Quilpie

A stay in Quilpie can be as busy or as relaxing as you wish. Picnic and fish at the Bulloo River or swim a few lazy laps of the pool. Enjoy the native bottlebrush trees and beautiful gardens around the district, and the stunning wildflowers (in season) throughout the surrounding countryside.

When you are ready for action, spend the day fossicking for opals, climb Baldy Top Lookout to admire the spectacular sunset or visit the Visitor Information Centre, Shire Gallery and Shire Museums.

Listen for names such as Tully, Durack and Costello, who were among the first settlers. Hear about the struggles during flood and drought and the hardship of isolation from the people who have experienced it on the interactive compact disc at the Quilpie Shire Museum.

Quilpie has all the necessities and many of the luxuries visitors may desire. Access the internet at the library to keep in touch with friends and family in air-conditioned comfort. You may come to Quilpie to admire the exquisite boulder opal in its hometown but there is so much more to do and see, so allow yourself plenty of time to take in the Quilpie Outback adventure.
