Kids stay for free in the NSW outback

Not too hot and not to cold – autumn is a perfect time for families to explore the far horizons, rugged, open spaces, fresh air and big skies of the uncrowded NSW Outback. And to make the easy trip to the NSW Far West even more appealing during the next school holidays, Out of the Ordinary Outback is offering free camping or caravanning stays for kids at two of its properties in Wilcannia and Broken Hill.

For the upcoming April school holidays and also the school holidays in July, Out of the Ordinary Outback is offering free camping or caravanning for kids at its billabong-fringing Warrawong on the Darling outback retreat near Wilcannia and at its dune-nestled Broken Hill Outback Resort.

Warrawong on the Darling has introduced a range of new experiences such as cycling and kayaking to help guests enjoy and explore the nearby billabong and surrounding desert on the outskirts of Wilcannia.

Including the free rates for children aged 12 and under, a family of four can camp or stay in their caravan on a powered site during the April or July school holidays from just $42 per night at Warrawong on the Darling ($32 for unpowered site) and from $48 at Broken Hill Outback Resort ($38 unpowered site). Advanced bookings are recommended for school holidays.

Multi-property stays
Out of the Ordinary Outback is also offering roadtrip lovers a 10% discount on stays at two or more of its seven properties on the one trip through the region.

The open-ended offer (no booking or stay deadlines) is valid at the dune-cradled Broken Hill Outback Resort, 14 km outside the historic city, as well as The Argent Motel and The Tourist Lodge – both in Broken Hill, the Copper City Motel/Hotel in Cobar, the billabong-side cabins at Warrawong on the Darling at Wilcannia, the remote Ivanhoe Hotel Motel and the famous White Cliffs Underground Motel – Australia’s largest underground accommodation.

Including the 10% discount, nightly rates (all per room for up to two people) start from just $110 at Copper City Motel/Hotel,  $190 for a subterranean room in the iconic White Cliffs Underground Motel and $195 in a deluxe king spa apartment overlooking the desert at the Broken Hill Outback Resort.

Less touristed and free of crowds, the easily accessible and close-to-home NSW Outback boasts majestic, ochre-red sand dunes, endless plains, Aboriginal rock art, star-filled skies and rugged ranges as well as character-filled outback pubs brimming with stories.

Road journeys from capitals like Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra and Melbourne can take highway wanderers to frontier towns like the mining centres of Cobar and Broken Hill, the remote and quirky opal hamlet of White Cliffs, the historic ghost towns of Wilcannia and Silverton and the home of the famous ‘Big Bogan’ statue, Nyngan.
