Whilst the map is a work in progress, this will help to understand where all the infrastructure is being placed for the project and help to also articulate the journey of Sturt's discoveries and activities. 


Sturts Steps involves the installation of many wayfinding and interpretation signs across the 1,100 klms to help tourists navigate and discover the region.

Sturt's Cairn

Stabilisation of the Cairn, interpretive signage and a walkway from the carpark to the Cairn to make it easier for visitors to climb to the top. 

Interpretation Centres

These centres will provide comprehensive information for visitors on their journey and add to the existing infrastructure in each location.

Fort Grey

Interpretation enhancements and visitor amenity at the Fort Grey conservation site including a giant Bilby Sculpture commissioned by an artist. 

Milparinka Enhancements

Clearing of built up silt and rubbish in the area and the enhancements to make it an Outback Oasis for visitors to Milparinka including the addition of Bed & Breakfast Accommodation.

Sculpture Trail

Sculptures will be commissioned for various key sites on the journey that are reflective of the nature, history and messages of the land.

Camp Kitchens

Camp Kitchens will be added to Milparinka & Tibooburra Campsites with a third under investigation (budget pending) at Sturt National Park.

Digital Application

In todays world the innovation opportunities that digital techology provides can enhance a visitors experience 10 fold, and this addition will do just that.
