Charles Sturt Memorial

Sturt Place, Narrandera 2700

Ph: 0269595545

The Charles Sturt Memorial commemorates the passing of this place in 1829 by explorer Captain Charles Sturt and his party on their epic journey along the Murrumbidgee River to discover an inland sea.

Local lore has it that Sturt marked a tree on the site of this memorial, which is situated at Narrandera on the northern bank of the Murrumbidgee River, just west of the Newell Highway at the entrance to the Narrandera Wetlands.
