The perfect place to discover what Outback Australia is all about. Tibooburra is a tiny community 335 kilometres north of Broken Hill. With an abundance of wildlife and wildflowers (in a good season). The town's main historic buildings, built of local stone, are the courthouse, and the two pubs, The Family Hotel (1882), famous for murals and paintings by some of Australia's most renowned artists, and the Tibooburra hotel (1882), with its wall of old hats. Family Hotel Murals - a few decades ago some artists, fascinated by the desert, came to the town to paint. Any flat surface was fair game and there are still original works by Clifton Pugh, Russel Drysdale, and Rick Amor on the hotel's walls. Tibooburra Keeping Place- the main attraction: perched on poles, a replica sculpture of the 27-feet long whaleboat Charles Sturt hauled across inland Australia on a wagon, with the intention of using it to row around the continents 'inland sea' (never found). Tibooburra Outback School of the Air - the only 'dual mode' school in Australia. Turn up in the morning to see the school in action. Old Tibooburra Courthouse - a museum, housing artefacts from an 1884 homestead and mining relics.
