Pooncarie, New South Wales

Set on the sloping banks of the Darling River, 115km north of Wentworth, is the town of Pooncarie, known locally as ‘The Port’.

Discover the Darling River Run

A great spot to break your drive, stretch your legs and grab a bite to eat, Pooncarie provides a unique insight into life in the Outback, albeit on the banks of a river. The locals are only too happy to share a yarn about the town, its characters, and its history.

Like Wentworth, Pooncarie was once a thriving port town, with paddle steamers laden with wool plying the Darling downstream for South Australia. The old Wharf site still exists today for visitors to explore. A campground is located on the banks of the Darling River. Enquiries to the Pooncarie Hotel.

Pooncarie provides an alternative track to Menindee and Broken Hill.

If you have the time, stay and explore – you’ll be glad you did.
