If the spectacular and sometimes rare flora and fauna of the Corner Country are not enough to whet your adventurous appetite, especially following the drought-breaking rains of February and now early March, then toss in a mix of the history of Sturt’s Inland Expedition, Burke and Wills, and the mining and pastoral heritage of a region half the size of Tasmania.
Follow the path of Sturt, Cobb and Co coaches and travelling stock as you make your way across the region.
Visit the longest single fence in the world and the junction of three states at Cameron Corner.
Explore the amazing landscapes of the region, the saltbush steppes and acacia woodlands, quartz fields and gibber plains, ancient sandstone mesas and jump-ups that form part of both the pastoral lands and Sturt National Park, the largest self-managed park in NSW.
Learn about ancient Aboriginal culture at Mutawintji National Park.
Mining heritage townships of Milparinka and Tibooburra predate Broken Hill. Each has its own unique cultural and social identity.
Head out to Mt Browne goldfields for a spot of gold fossicking.
Get to know the locals on stations and in the townships, and pack the camera and easel to capture unique moments in a wonderful landscape. Point the telescope to the heavens through clear bright skies and glimpse our million star views.
