7 ways to beat the heat and stay safe in Outback QLD this summer.

With summer fast approaching and temperatures soaring, we thought there’d be no better time to give our local advice on 7 ways to beat the heat and stay safe in Outback QLD this summer! The heat can be relentless and it’s hard to know what you can do to cool down and stay safe but here’s how.

Keeping cool:

Cool off with a dip in one of outback Queensland’s natural swimming pools.

Outback QLD is filled with beautiful rivers, creeks and waterholes, perfect to jump right in on those summer day’s. Lucky for us the best one is right on our door step! Cunnamulla is located right on the banks of The Warrego River. You can fish, swim and kayak along the river and there are some beautiful spots to perch to watch the sunset. It is a great spot to escape the heat but we recommend trying to stay out of the sun during the middle of the day. Enjoy a morning or afternoon swim instead!

If you’re travelling further north in Outback QLD, 700km North of Cunnamulla to be exact, you will find Longreach Waterhole. Another great spot to escape the heat and jump in for a swim. Another two hours north and you can enjoy Long Waterhole in Winton. Both are worth a visit and an ideal spot to take a dip! The maps below highlight their locations from the town centres.

Further into the centre of Australia, Birdsville, has two exceptional spots to dive in and cool down. Birdsville sits right on the banks of the Diamantina River, you can swim, fish and kayak here, it’s full of adventure! If you would like to try an authentic outback experience, you can swim in a billabong in Birdsville! ‘Birdsville Billabong’ is easy to find, located on the edge of town, near the Caravan Park. You can refer to the map below for additional details.

Enjoy a nice cold beer.

This seems to be a common theme of our blogs, we aren’t surprised! As always we know the perfect spot where you can enjoy an ice cold beer, Club Boutique Hotel. Peieta, owner of Club Boutique Hotel loves having a chat about Cunnamulla’s history and all there is to know about the outback! Club Boutique hotel even offers a perfect beer for the occasion “Cunnamulla Characters Brewed” The range of craft beer replicates some legendary Cunnamulla personalities into unique flavours, certainly an experience we recommend! Of course we’d suggest staying a while in Cunnamulla too. If your continuing your outback Queensland travels beyond Cunnamulla you can check out of blog on ‘Outback Queensland’s most iconic Hotel’s and Pub’s!‘ we think you’d be wild not to stop for a cold beer at these beauties!

Enjoy some of the incredible indoor activities outback QLD has to offer.

The easiest way to beat the heat and stay safe in Outback QLD this summer, is to stay in doors. There are plenty of wonderful indoor activities available to keep you entertained!

The Cunnamulla Fella Centre and Art Gallery is located at Cunnamulla’s Visitor information centre on Jane Street. It is a great place to start, you can learn about the history of the Cunnamulla and the story of the Cunnamulla Fella. You can also grab additional information about the town and surrounding areas while you’re there!

The Waltzing Matilda Centre in Winton, is a must visit tourist spot and a great activity to get out of that heat! There are many things to see and do at the Waltzing Matilda Centre, including viewing of the art and photography exhibitions, dining at the cafe, browsing the Qantilda Museum and of course learning the history of the Waltzing Matilda song. Winton is also home to the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum. It is a wonderful family day out where you will learn and discover the history of dinosaurs in Australia!

The Qantas Founders Museum Longreach is another wonderful family friendly location where you can avoid the sun and heat on a summer day while still enjoying a day exploring! It is home to a world-class museum, cultural displays, interactive exhibits and even Qantas aircraft tours.

Take a Nap

One of our favourite ways to stay out of the mid day heat is a snooze. Not only is it relaxing and refreshing but you will be out of the sun and heat in the hottest part of the day! This would be my pick!

Staying safe in the heat:

Seek shade shelter when you can.

The sun in Australia is extremely hot and can be dangerous if you are in it for long periods of time. It is important to try and seek shade or shelter throughout the day to stay cool, avoid getting sunburnt, dehydrated or over heated. This particularly applies in the middle part of the day, when the sun is strongest. The best place to stay cool is under a big shady tree! Alternatively, try and schedule some of the indoor activities, mentioned above, for the mid day heat!

If you’re hiking, stick to the cooler part of the day.

Hiking at the best of times is hot! If you plan on doing some hiking on your trip to outback QLD, leave early in the morning or late afternoon. It is far to hot to be hiking through the middle of the day. It can be very dangerous, you need to keep cool and hike only at appropriate times.

