Reflections off still waters

Distance Table

Stores, distances & coordinates below are only approximations from using various maps and online tools, but should be accurate enough for the trip.

Coordinates will generally be at a takeout point or bridge for most locations. Various reports suggest views of some small towns could be obscured by the river banks, so some care needs to be taken while navigating down the river.

Tap or hover your mouse over a table cell to show the estimated number of days it will likely take between two locations.

Distances (KM)

The distances were calculated by manually digitising the river path from various aerial images (ESRI, Bing, Google) in QGIS (WGS 84).

The Darling forms where the Barwon and Culgoa Rivers join up roughly half way between Brewarrina and Bourke. The Barwon starts at the confluences of the Weir & Macintyre Rivers about 300 km below Goondiwindi.

Most people start at Brewarrina when attempting the Darling River, but the distances for the main waypoints upstream on the Barwon and Macintyre Rivers are:
