About Tibooburra

After rain, the country around Tibooburra bursts into life with wildflowers blooming in vast numbers across the plains. Named after explorer Charles Sturt, who passed through Tibooburra in 1845, Sturt National Park is close to town and covers 344,000 hectares, making it one of NSW's largest nature conservation reserves.
