About Milparinka

Located 40 kms south of Tibooburra and 1465 kms from Sydney is the unique outback town of Milparinka. Gold was discovered in the 1870s and a rush commenced in 1880. By the mid-1880s the town boasted a police office, newspaper, chemist, blacksmith, photographer, two butchers, four hotels, a school, a hospital and a general store. But by the mid-1920s the golden years were only a memory. In the 21st century Milparinka has brought its boomtown years alive again with a heritage centre in the courthouse, a native plants park and a heritage walking trail.
