Thargomindah, QLD

Thargomindah is situated along the Adventure Way, and lies on the banks of the Bulloo River approximately 200 kilometres west of Cunnamulla, and 1,100 kilometres west of Brisbane. The road is sealed to Thargomindah, with only a 45-kilometre stretch remaining to be sealed to the historic Burke and Wills “Dig Tree” on Cooper Creek at […]

Innamincka, South Australia

Innamincka is nothing more than a pub (a good one with quality accommodation and above average outback meals), a general store, fuel pumps and an airstrip on the Strzelecki Track. It is located beside the mighty Cooper Creek and, being 464 km north of sealed road, is a natural stopping point for refuelling both car […]

Top 5 Stops on the Warrego Way

The Warrego Way starts in Brisbane and makes it way west to the iconic and remote Birdsville, deep in the Queensland outback. Along the way, you can see ancient trees from the dinosaur age, endangered mammals, unwind in the soothing waters of a sub artesian basin, delight in yarns told over cold beers in a […]

Birdsville, QLD

Once a notorious […]

Cordillo Downs Woolshed

There are two main routes between Birdsville and Innimincka – the locals use both, although this route – the Cordillo Downs track, is the preferred. The Cordillo Downs track is an interesting trek with worthwhile stops to explore ruins of old buildings. We suggest that this trek will take 2 days, that’s because the fatigue and stress of attempting to […]
