Nature in Tibooburra
Tibooburra is the most remote town in Outback NSW. It’s also the gateway to Sturt National Park where you can camp out under the stars or stay at the old Mount Wood Station. Features of the park include rolling red sand dunes, flat-toped mesa, eagles, corellas and kangaroos.
Tibooburra is part of Corner Country in north-western New South Wales where three state boundaries meet – NSW, Queensland and South Australia. You'll get a warm country welcome here, especially at The Family Hotel where the walls have been covered in paintings by artists such as Russell Drysdale and Clifton Pugh.
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.
