Stop at Cobar, have a look at the open cut mine, there are a few other local parks and attractions. Big beer can, also stop at Wilcannia for a look at all the stone type buildings. Very interesting. It is a relatively easy drive although long there is hardly any traffic to contend with.
That’s great, Todd! Just make sure you have plenty of water as Sweetbiscuit says - and Rid or some other fly repellent. It might be too hot in January for the little sods, but they can drive you nuts. I used to live in the Western Division & love it to bits - but one thing I don’t miss is those @$&+:( flies!
Sweetbiscuit -I can believe it about the Roos. A friend drove from Gongolgon to Cobar (230kms) in September & counted 1300 roo carcasss alongside & on the road.
@Bokhara, yep, it's crazy at the moment. People can be stuck for hours and days out there if we can't get hold of a towie or they don't have insurance :-(
Roos are certainly not endangered and it is always horrible to hit one, but wow, I do wish for everyone they were a little bit brighter and a bit fewer in numbers!
Counting roos - one way to count down a road trip - personally I prefer the "Conversations" or "Chatters" pod casts.

We used to pass the time on long outback drives by betting on when we would see a dead roo! Nearest to home; most in 100Km; live vs dead etc. Kept the kids amused for hours!!
