The massive Sturt National Park spans the dunes of the Strzelecki Desert across the ancient mesas of the Grey Range and Mt King (The Jump-Ups) and to the Gibber plains, gorges and hills of Mount Wood. The Dingo (or Dog) Fence – at more than 5,000 km the worlds longest – forms the north and western boundary of the park.

The eastern section features adventurous drives including the Gorge Loop Road and the Jump-Ups Loop Road, exploring this eroded mountain range. Of course a trip to Cameron Corner is a must. Or take a trek along Middle Road for fantastic vistas at regular lookouts along the way. Fort Grey, Olive Downs and Dead Horse Gully or up to the summit of Mt Wood are also excellent options for moderate walks.

The two easy drives start and end in Tibooburra:

  • The Gorge Loop Road: This trip around Mt Wood and the Mount Wood Hills covers the outdoor pastoral heritage museum, Mt Wood Homestead & shearers quarters, the Gibber and Mitchell Grass Plains, the Twelve Mile Creek Gorge, and the old pastoral remains at Torrens Bore and Horton Park Station. Wildlife such as Emu, Kangaroo, and Wedge-Tail eagles are commonly sighted.
  • The Jump-Ups Loop Road: The ancient landforms that are known as the Jump-Ups are the remains of an ancient mountain range that have been eroded down over millions of years leaving the 150m plateau (Mesa) and the granite strewn plains which form the catchment of the Connia Creek (Ephemeral) which follows south-east into the Twelve Mile creek.

Sturt National Park is 330 km north of Broken Hill on a sealed and unsealed road and 400 km west of Bourke on unsealed road. GPS: -29.099377* 141.72226*

Autumn, winter and spring are the best times to visit, avoiding the extreme summer heat.