Luckily it has been abnormally mild lately and we have not really had any hot days. So if your were planning on doing some hiking our recommendations are, the Cunnamulla Bushland gardens, Cunnamulla Sandhills, Cunnamulla sewerage estuary and Cunnamulla Warrego River Walk. The sun rises at 5am and sets late in the evening around 7pm allowing for some excellent morning or afternoon hiking weather and temperatures!

Travelling in the Heat

Staying safe on the roads in the heat is important too. A good tip if you break down on outback roads is to never leave your vehicle no matter how long you are there. When people start looking for you it is often by air and a vehicle can be easily spotted from above, however a person in the scrub can not. Try to avoid sitting in your vehicle if you break down, hop out and find a spot under a shady tree nearby if possible. It is also important to carry excess water with you, just in case. Another great safety practice is to always keep in touch with family or friends to make sure they know your plans and where you are heading. However, remember not to rely solely on technology as in many parts of remote areas there is limited to no service.

Be prepared

The most important advice is to be prepared for the heat! Sun protection is essential, a hat, sunscreen and light clothing will be helpful in protecting you from the suns rays. A fly net is also a good addition as the flies can be relentless in summer!!

We hope these 7 ways to beat the heat and stay safe in Outback QLD this summer are helpful and make for a more enjoyable journey!! Safe travels.

8 places you can camp in Cunnamulla and surrounds.

There are plenty of ways to travel to outback, 5-star luxury resorts, budget accommodation, caravanning, and of course camping! It might be the least luxury way of travel, but we think it’s a great way to experience the outback for everything it is! To make your travels to Cunnamulla easier we have put together a list of 8 places you can camp in Cunnamulla and surrounds.

1. Club Boutique Hotel

We know that camping isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Which is why Club Boutique Hotel offers luxury camping, in the form of GLAMPING! Our glamping tents are a one of a kind, glamorous outback experience. Not only do you get to swap out a swag for a bed, but you get added luxuries like, soft cosy linen, WI-FI, a snack fridge and of course a totally instagramable boho inspired bell tent to sleep in. You can book our glamping via the book now button on our glamping page . If you’re looking for a bit of extra information on glamping, you can refer to our “5 places you can glamp in the outback” blog.

If that is still not quite lush enough for you, you can try Club Boutiques 1- and 2-bedroom luxury suites and we are positive they will be the perfect amount of comfortable and indulgent. We have every type of traveller covered, that’s for sure. You can book any of our accommodation options here. We understand that some prefer the simple (or rougher) life and that is why we have popped together this list of 8 place you can camp in Cunnamulla and surrounds.    

Getting to Club Boutique is easy! We are located at 15 Louise Street Cunnamulla. You can refer to the map below for our exact location. We have also included a picture of Club Boutique from the road so you know what to look for.

There are many different styles of camping, rugged bush camping in a swag or tent, sleeping in a van, and of course caravanning! Caravan Parks can often make it feel like you aren’t camping at all, they have great cooking facilities, the option for power, usually a shower and are often close to the town centre. They are a perfect option if the ‘swag under the stars’ on the side of the road isn’t for you! There are 3 caravan Parks included in our list of 8 places you can camp in Cunnamulla and surrounds, all with fantastic facilities and with their own notable qualities.

2. Cunnamulla and Warrego Riverside Tourist Park

Warrego River Tourist Park is located right on the Warrego River at 322 Weir Rd, Cunnamulla. The river is one of the most picturesque landscapes in Cunnamulla and surrounds, and the caravan park is no different. It recently went under some renovation and is now home to some of the most fantastic facilities and amenities we’ve seen at a caravan park! The grounds are littered with lemon, pomegranate, limes and Kumquats trees. The gardens and lawns are perfectly manicured. Gorgeous roses and an array of herbs such as rosemary, chives, and basil for your picking. The caravan park is located about 3km from the town centre, you can view the map below for some directions. You can also find further information and booking details on the official website.

3. Cunnamulla Tourist Park and Cabins

No. 3 of 8 places you can camp in Cunnamulla and surrounds is Cunnamulla Tourist Park and Cabins. Located closer to the town centre of Cunnamulla, at 65 Watson Street, it’s a great spot if you prefer walking the town! They offer powered and unpowered sites as well as cabins if you prefer a night indoors. They have plenty of facilities including BBQ’s, a laundry, camp fire, free WI-FI, and a camp kitchen. You can refer to their website for booking and prices. The map below will provide you with accurate directions to the Caravan Park.

