Outback Queensland

If you like to explore precious stones, fossils, waterholes and Aboriginal art in abundance, the Outback Queensland is a great place to go. You can sleep under star-studded skies, bond with a bushman over a beer, dig for million-years-old dinosaur fossils and watch camels race against the clock.


At a Glance

Outback Queensland is a place to discover Australia’s pioneering history, scattered across the region are colourful towns that boast the tales of Australia’s heritage. Also, Outback Queensland is a region of rodeos and bush races, country pubs and characters, caravanning nomads, backpackers behind bars and bright orange sunsets. In the dry season, endless blue skies hover over stony deserts, matched only by the brilliant velvety clarity of the Milky Way at night.

In Outback Queensland, you can also dig up and dust off ancient dinosaur bones while travelling along the Dinosaur trail between Winton, Richmond and Hughenden. The World Heritage Listed Lark Quarry Conservation Park preserved the world’s best dinosaur stampedes' three-toed footprints.
