Where does the outback start?


If the outback hasn't started by Broken Hill, it's definitely underway by Silverton, 22 short kilometres down the track.

This blog is a quick introduction to the town, which is a must-visit if you are in the area.

Surely it's (back of) Bourke? Bourke tourist information would have us believe that premise.

Surely starts beyond the "Black Stump". monumentaustralia.org.au/themes/landscape/settlement/display/90560-black-stump

Nice Blog! To answer the question, I think it's where the roadside fences stop. ie no longer pastoral or agricultural.

I have seen the sign at Silverton, saying it is the original outback

There must be more than one black stump
I have seen in a roadside toilet stop, not sure exactly where, as I was on a back road from Tamworth to Canberra

There was a plaque proclaiming that (in years past), there was a farm named black stump, therefore this area was beyond the black stump

Thanks Tony. I have as much fun writing my blogs as I do gathering info for them. Australia is so full of great thing to do.

Dunno where the outback starts or finishes, but I reckon I know when I'm there. No fences.