The last caravan park we have included on the list is Cunnamulla Cabins and Caravan Park. Also located closer to town, a spacious and budget caravan park with powered, unpowered sites including some with ensuite showers. Additionally, they have the option of $10 bush camping if you’re looking for a cheap and convenient spot to set up.  You will have access to facilities such as the camp kitchen, BBQ area and fire pit. If you are interested in upgrading for the night, they also offer a variety of budget rooms, cabin’s, cottages and motel accommodation. You can browse the different types of accommodation, available dates and booking details here

79 Emma Street Cunnamulla

Not everyone is a rugged camper, but we would recommend trying it at least once! You can’t beat the serenity of a secluded campsite or sleeping under the stars! We’ve included a few spots that are a little less luxury and a little more outback style in our list of 8 places you can camp in Cunnamulla and surrounds. Have a look below;

5. Mannbo’s Find

Can’t get much more basic than this! Located off the Mitchell HWY, Coongoola, QLD (map below) is Mannbo’s Field. Put simply it’s a red dirt field with plenty of trees and shrubs. It is the perfect place for an outback experience under the stars. Off the beaten track, peaceful and quiet, and the sky filled with stars, a place only for the adventurous! There are no facilities at this campground so you must be self-sufficient. It is important to leave the site as you found it, making sure to take your rubbish with you. The grounds are free to stay, pet friendly and accessible to motorbikes, RV’s, camper trailers and caravans . It won’t be the perfect spot for everyone but certainly for those bold enough to try a real outback camping experience!

6. Bowra Wildlife Sanctuary

Bowra Wildlife Sanctuary is located about 17km North-West of Cunnamulla. We have included exact directions and an accompanying map below to make finding the site as easy as possible. First things first, Bowra Wildlife Sanctuary is only open from March to October each year. It is most commonly used by keen bird watchers from across the country. Bowra Wildlife Sanctuary is home to over 200 species of bird life! A full list of bird species is provided at the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary offers powered and unpowered sites, caravan sites, cooking and amenity facilities. Alternatively, you can stay in the sheering quarters which accommodates up to 11 people in 6 bedrooms. Bookings are essential at Bowra Wildlife Sanctuary and should be done in advance. You can call the team on (07) 4655 1238 or you can read further information and book via the website here

Keep an eye out on Club Boutique Hotel’s blog page in the coming weeks for an additional blog spilling on the best places to go bird watching in the Cunnamulla area.

7. May’s Bend

May’s Bend is 11km North of Bourke, a little on the outer region of Cunnamulla. However, we thought it was a notable addition considering last week’s blog was a 7 day itinerary from Sydney to Cunnamulla. With Bourke featuring as an included stop-over point. This may just be the campsite you were looking for on the journey. May’s Bend is a free campsite that is accessible to all vehicle types. Tent camping is permitted, and it is pet friendly as well. The campground is located right on the Darling River making for a great swimming spot to cool off in, fishing is also allowed. Additionally, you can enjoy a fire and there is plenty of birdlife to watch here too! There is no drinking water available so ensure you have enough before setting up camp. Directions from both Bourke and Cunnamulla are outlined on the maps below.

8. Charlotte Plains

Finally, our last campground to make the list of 8 places you can camp in Cunnamulla and surrounds is Charlotte Plains. You may be familiar with Charlotte Plains already as it features on this year’s outback QLD tourist magazine with the below iconic image.

Charlotte Plains is a family owned and operated sheep station 45km East of Cunnamulla, they offer powered and unpowered sites or the option of the shearer’s quarters with 8 rooms available. One of Charlotte Plains notable facilities is the porcelain bath aka artesian baths, located on the property. You can sit and soak in the mineral enriched water spilling from the artesian bore. A truly iconic and unique experience to the Outback. You can find out more information on charlotte plains here.

