Step back in time and imagine what life must have been like for those who lived and worked on sheep stations in the early 1900s at Courthouse Museum in the Tibooburra township, not far from Sturt National Park.

The courthouse, built in 1887 and designed by colonial architect James Barnett, is located right next door to Sturt Visitor Centre. It offers an intriguing glimpse of those long gone early settler days.

Peruse historic heritage items, such as an old Royal Flying Doctor medical kit, along with items that were purpose-built for use on the six former sheep stations that once stood where Sturt National Park is now. Among these are packsaddles and water tanks for pack horses. There are also photographs and other relics of pastoral, mining and European history in the state’s far north-west.
