South-West Queensland

Right on the border with New South Wales and South Australia. Names like Injune, Roma, Surat, Mitchell, Charleville, Quilpie, Cunnamulla and Thargomindah evoke stories of the bush often heard over a coldie in a historic country pub. Watch the station horses race or drop a line in a billabong for that elusive yellow belly.
