Outback Queensland

Sleep under a starry sky, eat damper around a campfire and meet the locals in a pub. Outback Queensland is a unique and intriguing region. You can dig for million-year-old dinosaur fossils and watch camels race in the desert.

In the Outback you can visit a cattle or sheep station and learn how to muster and shear. Go fossicking for opals around Quilpie to Cloncurry.
