Have a good look around Wentworth and consider following the darling river
to Menindee lakes then across to Broken hill, or possibly coming home that way.
Silverton, Pub, goal, mad max museum for a look and pics. Mundi Mundi look out.
There's a small mine on the right as you head out to silverton that dose tours.
Broken hill. galleries and living desert sculpture park.
RFDS out at the airport. There's heaps of history to see around the town
possibly go on a guided tour of the town. Museum's worth a look.
There's also a few clubs for a good meal.
You could spend a week there and still not see everything.

To the north is the Living Desert state park (entry fee) with its rock sculptures and fabulous 360 views. Old farts would also remember Pro Hart. His gallery and life story are worth a visit too.
