We came to Bourke really just to see this place and we were not let down! So well put together. The ticket price was for 2 days entry and you probably could do it if you wanted to read everything. Having 2 kids (10,12) they got a bit bored so we didn’t get to spend a huge amount of time there. But glad we did get what we did

We found the lady we spoke to,here very helpful and informative. She explained what to,see in the area and pointed out where they were on the map. We did the tour of the centre which explained how Bourke originated. Was very well done and set out.

The local council is to be congratulated for this top tourist centre, with plenty to see in very comfortable surroundings and very friendly staff who are only too pleased to assist all visitors. A must stop for any tourist doing the rounds of the Bourke area.

I love the Back O'Bourke Exhibition Cente! It gives a very clear and interesting history of not only the region but the people who live and have lived and worked in the district - from local indigenous history to European settlers, cameleers and farmers. I have been to it a few times now and will be back, there is so much reading and listening, that I have never yet been without finding something I missed last time. This time I was excited to find a reference to Barefoot Harry about whom the poet Francis Brown wrote a poem that my Dad used to recite! And after you have been through the exhibit, the cafe provides a nice selection of food and beverage to finish your journey through history. The staff are very helpful and will also provide you with information about where to go and what to do while in Bourke.
