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. But for a small community, Bedourie has some truly excellent facilities and is known as the administration centre of the Diamantina Region.
Bedourie is home to the famous ‘Bedourie Camp Oven’ which the Australian Government claimed significant and ‘uniquely Australian’ in 2001, and are sold at the Visitor Centre year round.
Visitors to Bedourie can relieve their aches and pains in the warm waters of the 22-person artesian spa in which the water comes from the Bedourie Artesian Bore drilled back in 1905. This is truly one of the unique attractions to visit on your Outback Queensland road trip to the Diamantina and the far west.
