Tibooburra is part of Corner Country in north-western New South Wales where three state boundaries meet – New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia. You'll get a warm country welcome here, especially at The Family Hotel, where paintings by Australian artists such as Russell Drysdale and Clifton Pugh adorn the walls.
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.
Accommodation options in Tibooburra will satisfy those looking for comfort in a hotel or motel to those seeking the true outback camping-under-the-stars experience.
