Birdsville Hotel, Birdsville

The Birdsville Pub is as remote as a place gets, standing since 1884 on the edge of the last untamed frontier, the Simpson Desert.

The pubs name is forged into Australian focklore and everyday travellers make their pilgrimage to one of Australia’s most treasured icons.

Whether you have driven for days or your plane’s just landed on the airstrip next to the pub, you’ll get the same warm outback welcome. Relax and soak up the true blue atmosphere, or sit up at the bar to hear a few yarns from old drovers, ringers and friendly locals.

Spend a few days, take a tour of Birdsville Working Museum, relax and watch the spectacular sunsets, explore the Dingo Caves and rare Waddi Trees, get a bird’s eye view of the Channel Country on a scienic flight, walk around town and see the historic Royal Hotel ruins and Old Birdsville Courthouse or take a dip in the billabong.

In the first week of September the population swells from 100 to over 5000 for the Birdsville Races. This legendary race has been run on a sandy track since 1882 and now boasts professionally trained racehorses and prize money of over AUD100,000.00.

For years, yarns have been spun at the Birdsville Pub, lubricated with icy cold beers, and here maps have been scratched into the red desert soil to guide travellers to special spots.

This is truly an authentic place where the spirit of Australian mateship is definitely alive and kicking.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
