Once a bustling gold mining capital, this tiny historic settlement on the banks of Evelyn Creek is now home to just a handful of people and a single pub. But Milparinka offers a fascinating glimpse of Outback life, with beautifully restored colonial buildings, atmospheric ruins and locals always eager to welcome a visitor.

See the Milparinka Heritage Precinct/Milparinka Courthouse; Albert Hotel in Loftus Street; the former police station that now serves as an art gallery, souvenir shop and tourist information centre. About 10km northwest of Milparinka a headstone marks the grave of James Poole, Sturt’s second-in-command on the ill-fated 1845 expedition in search of an inland sea. Sturt's Steps Touring Route follows the route taken by Sturt northward from Broken Hill during the expedition.

Built in 1882, The Albert Hotel was just one of four hotels in Milparinka at the height of the gold rush. Despite renovations through the years parts of the hotel remain as travellers would have found them more than a century ago.

Located just one kilometre off the Silver City Highway, The Albert is the only hotel remaining between Broken Hill and Tibooburra.

Accommodation can be found at the Milparinka Evelyn Creek Caravan and Camping in Tompson Street.
