Situated 296km north of Broken Hill and 39km south of Tibooburra, Milparinka is a unique Outback town in the heart of corner country. Red, dusty soil dominates the landscape, with big skies and mesmerising horizons all part of the picture. With its roots in steeped in gold, Milparinka is a town boasting a fascinating history, the remnants of which can still be seen dotted around the streets.
Milparinka was once a substantial township with four hotels, a bank, shops, a library, a newspaper office, police station and courthouse, a Cobb & Co office, school and post office. Today, the town’s bustle may be long gone, but four of the most significant buildings have been carefully restored as part of an award-winning heritage precinct.
Isolated and rugged, yet at the centre of so much, this north-west corner of NSW is an eye-opening experience and one you’re unlikely to forget.
