Head to Sturt National Park on your journey into the Australian outback. Camp for a few days to really explore the landscape and historic heritage of the park.
Sturt National Park protects an enormous arid landscape of space and solitude. From the rolling red sand dunes of the Strezlecki desert to the flat-topped mesas and the 450 million year old granite tors around Tibooburra, a visit to this outback park is a once in a lifetime experience for many.
One of the best ways to explore the park is along one of the self-guided drives or you could join a guided tour with one of the tour operators that visit the park. Try the short loop walks at Fort Grey or Dead Horse Gully. If you’ve only time for one walk, head to Mount Wood hills for a walk to the summit where stunning views of this spectacular landscape are waiting.
There’s also the historic Dingo Fence that runs east to south-west along the eastern third of Australia and along the western and northern boundary of Sturt National Park.
Spend the night at one of the park’s four campgrounds, each of which offers sites suitable for caravans and camper trailers.
