Sturt’s Boat Replica – TIBOOBURRA, NSW

STURT’S BOAT REPLICA

Sturt’s Boat Replica is located at Pioneer Park in Tibooburra, in Outback NSW.
 
It is a replica of the 27 ft long whaleboat that Sturt’s party carried with them by wagon on their expedition in 1844-1845. They were in search of “the inland sea”. 
  • Sturt also took with him a party of 15 men, 11 horses, 30 bullocks, 4 drays, 200 sheep and 6 dogs.
  •  They travelled along the Murray and Darling Rivers towards the now Broken Hill.
  •  They were stranded for months due to the extreme summer heat.
  •  The rain finally came and enabled the party to move further north towards the Grey Range.
  •  The party pushed further on until they reached the Simpson Desert but were unable to continue due to the extreme desert conditions and lack of water.
  •  They turned back to the depot and then eventually returned to Adelaide.
