Introducing Sturt National Park
Taking in vast stony plains, the towering red-sand hills of the great Strzelecki Desert and the unusual flat-topped mesas around the Olive Downs, this park covers 340,000 hectares of classic outback terrain. Thanks to the protection of the dingo-proof fence, there are large populations of western grey and red kangaroos.
The national park has 300km of drivable tracks, camping areas and walks. The NPWS at Tibooburra has brochures for each. A favourite destination for visitors is Cameron Corner. A post marks the spot where Queensland, SA and NSW meet. The Corner is reached by a well-signposted dirt road (allow two hours). In the Queensland corner, vine-covered Cameron Corner Store (08-8091 3872) has fuel, meals, accommodation and good advice on road conditions.
