The Back O' Bourke Information and Exhibition Centre is set amongst the native garden of the river red gums on the banks of the Darling River.

The centre allows you to experience a journey through life in the backcountry, rediscovering the stories of Australia through modern eyes, taking you from the rich cultural history of the past through to the future of the Australian outback.

This world-class centre employs a series of interactive installations and stunning visual screen displays to immerse visitors with stories of the Australian outback, bringing them to life and actively engaging visitors with the area's rich history.

Engage and uncover stories of early exploration, the poets, local bush rangers, the grazing industry, outback legends and conflicts.

You can also enjoy a unique blend of our Back O' Bourke coffee in the Café located on-site, browse our delightful range of Back O' Bourke merchandise and locally made products in our gift shop and check out what's happening around the region!

The Back O' Bourke Exhibition Centre is also home to the Bourke Visitor Information Centre.
