Barcoo Shire Council

Barcoo Shire Council


Magical rock holes, scenic lookouts, the deepest of red sand dunes and, of course the lifeblood of the shire - the unique channel country. Holiday makers can choose to enjoy the wide open spaces uninterrupted by skyscrapers, or take in the hospitality and facilities of our small outback towns.

Barcoo Shire is the gateway to Birdsville, Bedourie, Innaminka, Quilpie or Longreach and Winton to the north.
