Outback Queensland Accommodation
Motels, Inns & Hotels
Outback Queensland is a vast area that could nearly fit most of Western Europe within. The region’s excellent transport infrastructure makes it one of the best places to experience the ‘real’ Australia.
Out here in the outback you’ll find clear, starry nights, brown desert plains, cattle stations, small town pubs and some glorious national parks.
Iconic regional towns like Birdsville, Longreach and Mt Isa are a long way from just about anywhere, while regional hubs like Roma and Emerald are only a few hours’ drive from the east coast.
If you’re out to see `true blue` Aussie towns then take a look at the accommodation areas below and start making your way to the outback.
