Big Red

Birdsville, Diamantina Area

Standing at 40 metres in height, and situated just 35km from Birdsville; this famous sand dune provides a challenge for any four wheel drive enthusiast. The first of 1,140 parallel dunes in the Simpson Desert, the spectacular sunsets from the top of Big Red are an experience not to be missed.

Bring a bottle of champagne and enjoy the sunset with family, friends or as part of a tour. Not to mention, if you're here for the 'Big Red Bash' or 'Birdsville Races' you'll share its beauty with hundreds of other locals and first time Outback travellers.
