Menindee Lakes and Mighty Darling River.

We take a leisurely drive through the winding ranges then across the flat Emu plains of the outback and visit a quirky place called Sunset Strip for our first stop.

Here we will see the amazing Menindee Lake which is three times the capacity of Sydney Harbour.

We then visit Copi Hollow for morning tea by the water. Next we travel up to the Main Weir where Burke and Wills camped during their 1860 expedition to the Cape.

When the River Lady is operating there is an optional River Cruise available.

Now it is time to head to the Historical Maidens Hotel where Burke and Wills visited during there time and have a light lunch and well earned cuppa. After lunch we will drive down the main street of this historic town and take in some of the history and stories of the local characters and buildings.
