Bourke has resonated through the recorded history of Australia as a place synonymous with the outback - the bush, the vast unknown interior - so those wanting to take the pulse of the beating heart of Australia come here to do it.

Aboriginal art and cultural history live side by side with explorers, inventors, pioneers and poets in the very soil of the Back O' Bourke. All history lives somewhere, and the history of the Australian bush lives, and can still be found, in Bourke.

Bourke is one of the few Australian towns known overseas, because it came to symbolise essentially Australian characteristics both geographical and spiritual.
