Bedourie

Bedourie meaning 'Dust Storm' is another historic Outback town, Bedourie started life in the 1880s as a major watering and rest stop for drovers and cattle. Cobb and Co coaches serviced the town.

Bedourie is an Oasis in the Desert. Bedourie is the administration centre of the Diamantina Shire Council. Covering 94690 square metres, it is the second largest shire in Queensland and is twice the size of Denmark. Excellent town facilities include motel, hotel with meals, cabins, caravan parks, restaurant and tavern, general store, fuel and auto services, police station, and a medical clinic.

A particular favourite is the 22 person therapeutic spa with the warm, fresh, crystal-clear water coming directly from an artesian bore. To soak up the historic atmosphere of Bedourie is a 'must do' experience. The Royal Hotel was first licensed in the early 1880s and has since traded continuously.

The famous Bedourie Camp Oven, invented in the droving camps of a bygone era, can still be purchased in town. In contrast to all the history, the modern Simpson Desert Oasis motel, ensuite caravan park and bar offer visitors every convenience.

Just a day trip from Bedourie is the fabulous Diamantina National Park, well known for its fishing (Hunters Gorge), birds, wildlife and scenery. Overnight camping is also permitted.

Bedourie is home to many events. In the second weekend in September, Bedourie hosts its annual race meet as part of the famed Desert Racing carnival. July sees the gymkhana, campdraft and rodeo and all the fun of camel racing draw a large number of sport loving visitors.

Permanent water in the nearby creek means numerous species of birds can be observed at Carcory Ruins. Cuttaburra Crossing is a renowned wetland area, with prolific birdlife.
