Roy’s Roundup for 21 August 2023

Last week I had the honour of unveiling a plaque at the opening of Sturt’s Steps, an amazing tourism trail in the Corner Country, NSW. This unique tourist experience uses signposted historic sites, artworks and a digital component to guide people around some of the areas visited by Charles Sturt on his 1844 expedition. Decades long in the making and involving some determined community members, like Ruth Sandow and Lori Modde (and a very long list of others) working with several government agencies, this is a great achievement. What they have created is a fascinating and spectacular journey across the outback, which will bring more tourists to this part of the world, which means more money for local businesses. This project also preserves historical sites, and celebrates local aboriginal history and culture, and much more. It is a win for everyone.

Well done to all who, like Sturt, had the vision, tenacity and persistence to make this a reality.

Sturt's Steps Touring Route was officially opened this week during a ceremony at Milparinka Post Office. The route approximates the journey taken by Charles Sturt when he searched for an inland sea in 1845. It connects about 1100km of sealed and unsealed roads from Broken Hill to Milparinka, Tibooburra and Cameron Corner to create a circular adventure experience for visitors. The project is owned by Milparinka Heritage & Tourism Association and received funding via Restart NSW and Infrastructure NSW with the support of the NSW Government.