Lastly, we would like to recommend a wonderful tool if you are camping your way around Outback QLD or camping anywhere across Australia. Some of the more rugged / less developed campgrounds on this list were found via the Wiki-Camps mobile app. This app provides you with exceptional information on thousands of camping spots across Australia, many of which are free to stay at. You can search via location and are able to download the maps to use offline which is perfect for when you are looking for campgrounds in the outback. The app is a once off payment of AUD$7.99 and may be a worthwhile investment if you are a regular camper looking for different campgrounds around Australia.

Cunnamulla Easter

Top things to do around Cunnamulla over Easter Weekend

Cunnamulla the town of living history and untold stories

April and Easter the perfect time of year for Cunnamulla the Outback and Outdoors!

Easter is always a special time of year for me. Not because it’s Easter but I totally love the weather at that time of the year. For me I think it’s the perfect time to enjoy Cunnamulla and Outback Queensland. The temperature while cooler in the mornings and later at night is beautiful during the day. Warm enough for a swim in the day and cool enough to enjoy a campfire at night even if it is just for looking at. Two necessities are insect spray as we have had a flood in the river and the sand-flies are breeding. The other is a fly veil as flies are particularly friendly now.

Great Read over Easter Holidays

Good read over Easter Unforgiving

If you are looking to wind down and relax with a great book over Easter weekend we must recommend “Unforgiving” The story of the life and death of Sam. The author is mother Carmel Beresford. Described by Brunette Lenkic* as …’a compelling tale with strong filmic elements..Unembellished language allows the reader’s focus to remain on the dramatic story. The author is especially good at evoking sadness; the raw emotion expressed in the part following Sam’s accident is especially moving. Although it is unusual for the dramatic high-point to occur so early in a memoir, there are confronting revelations in the rest of the work that balance it out. This manuscript tells a powerful story.’

Copies are available for purchase at Club Boutique Hotel Cunnamulla as well as Cunnamulla Newsagency and at Ellie's News Quilpie.

You can also order directly from the author for $39.99 including postage. Order Now!

Book Review: Unforgiving - The story of the life and death of Sam.

I first read the manuscript of Unforgiving when Sam's mother Carmel Beresford sent it to me last year. I don't know Carmel and, at the time, I was editing Bush Docs with a deadline looming so I shouldn't have even read it but I remembered hearing of Sam's accident back in 2011 and I was curious. Once started, I couldn't not finish...

I read Carmel's newly published book again last week. It is, first and foremost, a love story about an engaging bush lad who clearly still owns the heart of his mother. While it was clearly her intent that the reader should know, I did feel as though I had intruded into her very personal relationship with her youngest son. It felt like a privilege on some level but, just as it did the first time, it left me feeling a bit unsettled.

Unforgiving is also an uncompromising, brutally honest recollection of Sam's terrible accident, subsequent death and the aftermath of that tragedy. It is easy to read but it is, by no means, an easy read. It is a confronting but very compelling glimpse into the often challenging, sometimes funny and occasionally terrifyingly harsh reality of one family's life in remote SW Queensland.

Once again, I couldn't stop reading it...

Details for purchase below...

Krysta Cini to Unforgiving - The Story of the Life and Death of Sam

Having a rum while reading this incredibly heartbreaking yet exceptionally well written book. Only thing missing in this picture is the box of tissues I have been through!

The love and strength Carmel Beresford shows in writing and publishing this book is admirable.

Jo Emery

This is a story no mother should ever have to share. One that describes how her baby was taken not by the hands of fate but by the careless hands the family held as friends and in trust. Carmel Beresford shared her draft manuscript with me some time ago, leaving me with not only the deepest of sorrow but the greatest of hope that truth could be found in the most harsh yet most beautiful landscape of Queensland. I’ve held Carmel in the highest regard as a professional and mother, giving her life to the children in the outback, their families and the land. I hope that Sam’s story brings rain to a drought for not one family, but the many his story will touch. Australian Story

If you have read the book please leave a review, we would love to hear what you think!

Trow a Rug on the Warrego River Banks

As Good Friday is a day where most if not all shops will be shut it’s a great day to throw a picnic rug out on the banks of the Warrego River.  Look for mussels in the mud banks, fish and even yabbies’ to create your own Good Friday feast.

As kids, we would be kept busy for hours searching in the muddy banks of the Warrego for mussels. Catching yabbies’ are also a fun activity for all the family either with a piece of meat tied to a string, with a pot or if you’re tough enough bare hands in the rocks.

Once you have your catch there is a range of ways to cook but if you’re looking to not have much washing up and want to try something different we have a tip.

