I recently visited Birdsville for business reasons and was accommodated in the iconic hotel. As a seasoned traveller to many parts of Queensland, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of rooms which is better than many outback pubs.
Motel rooms are clean and cool with easy access to the airport, information centre and post office.
The dining menu was extensive and suitable for this outback location. A highlight was the buffet breakfast which was plentiful and inexpensive.
