Cheepie

Cheepie is the friendly 'ghost town' of the Outback. The township formed when the railway first came through in 1914 and gradually grew to have a police station, blacksmith, railway station, tent boarding houses, butcher shop, bakery and two vegetable gardens. All that remains today of this once vibrant town is the old post office.

The township of Cheepie is located approximately 80 kilometres east of Quilpie on the Charleville Road. The water supply was firstly brought to town by train and stored in tanks but it was later taken from the nearby Beechal Creek, a tranquil oasis amid the arid backdrop. The Royal Mail was the first hotel in Cheepie, opening its door in 1926. Rural power was introduced in 1988.

Drive out onto the Adavale turn-off to see the contrast of endless white peaks amidst the flat red earth, local native wildlife and trees.
