Outback Queensland

Covering the vast interior of the state, Outback Queensland’s ever-changing landscapes, charming towns, unique characters and fascinating stories are waiting to be discovered.

Reconnect with the land and walk the paths where dinosaurs used to roam, fossick for bones that date back 95 million years and participate in a professional dinosaur dig. Take the road less travelled and explore one of the many exciting 4×4 tracks. Get adventurous in the national parks and go for a hike, paddle your canoe or take a dip in one of the cool, refreshing waterholes.

If dining out is an important part of your story, Outback Queensland has plenty of top food options to keep you fuelled, and maybe a little fascinated. In fact, when touring Outback Queensland, make sure you bring your taste buds along for a unique foodie experience.

With a town every 100 to 300 kilometres, in Outback Queensland you are never too far from a friendly smile and comfortable place to rest your head. Pull up in one of the many caravan parks or camping sites throughout the region, or for that homely feeling, try one of the Bed and Breakfasts. Hotels and Motels offer everything from basic to luxurious rooms, or for a home away from home you can book a self contained unit.
