Sleep in the outback for just $30

NSW outback resort introduces deluxe swags so cityslickers can sleep under the stars – Only $30 per person a night, all set up with linen

Support the bush and explore your own backyard – #HolidayHereThisYear

For travellers keen to support the bush at this time, Broken Hill Outback Resort has unveiled 12 deluxe, king-size swags so cityslickers can sleep under bright, desert skies and see more stars than ever before away from crowds and the bright lights of urban areas.

Opened in August, 2018, and nestled amongst sand dunes 13km east of Broken Hill in far west NSW, Broken Hill Outback Resort already boasts 12 luxury spa studios and a camp and caravan ground grouped around a charming, 130-year-old pub completely restored by the resort’s owners, Out of the Ordinary Outback, to offer a bar and restaurant.

The 12 spacious, new swags, which are set up before guests arrive, offer a top flyscreen so campers can admire the stars while lying on the thick mattress and provided linen. A campfire is also set up for guests to gather around each night and roast marshmallows and there’s no need for guests to pack up the swag the next day – all the ingredients for a fun, hassle-free camping experience in the desert.

The swags are available for $30 per person, or $60 per couple, including use of a headlamp.

Regular campsites are available from $30 a night per site. For travellers seeking more space and luxury, Broken Hill Outback Resort offers 12 luxury spa studios, each featuring a king-size bed, kitchenettes and a large, private balcony and jucuzzi overlooking the desert. The studios are available from $155 a night per couple.

Out of the Ordinary Outback owner, Scott Smith, said the resort was an ideal roadtrip destination or stopover for travellers seeking tranquillity, space and adventure. “This is also a great time for Australians to explore their own backyard and support regional areas, with visitor spending helping to buoy local economies and create jobs,” Mr Smith said.

Swag bookings are available via phone only – 1300 688 225. For all other bookings or information, visit www.brokenhilloutbackresort.com.au or call the resort on 1300 688 225.
