Remote and majestic landscapes greet the visitor and provides three great road tours though the park to encounter pastoral history and natural history. It is remote, but sometimes the best things are.
The massive arid landscape of Sturt National Park has unique beauty; it's a place of peace and solitude, the most outback of our outback parks. Adventurous travellers are often drawn to iconic destinations, and Cameron Corner, bordering three States, is such a place.
Sturt holds a key to the geomorphology of outback Australia... ancient eroded mountain ranges and vast plains, rolling red sand dunes. Surprising wetlands are surrounded by white sands, ephemeral catchment systems support an ever-changing ecosystem.
The 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 Fence – at more than 5,000 km the worlds longest – forms the north and western boundary of the park.
