Queensland's Outback

Betoota


Description

Except for surrounding cattle stations, Betoota stands alone on a vast gibber plain. The Outback town is located 170 kilometres east of Birdsville and 227 kilometres west of Windorah. Betoota started as a Cobb and Co changing station and border town with its main income being derived from tolls and taxes. This source of revenue dried up on the establishment of the Federation.

Twice a year this ghost town comes alive with activity as locals and visitors alike arrive by plane, coach and motor vehicle to enjoy local events. On the first weekend after Easter it's a fun-packed weekend at the Gymkhana. On the third Saturday in September horse racing at the Betoota Track is the go. This is where you'll meet 'down to earth' Australians with a wry sense of humour!

Brown's Creek is a popular local camping area near the now deserted Betoota Hotel. Be sure to visit Deon's Lookout - a memorial to one of this country's sons with peaceful views of the land he loved.
