Things to See & Do
Mount Barkly: Turnoff 16km north of Ti Tree 125km dirt road leads to Willowra Community. Mount Barkly is a total of 132km requiring a turnoff 80km in near the Old Mount Peak Ruins.
Central Mount Stuart Historical Reserve: The cairn beside the road commemorates the naming of Central Mt Stuart, a hill about 12km to the north-west. Stuart believed he had reached the centre of Australia and actually named the hill Mount Sturt after his explorer friend. The ‘a’ was added at a later date perhaps due to a cartographic error but nonetheless provides a fitting tribute to the great explorer Stuart anyway.
