Outback and Country Life

Nowhere else but the Outback can you sleep under star-studded skies, bond with a bushman over a beer, dig for million-years-old dinosaur fossils and watch camels race against the clock. 

  • Visit a working cattle or sheep station and try your hand at mustering, shearing or campdrafting
  • Fossick for gems from Quilpie to Cloncurry and you might find yourself some boulder opal, amethyst or gold
  • Watch a purple and orance-hues sunset over the sand dunes of the Simpson Desert
  • Climb into a swag and camp out under the moonlight on the banks of an Outback River

These days it’s easy to get caught up in the productive buzz of the city and eat sleep and breathe your inbox. If you’re in need of less screen time, then a taste of the country life might do you some good. Hightail it to your closest farm stay and make friends with the farm animal.
