Birdsville

  • Possibly outback Queensland's most renowned and remote town, the name Birdsville prompts thoughts of pioneering history and outback adventure in the 'back of beyond'. Once a toll point for stock crossing the Queensland and South Australian border, Birdsville had a pre-federation population of over 300.

These days, Birdsville is a thriving community of 115 people with a pub, bakery, caravan park, two service stations
