Hi all the family and I are heading off o a loop trip from Sydney to Dubbo-Bourke-Wilcannia-Broken Hill via White Cliffs-Mildura via Pooncarie and Mungo NP finishing with a quick trip back home can anyone tell me of any must sees while I am out there.

We will be taking 2 weeks to do this is, is this too quick to see much as we have not been out that way yet.

We have seen the hay plains etc.. before when heading to WA so don't plan to spend too much time coming back from Mildura.

Cheers for any info guys and anyone else out that way let me know and might be able to catch up for a meet of a few faces

Syd - Dubbo = 1 day drive
Dubbo - Bourke = 1 day drive etc etc etc.....mmmm

at Broken hil take a trip out to Silverton, not much there but a good walk around...the old court house is good and so is the pub - kids can go in and look at all the mad max stuff, there is also a nice little cafe up the back of the place...yummy scones!

Dubbo - the typical stuff - zoo and jail....

A couple of places you could see are Mutawintji National Park and also a night over at Willandra National Park both very worth while.

All the best
