Birdsville, the Strzelecki Track, The Dig Tree – if these icons are on your list it’s worth considering a diversion to Sturt National Park beyond Cameron Corner.

Sturt National Park

The landscape itself has a rugged beauty. It’s a barren place, but it’s pristine – a credit to fellow travellers and the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service.

Amongst otherwise flat country there are a couple of sections of track known as “jump-ups” where the track does exactly that.
