Park your caravan or pitch your tent at this peaceful place on desert grasslands, near Broken Hill and Tibooburra. Perfect for caravaners, families and self-sufficient remote campers, Teilta campground and picnic area makes a great base when exploring this vast, wide-open landscape.

Located near Teilta Homestead and the tree-lined banks of Teilta Creek, this land was once part of a vast outback station that began operation in 1865. Two decades earlier still, Charles Sturt explored this landscape on his quest for an inland sea.

Today you too can explore the fascinating geology and pastoral heritage of this area. Visit the rugged and rocky Barrier Ranges plateau or lose yourself in the red linear dunes of the Strzelecki Desert, the world’s largest dune field of this kind. Or simply relax and unwind at this small campsite in the stillness of the outback, immersed in endless 360-degree views.
