Tibooburra, Outback NSW

Corner Country Visitors Guide 2020

Tibooburra,  Corner Country, Outback Australia

There is something impossibly romantic about Tibooburra; there it is in the far north-western Corner (Corner Country) of New South Wales.

There is conjecture around the true origin of the name of the town. Pretty consistent among them is that the name means 'heaps of rocks' or 'place of stones' in the language of the local Wangkumara and Maljangapa peoples.

  • One interpretation suggests that the name derives for a story about how "two men came from Innamincka and asked people for rainstones. They were refused and mocked and in revenge sent a hail storm that turned everyone, including themselves, to stone."
  • Another story tells of three upright rocks, known as the 'Three Brothers' which were said to be three ancestors of the Wangkumara tribe turned to stone for marrying women from another tribe.
  • A more modern version is that the town name refers to the ancient granite tors that surround the village, the goldfields of the Tibooburra region was initially known as "The Granites" and formed part of the Albert Goldfields.
