The Long Paddock Drive

The Long Paddock

Echuca to Wilcannia

The Long Paddock stretches more than 600km along the Cobb Highway (named for the famous coach company) from Echuca Moama on the Victorian border, through to Wilcannia. It leads on to the iconic outback towns of Bourke, Broken Hill and White Cliffs.

It follows the stock routes that criss-cross Australia, when drovers used open stretches of unfenced land for moving stock or as feed in times of drought.
