And even if you have been before, there’s always a lot more to explore.

Here’s our top 12 reasons why we love Outback Queensland:

  2. Quaint and quirky country towns alive with great characters and welcoming country-style hospitality.
  3. Dining delights – old-fashioned bakeries and great pubs.

  6. Wide-open spaces and fresh country air for kids to safely roam and explore. 
  7. Dinosaurs galore – Outback Queensland is the dinosaur experience capital of Australia. 
  8. Visit a real working cattle or sheep station and learn how our early pioneers and graziers have settled, and still manage life on the land in the outback.
  9. Sand dunes at sunset and watching the starry desert sky appear.
  10. Sinking into a relaxing artesian bath after a day of exploring – Outback Queensland offers luxuries as well as adventure. 
  11. Spending time connecting as a family: camping, bushwalking, campfires, spotting wildlife, running down sand hills – lots of outdoors time away from devices and screens.
  12. Beautiful waterholes all over the outback for cooling off, fun water sports, and great fishing.
