Where the desert meets the Channel Country
One of Australia’s most famous outback towns is found in the Diamantina Shire – Birdsville.
The legendary town’s races have long been on the bucket list for adventurers, synonymous with having made it FarOut. But the former ghost town of Betoota (yes it’s a real place not just a satirical news service), and township of Bedourie won’t be over shadowed. Tourism, and organic beef are the biggest industries in this region.
