Sturts Steps Touring Route
Follow the approximated path taken by the first European explorers to enter these remote lands. In 1844 Captain Charles Sturt and his exploration party departed Adelaide seeking pastoral country and an inland sea in untraversed country to the north. Today, thanks to the committed efforts of locals, supported by government organisations, travellers can explore these remote places to glimpse where history and the present meet.
It’s a long and remote trip and well worth the visit. Sound preparation and planning are just as important for today’s modern explorers. To plan your trip, follow the link…
Sturt’s Steps interpretive museum coming soon to Tibooburra! Watch this space!
Established in late 1800s the common surrounds the small township of Tibooburra. This allotment was set aside for use by residents to spell their horses or keep a milking cow or goats. The common is still used by residents this way today. Locals and visitors also like to explore here and fossick for gold. Relics of Aboriginals and prospectors of days gone past can also be found when exploring. Please take only photographs and leave only footprints. And prospectors, please fill in your holes.
- Camping is not permitted on the common
- Permits are required for fossicking and are available from all businesses and hotels in Tibooburra at $10 per month or $50 for an annual permit
- Common Rangers run regular patrols so be sure to carry your current permit

Follow the signs north on the Silver City Highway aka the Warri Gate Road. The turn off is to the east. You can’t miss it.

tibooburra sports club
Formed in the mid 1950s by a group of people who formed a Trust to hold land for sporting and recreational purposes for use by citizens and visitors alike. The Tibooburra Sports Club Inc holds its two-day annual Gymkhana / Rodeo on the NSW Labour Day long weekend.
Come along and watch the fun or sign up for a steer ride.
New Years Eve celebrations are held here too. A bikekhana and mini rodeo precede an evening of music, dancing and fireworks to ring in the new year.
Money raised from these events goes back into the club and community.
