A new Travellers Guide has been released, boasting even more to explore in the Queensland outback in 2022.

From dinosaur discoveries to luxury stays, the new Outback Queensland Travellers Guide unveils 22 must-do experiences in 2022.

Outback Queensland Tourism Association CEO Denise Brown launched the Travellers Guide, filled with new attractions and events, itineraries and exclusive insights to help travellers plan their next holiday.

“Outback Queensland had a bumper tourism season last year, but we’ve got more in store for those with the travel bug this season,” Ms Brown said.

“The La Nina rains have breathed new life into the free-flowing rivers, the ecosystem is flourishing and it shows with an abundance of birdlife and fish aplenty, the sights are truly astounding.

“Outback Queensland is an epic holiday destination.”

Outback Queensland Tourism Association Chairman and Blackall-Tambo Regional Council Mayor Andrew Martin echoed Ms Brown’s sentiment.

“There are some outdated perceptions of the outback that it’s all just red dirt and unsealed roads, but this is far from the truth which many Queenslanders have discovered,” Cr Marti said.

“It’s accessible to all and there’s a plethora of new experiences on offer each year.

“We’ve experienced some unnerving years and we’re excited to be on the road to recovery in the tourism industry, however the main challenge is to ensure travellers continue to explore the outback to help keep our local business and operators thriving.”
