About South West Region

Looking for an adventure? You’ll find it in the south west. In fact it’s so adventurous, they named one of the drive routes which cut through this outback territory, ‘The Adventure Way’.

Expect big nature and a kaleidoscope of colour as red sands give way to thriving wetlands and national parks,

Animals come in all shapes and sizes, from the cute and small bilbies you’ll find in Charleville to Cooper, Australia’s largest dinosaur who called Eromanga home.

Adventure isn’t just reserved for daylight hours either, when the sun’s gone down, the galaxy puts on a nightly show.