Pack mud around fish and bake it straight on the hot coals of a campfire.

Once cooked peel the mud off and the skin peels off at the same time leaving the beautiful white flesh.

Spuds are also great wrapped in foil and baked on the coals.

Be sure if you start a fire that you clear the surrounds. Always put out the fire with water as burying a fire often causes severe burns to the next person that comes along. This is most important in the outback as the dense hardwood timbers like Gidyea will remain hot for days.

Get a bit of Salt Bush from the Bushland Gardens.

Include the Fishing holes’ info and maps.

Darby Land Bridge Cunnamulla Eastern Side

Travel through Cunnamulla on Louise Street which will take you directly towards Thargomindah.

Just before you approach the bridge there is a driveway on the right-hand side of the road where you can drive onto the riverbank and fish.

Darby Land Bridge Cunnamulla Western Side

Travel through Cunnamulla on Louise Street which will take you directly towards Thargomindah.

Drive across the bridge and you will see a road directly on your right as you cross.

Take that road and park your vehicle around the tree.

Allan Tannock Weir

Travel along Louise Street and turn left into Garden street (Follow the Warrego Riverside Tourist Park Signs).

Travel past the Cunnamulla Cemetery on your left and follow Weir Road for about 4km.

You will eventually arrive at the weir.

There are many spots both up and down the river where you can fish. 

You may see the locals in the water scooping however we do not recommend as it is extremely dangerous.

If there is water over the weir do not attempt to drive across or you could be in some trouble.

You could also catch yabbies’ in the weir area over the rocks.

Be sure to ask a local and most would be happy to help you out.

You may even find the odd one that will give you part of their catch so be friendly and don’t be shy, it’s not the Outback way.

Cunnamulla Water Tower

The Cunnamulla water tower is currently involved in a massive transformation as artist Guido Van Helten paints a full-size mural around the entire tower.

Each day his vision evolves and sets tongues wagging and cameras on auto pilot as locals and travellers express their thoughts on the work of art.

Local resident Chris Mills said, she can’t wait to see what evolves on the part of the tower that is clearly visible from where she has her morning coffee.

Cunnamulla Accommodation Live Australia’s Story with Tristan Evert

Cunnamulla Accommodation Story G’day everyone, my name’s Tristan Evert and I’m the newest addition to the Out the Back Australia team which includes the heritage Club Boutique Hotel top quality Cunnamulla Accommodation. I am a qualified journalist after completing a degree in journalism at Griffith University on the sunny, Gold Coast.  I was born and raised on the Gold Coast, however have enjoyed numerous travels west to Queensland’s Outback, with family in both Cunnamulla and Winton.  This fun outback travel has inspired me to share the many unbelievable, authentic outback adventures I have had.

I am passionate about sport and travel and I will use my skill and love of writing to take you on a journey to Outback Queensland to live Australia’s Story by unearthing the history.  On the way I will share the secret locations, the best adventures and the biggest characters Outback Queensland and Cunnamulla has to offer starting with members of my own family.

Full of knowledge that births from a rich history in the far reaches of the Australian outback.

It is quite amazing when you discover that two locations in Queensland’s Outback that are close to the heart of my family being Winton and Cunnamulla have strong links going back to the late 1800’s and here is a little about this Australian Story.

My great great grandparents, Catherine O’Rioden and William Robert Clayton were both drovers that toured the rugged landscape of Australia with regular routes from Wellington in New South Wales to Boulia in Queensland. Originally from Ireland, Ms O’Rioden boarded a ship in sight of Australia out of desperation, however was shipwrecked in the red sea. She was rescued and given a job in the North Gregory Hotel Winton when she met another Irish lady named Norah Howard who was the owner of the Boulia Hotel.  Later Mrs Howard wrote to Catherine inviting her to move to Boulia and work for her at the Boulia Hotel.  Catherine quickly accepted and made the journey to Boulia and this is where she met William Robert Clayton and married.

