What to see and where to stay

BIRDSVILLE | Wangkangurru-Yarluyandi Country

In outback terms, Birdsville is as remote as they come where the journey to Queensland’s most western frontier is all part of the adventure. Burke and Wills traversed this territory 160 years ago on their ill-fated journey and today you can still feel the same sense of unchartered territory.

While the town population may be small, the locals share a big backyard – 176,500km2 of the Simpson Desert (Munga-Thirri National Park) to be precise. The red, windswept hills that surround Birdsville can be discovered by four-wheel drive (and a sense of adventure) but nothing beats catching a sunset lightshow from the top of the famous Big Red Sand Dune.

We’re sure we’ll find you enjoying a beverage of two at Australia’s most iconic outback pub, the Birdsville Hotel. The icon has been a welcome refuge to travellers from across the globe since 1884.
