Birdsville and Far West

Far West Diamantina Channel Country is the final frontier of Outback Queensland – a vast landscape of gibber flats, waterholes and roaming brolgas. And it attracts thousands of adventurers every year.

Outback bucket list

Explore the Simpson Desert (Munga-Thirri National Park) by 4WD and stand on top of the world at Big Red with a glass of bubbles at sunset. If you don't mind sharing, go mid-year for the Birdsville Big Red Bash and see a famous Australian band. Meet the locals at the famous Birdsville Hotel and camp under an aircraft wing after backing a winner at the iconic Birdsville Races. Stand on Cameron Corner where Queensland meets the New South Wales and South Australian borders.

Great outdoors

Spot pelicans at the largest breeding area in Australia at Lake Machattie and set the GPS for Bedourie or Boulia to watch camels race. Roll out a swag in Diamantina National Park and keep your eyes out for the mysterious Boulia Min Min lights.
