The Birdsville Pub (An Icon of the Australian Outback)

TomO and mate

The Birdsville Pub is synonymous with the Australian Outback and has been the watering hole for many a weary traveller, both in days gone by and still today.

And over many years of outback travel we have often gone out of our way to quench our thirst in the front bar of the hotel.

A bar where you can hear the different accents of the many foreign tourists who come to wonder at the splendour of Australia’s Outback mixed amongst the laughter and our unique Aussie Drawl.

TomO is very accustomed to the Birdsville Pub.

Oh, but don’t worry, he is yet to quench his thirst with a beer, perhaps that will come in time, but he has made many friends over the years in the front bar. Plotting adventures with a local boy, playing snooker with the many visiting pilots, and even fallen in love with the policeman’s daughter, at the tender age of three!

And he tells me he is looking forward to this visit…

What do you think he will find this time?
