Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef travel guide

Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef - Journey's into the Outback (Chapter)

6th Edition Jul 2011

This is the Journeys into the Outback chapter from Lonely Planet’s Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef guidebook.

Australia’s mystical outback is less a place than a state of mind, and its mythical, spiritual power retains an inexplicable hold on this most urbanised of peoples. Geographically, it lies anywhere west of the Great Dividing Range. Yet to experience it can be elusive.

  • follow the dinosaur-fossil trail, including the prehistoric stampede at Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways and the fossil museums at Richmond and Winton
  • maps
  • make a short pub crawl of the iconic timber pubs of Barcaldine, stopping to admire the magnificent Tree of Knowledge memorial
  • transport
  • restaurants & accommodation
  • stare at the multitude of stars above Nardoo Station while soaking in a warm artesian spa with a cold beer in hand

Coverage includes: Charters Towers, Cloncurry, Mt Isa, Charleville & around, Winton & around, Longreach, Barcaldine, Charleville, the Channel Country, Birdsville & around, Birdsville Track and Simpson Desert National Park.
