The area provides the visitor with a great insight to the geomorphology of Outback Australia with ancient eroded mountain ranges and vast gibber plains easily illustrating the concept of the inland sea that early explorers like Charles Sturt believed covered the interior of Australia. The park also provides several vantage points to the Dingo Fence (at 5,000+ km, it is the world's longest fence).
In the eastern section of the park, there are 3 wonderful and informative self drive tours:
The Gorge Loop Road:
This tour around Mt Wood and the Mount Wood Hills covers the outdoor pastoral heritage museum, Mt Wood Homestead & shearer's 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. A truly spectacular site.
The drive from Tibooburra to Cameron Corner takes the visitor through a diverse landscape including the Waka Claypan, past Fort Grey (which was a provisions stockade built by explorer Charles Sturt for his inland expeditions), and on to the Corner and the worlds longest fence; the 5,000+ km Dog Fence was constructed to keep roaming Dingos of the north and west out of the pastoral lands of NSW.
Sturt National Park is a true outback experience and affords the visitor with a diverse landscape with the colours and hues that are synonymous with Outback Australia.

Product Photography Services
The essence of any business is the product or service it provides and the main challenge is conveying the passion you have the products and services you offer. While it much easier to convey your pride in your products in person, it is a lot harder to do so in print or online and many business can let themselves down by poor images. All the words in the world cannot change the first impressions of poor product imagery.
With extensive photographic experience in product based photography, Lumieres can help your present your products to their full potential, whether it is an interstate train, interior design products, food and catering, performance, or travel.
Big or small, Lumieres will put you in the picture!
