Queensland's Outback

Corfield


Description

A tiny historic Outback town it may be, with its resident population of seven, but it has a big heart. A former Cobb and Co Coach staging point, Corfield is the social centre for local graziers and their families. The Corfield Pub identifies this small community, which is dependent on the cattle and sheep industries along with some tourism.

Corfield has a rich history with links to the Great Shearers' Strike. But the latest claim to fame is probably its proximity to the dinosaur skeleton of a 20 to 30 tonne sauropod that once grazed the area.

Corfield is located 83 kilometres north-west of the frontier town of Winton. Travelling the fully sealed Winton to Hughenden road you are likely to be greeted by the tumbleweeds.

Play a game of tennis, get a cricket match going on the local cricket pitch or just relax in the hospitable atmosphere. Magical moments can be experienced viewing the incredible sunsets, sitting under the night sky, enjoying a brilliant view of the stars, moon, and the occasional passing unidentified flying object.

The Corfield Races are held each year at the beginning of August. There is plenty of room on site free of charge for caravan and tent dwellers or just roll out your swag. Stay overnight and enjoy a full evening of entertainment with music and the Quickshears Competition. A recovery session the next morning encourages overnighters to rally and join the locals as they celebrate the success of the previous day.

A less formal event but equally entertaining and welcoming, is when the Western Picnic Race Club conducts a two day event around April. At these races you will experience flag starts and a mix of amateur and professional jockeys.

Experience adventure, country life and outback hospitality in this remote rural community.
