In the east of the park flood plains dotted with occasional trees give way to small rocky gorges and dry creek beds. The Olive Downs, or "jump-up" country is where the flat topped mesa rise up to 150 metres above the surrounding plains. Further west the gibber plains are replaced by the sandhills of the Strezlecki Desert. The Sturt National Park was used on an British documentary called "Planet Earth".
