Birdsville Hotel - The Outback Loop

Birdsville, Diamantina Area

Indicative Rate * AU$165 to AU$190

The Birdsville Hotel is as remote as a place gets, standing since 1884 on the edge of the last untamed frontier, the Simpson Desert. The pubs name is forged into Australian folklore and everyday travellers make their pilgrimage to one of Australia's most treasured icons.

Whether you have driven for days or your aircraft has just landed on the airstrip next to the pub, you'll get the same warm outback welcome. Relax and soak up the true blue atmosphere, or sit up at the bar to hear a few yarns from old drovers, ringers and friendly locals.

In the first week of September the population swells from 100 to over 5,000 for the Birdsville Races. This legendary race has been run on a sandy track since 1882 and now boasts professionally trained racehorses and prize money of over AUD100,000.00.

For years, yarns have been spun at the Birdsville Pub, lubricated with icy cold beers, and here maps have been scratched into the red desert soil to guide travellers to special spots.

This is truly an authentic place where the spirit of Australian mateship is definitely alive and kicking.
