The Queensland Outback hub of Winton is located between Longreach and Mount Isa. There are plenty of things to do in Winton to keep you busy for a few days while you’re visiting. Some of them are free, including the Musical Fence and Arno’s Wall. The largest tourist attractions around Winton are the Waltzing Matilda Centre and two pieces of Australia’s Dinosaur Trail – the ‘Age of Dinosaurs’ and the ‘Dinosaur Stampede.’ You’ll be kept busy exploring all that Winton has to offer in Outback QLD. We primarily stopped in Winton to do the Australian Age of Dinosaurs, but were surprised to find much more than a Museum on offer! >PIN IT For Later<
About 60km north of Hughenden, is the spectacular Porcupine Gorge National Park. This natural phenomenon features levels of sedimentary rock spanning over hundreds of millions of years. Some even call Porcupine Gorge the “mini Grand Canyon of Australia.” The walk down isn’t too strenuous, although it is very steep, so coming back up will take a lot more out of you. Be sure to pack lunch, hat, water and swimmers so you can get the most out of your walk down into Porcupine Gorge. There is camping onsite with a toilet. >PIN IT For Later<

Exploring Sawn Rocks, Narrabri NSW was really something else. We felt like tiny creatures walking around the bottom of what felt like a giants world. Hidden in the Mount Kaputar National Park is the mind-blowing rock formation, infamously known as Sawn Rocks, Narrabri NSW. We were in absolute awe at this natural phenomenon as we walked around the base of the rock face amongst the giant broken pieces. Many people compare the structure to organ piping because it really does look like a massive wall of giant organ pipes. But I likened the broken pieces on the ground to humungous bits of honeycomb. Accessing Sawn Rocks is a via a 30-minute drive from Narrabri or a 50-minute drive from Bingara in rural New South Wales, Australia. 🏕️ >PIN IT For Later<
