Discover Your Local South West QLD Area
South West Queensland is a thriving agricultural region, home to sheep, cattle, grain, cotton and forestry industries. Not only this, it is a serene outback region offering tourists many attractions to see and activities to take part in.
When you visit the outback you can expect a remote, peaceful region, and that is exactly what you get in South West Queensland. Spend your days amongst nature with bushwalks, fishing and picnics. Star gazing is a popular tourist activity in the region as you will get uninterrupted views of the stars above. The Cosmos Centre and Observatory in Charleville is the best place to come for your star gazing!
Cunnamulla, situated next to the Warrego River and the Matilda Highway is just one town in the region worth a visit. Discover Aboriginal art and learn about early settlement in the region. Quilpie, a mining and opal town, is another fascinating town with a rich history. With three opal sites in town, you are sure to find a unique, coloured opal to call your own.
Walk, fish and discover the unique history of South West Queensland. Be sure to check out the local guides before you visit as there are always events being held in the region including The Charleville Cup in November and Music in the Mulga which is a huge country music event held in May.
