The Kidman Way touring route travels north - south and takes you through the heart of NSW, starting at Jerilderie in the south and continuing to Barringun on the NSW/QLD border. The Kidman Way is a sealed route which links with the Matilda Highway travelling north through the centre of QLD to Longreach and beyond. This is a popular inland route offering wonderful outback scenery, history, vivid colours and big skies.
