourke was first established in 1861 and sits on the banks of the Darling River. An introduction to Bourke can take the form of a story, mystery, adventure or romance. Hear the tale of Bourke’s development from its past to today. Venture out to Mt Oxley and speculate on the strange noises heard by explorers. A mud map from the tourist bureau, a water bottle and a friend and go adventuring on an exploratory trek. Cruise up the magnificent Darling River on the Jandra, a paddle boat and ponder the old days of wool and produce ferried between Bourke and Wentworth.
 
Explorers have venture through the region, starting with Charles Sturt in 1824, and Thomas Mitchell in 1835. A shed of logs, or what Mitchell referred to as a fort when he had constructed it, Fort Bourke was only the beginning. Only 13km from Fort Bourke, eventually, the township of Bourke was developed. From the early 1860s until 1931, Bourke was an important trading and transportation hum in the region with paddleboats passing through.
 
Located on the very edge of the Outback in New South Wales, the term ‘Back O Bourke’ referred to anything west of Bourke as ‘The Outback’. It’s rich historical traditions and it is now a thriving tourist destination.
