Outback Top 10's

Choose your own Outback adventure

Where To Go


North West

Things can get wild in Queensland’s rugged North West. Visit the thriving mining town of Mount Isa, saddle up for the Mount Isa Rodeo, the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, and drop in at the historic Underground Hospital built during WWII.
Canoe through vivid red gorges in the Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park and search for ancient fossils in the limestone outcrops of Riversleigh World Heritage Area. Head to Hughenden to see 'Hughie', the seven-metre Muttaburrasaurus and an impressive fossil collection.
And, don’t leave without visiting the Porcupine Gorge National Park.

Far West

Queensland’s Far West is the place for adventurers. Explore the rugged Simpson Desert by 4WD, see the Big Red sand dune glow at sunset and watch thousands of migratory birds flock to the wetlands of the Diamantina National Park.
If you’re looking for outback entertainment, catch a famous Australian band at the Big Red Bash or back a winner at the Birdsville Races.

South West

The closest section of Outback Queensland to Brisbane, the South West is home to colourful characters, wedge-tailed eagles and boulder opals.
Bathe in mineral-rich mud at the Eulo Mud Baths, meet a tiny endangered marsupial at the Charleville Bilby Experience Centre and peer into the heavens at the Charleville Cosmos Centre.

East

Banana Shire has many natural attractions including gorges, rivers and National Parks such as the Glebe Weir and Expedition National Park. Visit Lake Murphy, Kroombit Tops and Mt. Scoria Conservation Parks, or relax at Isla and Cania Gorges.
The Dawson River and Callide Dam provide many opportunities for fishing and water sports. The Shire can also provide many adventures for the 4WD enthusiast.

Central West

The Central West is the heart of Outback Queensland, a place built by pioneers and stockmen. Visit Longreach, the birthplace of an Australian icon at the Qantas Founders Museum and learn about the region’s fascinating history at the Stockman’s Hall of Fame. Learn about Waltzing Matilda in Winton where the song was original performed.

Longreach Airport is on the edge of town, with flights arriving from Brisbane and Townsville. You can also catch the Spirit of the Outback train from Rockhampton.

Instagram post 17984480395362139 Have you been to Adavale?

Adavale is a small town approximately 100 kilometres north of Quilpie with a population of 19.

The name Adavale has been said to derive from the horse and buggy days when in 1870 a Mr Stevens, who later became Member of Warrego 1879 to 1922 and State Treasurer, was out driving with his wife when the veil from her hat blew away. It is believed he called out 'there goes Ada's veil' hence the crossing was Ada's Veil Crossing and subsequently today called Adavale.

Hot tip - drop into Elegant Emu @hello_emu for lunch or prebook their amazing high tea. Or if you're up for an adventure (and have a 4WD) continue north for another 69kms and explore Hell Hole Gorge National Park.

Instagram post 17989311469348225 Bedourie is an oasis in the desert and is located at the base of a sand dune surrounded by Eyre Creek.

It is one of three towns in the Diamantina Shire, covering 95,000 square kilometres, where only 14 stations and 283 residents make up this brilliant area of the sunshine state. 

The desert and the channel country combined with the teeming flora and fauna, make up one of the world’s most fragile and unique desert ecosystems.

Instagram post 17936254039476986 Switch up the views of the red dirt and endless horizons with a stay by the water at @larawetlands 

Park up on the banks and spend the days under the shady trees watching the birdlife, cattle, ‘roos and wallabies that call the wetlands home.

This caravan park is all about the relaxed outback life, with an Artesian hot spring available for you to fix those aching driving bones.

Although it’s also a working cattle farm, it’s a pet friendly property – but pooches are required to be restrained due to the wandering cattle.

From this Saturday, their highly anticipated Camp Oven Dinner kicks off and will be held weekly until August (RSVP’s are essential for catering purposes).

Instagram post 18209926639068655 Jundah, gazetted as a town in 1880, for 20 years the area was important for opal mining, but lack of water caused the mines to close. Situated on the banks of the Thomson River, is the administration centre for the Barcoo Shire. 

It's the centre of the Channel Country and its name comes from the Aboriginal word for women.

Instagram post 17888185967144796 The Tambo 'Wild and Woolly' Truck is a public art sculpture created by artist @christophertrotter and installed in Tambo.

The sculpture symbolises the region’s sheep shearing heritage and the experience of the huge road trains passing through town.

Built upon a 1944 Dodge front end, it uses discarded steel boxes from surrounding farms and more than 400 horse shoes sourced by the students of Tambo State School.

Instagram post 18148707574094901 Cooladdi may be one of Queensland’s smallest towns but it has a local that is a must visit.

The Foxtrap is the towns all in one store, accommodation, bar and post office.

Its name came from past owner Mr Bob Fox. 
Bob loved a yarn - legend has it that you would call in for a drink and leave two days later! - hence the name "Cooladdi Foxtrap"!

Known as the “Queen” and “Grand old lady”, the hotel has been a Winton resident since 1879. You can take a history lesson of the town by just looking at its walls.

It’s definitely not a rumour that Winton has been named as a finalist in @theqtic Top 'Small' Tourism Town?

Instagram post 17968330606384122 The End of The Railway line (or the start….depending how you look at things) is in Quilpie.

When the Railway arrived in Quilpie in 1917 the plan was that the line would continue on to Eromanga, however materials to build the line were hard to come by then due to war time sacrifices. Thus making Quilpie ‘The end of the Line’.

It's definitely not the end as Quilpie has been named as a finalist in @theqtic Top 'Small' Tourism Town?

Instagram post 17898435319901193 Here's your chance to hit the road, get the red dust under your tyres and really explore the outback with the @barcooway (509km). Who doesn't want to camp beside a billabong, 4wd across a claypan and reel in a champion Yellowbelly. 

Follow the mighty Barcoo west from its headwaters in the Great Dividing Range through to where it joins the Thomson River and flows peacefully into Cooper Creek. 

Trek along the river road skirting the tranquil billabongs of the famous Barcoo River. These backroads take you through the prime sheep and cattle lands of Blackall – Tambo and Isisford to the rocky outcrops of Yaraka and through to the corrugated red dunes of Windorah. 

Discover awesome National Parks and incredible raw landscapes. Get ready to 'Take the Drive'...

He stands tall and proud on the Stansfield/Gray street intersection in Hughenden. Mutt is a fibreglass full bodied Muttaburrasaurus replica standing about eight metres long and four metres high.

The first Muttaburrasaurus was discovered along the Thompson River in 1963 in Muttaburra, Central Queensland. Since this first discovery there have been several Muttaburrasaurus finds in the Outback Queensland including here in the Flinders Shire.

Make sure to pull up and take a photo with the gentle giant!

Pack a picnic to enjoy along the banks of the river and watch your little ones to play in the shallow water. Or bring your kayaks or SUP's and paddle your way down the river.

The best way to experience Nun’s Crossing is to make a day of it, sightseeing along the way with the Glenmoral Self Drive Trail. This 76 km trek from Theodore takes about one hour but this can vary if you stop to immerse yourself in the experiences along the way.

Once you’ve taken in the views of Glenmoral Range, the spectacular Glenmoral Gorge and the Dawson Mine you’ll arrive at Nun’s Crossing.
