A visit to Kinchega Visitor Centre gives fascinating insight into this beautifully untamed part of outback NSW, including its Aboriginal heritage and colonial and pastoral history.
You’ll find the centre in the heart of Kinchega National Park, where it occupies a 1950s-era building in the old shearers’ quarters. Though small, it’s packed with tourist information on the park, the Darling River, Menindee Lakes and surrounds. Grab some leaflets and check out the great interpretive panels, which lead you through the park’s natural, pastoral and Aboriginal history.
The centre is usually unstaffed, so you’re free to help yourself to its offerings and move through the exhibit at your own pace. Bring your binoculars for birdwatching, and see if you can spot a kangaroo enjoying the shade beneath the neighbouring Kinchega Woolshed.
