The Back O’ Bourke Gallery is situated on the banks of the Darling River at North Bourke, 5km north of the legendary Australian town of Bourke in outback NSW. This beautifully presented gallery houses the studio of one of Australia’s foremost established outback artists, Jenny Greentree. Jen’s art is inspired by the rich Australian outback scenery and together with her husband Steve they have developed a working commercial gallery that never ceases to impress the many visitors that pass through its doors.

Sometimes you come across an artist that just "gets" her subject and Jenny does. She makes you feel like you are in the picture, looking and feeling. The colours are fantastic and so real that what she has created looks like a photo....Amazing!!!

Well worth a visit! Staff are extremely helpful and are very knowledgeable. The exhibit has so much information which is enjoyable to read and listen to. Not so good for little kids but they could take away some information. Well worth a visit!

Hi Happy camping trailor and Trip Advisor. I think this review is about the Back O Bourke Exhibition Centre situated in Bourke, not the Back O Bourke Gallery which is an art gallery situated at North Bourke.

This gallery captured the farming foundations of the area and kept the viewers interested with a variety of interactive and static displays. We purchased a package ticket for the gallery and the Darling River paddleboat cruise
