About Central West Region
There’s lots to love about the heart of the Outback.
Outback Queensland’s central west wears its history on its sleeve, proudly the birthplace of Qantas, Waltzing Matilda and Australia’s Labor Party.
Pioneering history is at its core of the central west and you can explore it by galloping horse-drawn stagecoach, sunset river cruises and live performances at the Stockman’s Hall of Fame.
For history that predates early settlers, the world’s largest collection of Australia dinosaur fossils can be found at the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum in Winton.
