General Information:

The Sturt Highway spans 3 states: New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, 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 route consists of mostly 2 lane single carriageway, except in Mildura, which varies from 2 lane arterial standard and 4 lane dual carriageway.

A79 (Calder Highway) duplexes the Sturt Highway through Mildura for 2 kilometres.
