If you’re curious to know what life was like for early outback settlers, this is as close to an authentic experience as you’re likely to get. Mount Wood Homestead offers self-reliant accommodation to intrepid travellers keen to experience the vast desert landscape of the Corner Country, in north-west NSW.
Of great cultural significance, the historic homestead was built of rubble stone and was erected prior to 1890. Mount Wood Shearers Quarters and outdoor Pastoral Museum are nearby and reflect a bygone era of attempts to tame this wild arid land.
A great base for walking, birdwatching and car tours, immerse yourself in the majestic beauty of the rolling red dunes and sandstone escarpments.
Don’t forget to look up as bustard, kestrels and wedge-tailed eagles are often seen in the vast desert skies above.
The Reintroduction of Locally Extinct Mammals project aims to restore the ecological health of national parks by reintroducing at least 13 native mammal species believed to be extinct in NSW.
