Welcome to Birdsville
A very long way from anywhere, Birdsville is perhaps the ultimate outback icon, a remote, storied settlement on the fringe of the Simpson Desert, in the very inland corner of outback Queensland. Although the town itself carries a certain cachet, for many it's the journey to get here that gives Birdsville its charm. Reasons to come are many, from its iconic race meeting, to one of Australia's most famous pubs, to the experience of outback eternity that begins as soon as you leave the town limits. Birdsville occupies the country of the Wangkangurru and Yarluyandi Aboriginal peoples.