The pair called Bourke, Hungerford, Thargomindah and Cunnamulla home as they travelled constantly around, running hotels and droving cattle for themselves and others. At one stage they were droving 500 head of cattle towards Bourke when they ran into the legendary Sir Sidney Kidman,’ who offered them a fortune for their cattle.  Over the years they had many encounters with Sir Sidney Kidman as they drove cattle for him and sold him a property they owned including Currawinya which is now a national park and great tourist attraction.  My great Grandmother often recalled conversations between her father and Sir Sidney with one being a tongue lashing to her father as her brother Bill was riding in a saddle with a broken tree.  When you hear stories of the legendary Sir Sidney Kidman you instantly get an image of a big strong man however Gran often recalled that Sir Sydney had a really squeaky voice and was small.

Born in Bourke, my great grandmother Margaret Clayton (nee Emery) grew up on the droving trails, sleeping under the stars every night, a real kid of the outback. There were not many if any luxuries and they made a new camp every night which was deemed upmarket if there was a kitchen made from Gidyea posts and old kerosene tins.  In school we were taught history that often included bushrangers however my great Grandmother Margaret and her mother actually lived much of Australia’s Story and would often reminisce about having tea with the Mrs Hall, the wife (or ex wife) of famous bushranger Ben Hall.

A regular route was from Bourke to Thargomindah via Hungerford and back in those days Hungerford the town located on the boarder gate between New South Wales and Queensland had two hotels.  Margaret was 15 and had just completed her schooling at the Catholic School in Bourke when her mother Catherine purchased the Commercial Hotel in Hungerford.  At the time it was busy with high numbers of drovers, shearers, bullockies, Cobb & Co Coaches and swagies making their way for work.  Today the hotel is long gone and only the Royal Mail Hotel stands in what has become an isolated and quiet place on the boarder gate.  This may well be where her granddaughter Peieta Mills drew her inspiration to re-open and renovate the historic Cunnamulla accommodation at Club Boutique Hotel that often hosted royalty.

At age 17 Margaret drew a Thargomindah property in a ballot and the family settled and worked it.  At the age of 26 Margaret Clayton married Steven Emery, from Thargomindah whom was known to everyone as Bub. The Emery family were know as mail contractors running mail trucks all around the district which was often referred to as ball bearing droving.  Together Gran & Grandad Bub had five children, Peg Campbell (nee Emery), Tom Emery, Elsie Burke (nee Emery), June Evert (nee Emery) who is my Grandmother and Chris Mills (nee Emery) who is Peieta’s mother.  In 1943 the family moved to Cunnamulla, where Bub began operating his own mail runs and developed a wool carting business. Margret became well known to all in Cunnamulla and was fondly called Gran by many. A true outback icon that spent her 96 years of life in the outback.

This diverse and extensive outback family history provides me with an extremely unique insight into outback culture, characters and life that I will enjoy sharing with my audience via my Tristan Evert Journalist articles. Full of amazing tales and adventurous stories, you will be left wanting more.

I come from a long line of country icons that have done some extraordinary things. I am an Evert and the Evert family were explorers, trail blazers and innovators with a passion for Australia, Outback Queensland and the Queensland town of Winton.   My great uncle Vince Evert was a visionary, originally the owner and picture show man, running one of the last open air theatres in Australia before furthering his enormous passion for open cut opal mining. He took the opal and travelled around the world, realising the enormous potential in over seas markets. He visited places like Japan and America showcasing opal and slowly creating the company now known as Evert Fine Jewellery. In the early days he would often bring people from all around the world to his fields and give them the outback Queensland experience, an early example of outback tours.

Vince, as well as his two brothers Neale and Peter are famous for promoting outback Queensland and they saw opal as an opportunity to bring people out. The trio journeyed all over the outback promoting tourism in their home town of Winton as the future that would keep the bush alive. No one believed Vince but he had tremendous vision and faith and because he was so highly regarded people followed his lead. Vince has since passed on but has a prestigious tourism award named after him, the Outback Tourism Queensland Association’s Vince Evert Award. Not only the Evert side of the family are prominent in outback Queensland, my other side of the family also hosts some quite spectacular outback figures and characters.

You can expect scandals, love, loss, war, peace, struggles, achievement, adventures, history characters and progress. Everything that makes the outback great, that unbreakable spirit, amazing country mateship and a never give up fight for survival.

Something that everyone should experience at least once in his or her lifetime. If you’re searching for an unbelievable, authentic outback adventure then come on this written journey with me until you are inspired to make your own booking into the Club Boutique Hotel the best Cunnamulla accommodation along the way. Meet the locals, experience nature and discover the wonderful secrets of Cunnamulla and Outback Queensland.
