Flights & getting there
Rex flies into Windorah once a week on its stopping-all-stations way between Brisbane and Mt Isa.
Car & 4WD
Sealed roads connect Windorah and Quilpie, 247km to the southeast, and Longreach, 316km away to the northeast. Birdsville is 380km from Windorah and you'll generally need a high-clearance 4WD to make the journey, as much of the way is unsealed; although the road is graded on a semiregular basis, it gets especially rough after the Birdsville Cup or Big Red Bash. Contact the region's tourist information centres or call 13 19 40 for updated road conditions before setting out.
There's a petrol station opposite the Western Star Hotel.
