My wife and I stayed here in one of the comfy motel style units on 21 Sept '11. Now you must remember you're a fair way from a big city CBD, but this place had all we needed, and the town area had plenty to occupy the camera's shutter.
Definitely worth the effort to get here, and a pleasure to be able to share this part of our great outback with many friendly and informative locals who seemed happy to have a yarn.
Try to walk the perimeter of the town, visit the information centre, the Diamantina Lagoon / reserve, the racecourse, the geo-thermal area, also try to get out to the Waddi Tree area. Sadly we couldn't get out to see "Big Red" - but despite this, rest assured there's plenty to see and do around Birdsville.
