Long Paddock Touring Route  

Go Back

The Long Paddock is a unique touring route, which follows the  610 km of the Cobb Highway (named after the famous coach company) from Echuca/Moama on the Victorian border, through the towns of Deniliquin, Hay, and Wilcannia, leading to the outback towns of Bourke, Broken Hill and White Cliffs.

The Long Paddock Cobb Highway touring route follows part of the great network of stock routes that became known as 'The Long Paddock', an historic web of tracks which linked stock-breeding areas of inland NSW and Queensland with emerging markets in Victoria.

Visitors can download The Long Paddock Touring Route visitor guide which outlines all of the towns and villages along the route split into regions, including the Murray Region, Deniliquin Region, Hay Region, Conargo Region and the Central Darling Region.

Deniliquin is a major stopping point along the touring route, and a good stopping point on the  drive from the Victorian border, north to the outback.

Situated in the centre of Riverina sheep station country and on the fringe of one of the world’s largest Red Gum forest, the natural attractions, river system and the network of forest trails in the Deniliquin region offer you the chance to explore nature.

For those more interested in history and the arts, the Peppin Heritage Centre and the Visitors Information Centre offer a descriptive history of Deniliquin and its links to the development of the Peppin Merino sheep.

You can also learn about the rich history of the stock routes by taking a stroll along The Long Paddock River Walk starting at the Deniliquin Visitor Centre. The Walk will take you past some of the old buildings, the red gum trees that line the river as well as the Ute on the pole which celebrates the world record holding Deni Ute Muster - the mosaic ute.

Right next door to the Peppin is The Long Paddock sculpture called 'Shod' which depicts a giant half of a bullock's shoe. 'Cut' by Jonathan Leahey is the latest edition to the sculpture collection and can be found at the Davidson Street rest area heading north from Deniliquin.

If you aren't sure where to start there are pre-planned itineraries to suit any interest, from fishing to arts and culture, heritage or food and wine.
The Deniliquin Visitor’s Information Centre can help you with any questions about The Long Paddock experience.
