Be the first to review

Birdsville Queensland is at the end of the Birdsville Track and is one of Outback Australia’s most recognised towns.

Deep in the heart of wild and isolated country, Birdsville is situated between the eastern edge of the Simpson Desert. The vast gibber plains of Sturt’s Stony Desert to the south and rich Channel Country to the north.

Once a notorious place through which cattle drovers moved their stock, Birdsville is now a thriving community. You can enjoy a cold drink at the Birdsville Hotel or try your taste buds on a curried camel pie. How about backing a winner at the Birdsville Races or dance the day away at the Birdsville Big Red Bash.

Watch the sunset over Big Red, the tallest sand dune in the Simpson Desert. You could also spend an unforgettable day with family and friends at the Birdsville billabong. Here you will find birdlife, fish, yabbies and marsupials abound.
