Holidaying in Queensland’s Southern Outback isn’t just about roughing it in tents and lazing around a campfire. There is plenty of quality accommodation; great restaurants and cafes; and lots of options for luxury and pampering.
You can enjoy gourmet cuisine from award winning restaurants, steak and salad at the pub, or even authentic spit-roast and camp-oven cooking along the way. There are numerous cafes with great coffee and light meals as well. Or drop into Queensland’s most western winery for a glass of wine and a cheese platter in a parkland garden setting.
Accommodation options include historic hotels, luxury retreats, 3 and 4 star motels, caravan parks and cabins, and free camping options for the self-sufficient traveler. And while you’re in town, don’t forget to book in for a beauty treatment, therapeutic massage, day spa session, or a new hairstyle.
