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 Tibooburra 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.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
