Sturt National Park, NSW, Australia

Here a few photos taken at Sturt NP. It is a very large park, located in the north-western corner of NSW, roughly between Tibooburra and Cameron Corner. It preserves part of the arid interior of Australia, with sandy plains covered with grass and/or low shrubs, gibber country and granite outcrops. Note that some photos presented on this website are available FOR SALE.

View from the mesa at Jumpup Lookout to the south; in most years the lower country would be a clay pan, but after two consecutive years of good rainfall, there were plenty of grasses and shrubs

Example of scrub in an arid environment: Gidgee trees (Acacia cambagei) lining a dry creekbed in Sturt NP

The Shingleback is an animal that can often be seen on the road

One of the bird species that can be found in gibber country is the Australian Pratincole
