Dead Horse Gully camping area
Dead Horse Gully camping ground, set among enormous granite boulders, is about 2 km north of Tibooburra via the Silver City Hwy. The campground is close enough to pop into town for a dinner at one of the friendly outback pubs. Emus are a common sight in and around the camp. Wood fires are not permitted but there are gas/electric barbecues. There’s a short signposted walking track taking you through the unusual landscape – undertake the walk at sunrise or sunset and not only will the boulders seem to smoulder and glow, but you’ll also have a chance of seeing reptiles and roos. Bring your own water.

This campsite is located in Sturt National Park
Sturt National Park is one of Australia’s driest, most remote national parks. It’s a sea of sand, seemingly endless gibber plains, red rock and mulga bushes. Lake Pinaroo, near Fort Grey in the park’s east, was placed on the Ramsar list in 1996 – when it fills it is a significant refuge for large numbers of waterbirds and waders.
