There’s not too many Nationals Parks left where you can spend many days exploring, camping and understanding the hardships that our early explorers went through. Tucked right up in the North West of NSW, is Sturt National Park. Within it’s 350 000 hectares lies flood plains, desert areas, jump up country, gorges, history and much more for those willing to explore. The park has significant Aboriginal sites that date back 20 000 years and pastoralism for well over 100 years.

Baseing yourself at Tibboburra, 340 km north of Broken Hill, is a great place to spend a few days ready to explore the park. Here in town you can get basic supplies from fuel, groceries and advice for exploring the Sturt. In fact most people only call in at Tibboburra for an overnight stay when heading further west. Named after explorer Charles Sturt who pushed his way through this area back in 1845 looking for an inland sea, the towns centre is the perfect place for a launching pad into the area. A replica whale boat that Sturt and his men dragged into this area is mounted in the towns park along side other historical gear highlighting how machinery has advanced over the years.



It's remote - yet accessible for all to enjoy. Stay tuned for when we do the 100km gorge loop drive just out of Tibboburra.....
