Welcome to Bedourie
Bedourie is the administrative centre for the huge Diamantina Shire. That may be its official title, but the reality for travellers is that it lies halfway between Birdsville and Boulia and is a tiny outback outpost where you can break up the journey. Coming from Boulia, it’s 192km south on a sealed road. From here to Birdsville, it's 191km, around 70km of which is unsealed (fine in a 2WD vehicle except after heavy rain). A big attraction is the free public swimming pool and artesian spa. The Karanja are the traditional owners of the land around Bedourie.
