There is a popular saying among caravanners,
“ In by Mothers Day, out by Fathers Day”
It refers to the annual migration of travellers heading north for the winter. But, we think there is so much more to this region, so rather than rush through, we would encourage you to stop a little longer and take the time to explore.
Outback Queensland is a massive area that covers from Mt Isa in the North West down as far South to Cunnamulla, Far West to Birdsville and East to Biloela, with many iconic Queensland towns in between.

Whilst there are some well-known attractions along the way including the Stockman’s Hall of Fame @ Longreach, and the recently rebuilt Waltzing Matilda Center @ Winton there is so much more to offer which is what we want to showcase over the coming months.
Stockman’s Hall of Fame & The Waltzing Matilda Centre
With the help of OQTA we will be publishing articles about all the places of interest along the way, including many of the smaller towns you may not have heard of. We will link in with Outback Queensland and look closer at many of their experiences such as;
The Birdsville Hotel
More to Come
Over the coming weeks we will also be adding more accommodation options including Campgrounds, Caravan Parks & Free Camps to the FRC Directory and App, along with many local business that are supporting us by offering our Premium Club Members exclusive Offers & Discounts.
These include discounts at many Caravan Parks as well as tourist attractions including Tambo Teddies, The Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Eulo Artesian Mud Baths. With many more business jumping on board, there is no excuse to bypass outback Queensland.
