From Tilpa, you will head west across to White Cliffs via a gravel surface road partly following the Darling River Run and passing through the Paroo Darling National Park.
Driving from Menindee to White Cliffs gives you the best of both worlds! 158 km of unsealed road on the western side of the Darling River to Wilcannia and continue the 92 km to White Cliffs along the sealed Opal Miners Way.
You will definitely get the chance to experience a dusty outback road! Drive south along the unsealed Wanaaring to Wilcannia Road about 170km then turn right onto Mandalay Road. The next 34 km west will take you through the beautiful Paroo Dariling National Park in to White Cliffs.
