Sturt National Park
Those desiring peace and solitude on their eco-holiday can camp among the rolling red sand dunes of the Strzelecki Desert. There are flat-topped mesas and spectacular jump-ups, granite tors and wide open spaces with red kangaroos and abundant wildflowers after rain. Four-wheel-drives are not needed in dry weather as there are loops for 2WD vehicles and 2WD campsites with free gas barbecues, but you need to bring your own water. You can also stay in bunk-style shearer’s quarters or the homestead at Mount Wood station, in the far south-east corner of the park.
