Langidoon-Metford State Conservation Area

National Parks and Reserves

Located about 65km from Broken Hill, Langidoon-Metford State Conservation Area offers scenic views, birdwatching and a unique opportunity to experience the exquisite beauty of Outback NSW.

Look out between the Barrier and Scopes Ranges and you’ll find seemingly endless views, characteristic of Outback NSW. With its rolling hills, vast plains and wide-open sky, you’ll have the opportunity to capture some stunning photographs.

Panoramic views aren’t the park’s only special feature though, it’s also rich in native wildlife. When filled with water the ephemeral Eckerboon Lake is home to large numbers of threatened and endangered birds, including iconic species such as black swans and pelicans. As you make your way through the park, you’re likely to see flocks of emus, and keep your eyes peeled at dawn and dusk for flights of pink cockatoos and parrot species nesting in shrublands. There are also vast areas of nelia shrublands, a unique and threatened ecosystem found nowhere else in such abundance within an NPWS reserve.

To complete your Outback NSW experience, history buffs can visit the remains of old houses, woolsheds and stockyards, and camping enthusiasts can enjoy an overnight stay at Eckerboon Lake campground and picnic area.
