Sturt National Park

Sturt National Park is the largest arid zone park in New South Wales covering an area of over 300,000 hectares to which a further area has been added to the east with purchase of Narrierra Station and was named after Charles Sturt.

The headquarters for Sturt National Park are in Briscoe Street, Tibooburra.

The park was formed in 1972 when adjoining pastoral leases expired and were purchased by the state government.

Mutawintji National Park

The Mutawintji National Park, formerly the Mootwingee National Park, is a protected national park approximately 130 km north east of Broken Hill.

Rugged hills and gorges contain rockpools and creeks lined with red gums, with caves and overhanging rocks carved with Aboriginal rock art are major attractions in this park.

Mutawintji National Park, which includes Mutawintji Historic Site, is an extremely special place for the living culture and spirituality of Indigenous Australians. The historic site has an extensive history as an Aboriginal ceremonial site relevant to many indigenous groups from the immediate and surrounding country.

Its significance was further consolidated by a blockade in the 1980’s to regain traditional custodianship of the Historic Site. The park also provides the visitor with many wonderful walks through magnificent gorges and ephemeral streams in addition to wonderful art sites.
