General Information:

B76 is a rural highway in northern and western New South Wales, which connects the north coast with outback NSW. For the most part it's undivided, except in a handful of spots.

A section of the route runs parallel with the Gwydir River, and is named after Lord Gwydir by Alan Cunningham who crossed the river at Gravesend in 1827. The section between Walgett and Bourke is named after the Kamilaroi Aboriginal people of north western NSW. 2
