General Information: 1

The Sturt Highway is 2 lane rural highway standard for most of its length and is named after Charles Sturt, who explored south western New South Wales, the Murrumbidgee and Murray rivers and also parts of the deserts of central Australia in the 1820s and 1830s.

The present Sturt Highway developed as a track along the bank of the Murrumbidgee River linking cattle runs in the 1840s.

Originally the area of the route was the territory of the Wiradjuri Aboriginal people, in whose language Wagga Wagga means 'place of crows'.

The Sturt Hwy is multiplexed with the following routes:
