NOCCUNDRA

Noccundra is most likely what Birdsville was over 50 years ago. A quiet unpretentious place a long way from everything.

The township in south western Queensland, Australia. It is on the banks of the Wilson River 145 kilometres from, and 250 kilometres east of Innamincka.

The hotel is Noccundra's only occupied building, housing a permanent population of four The stone hotel building is heritage listed. An airstrip is behind the hotel.

Andrew Hume's ill fated expedition, to rescue long term survivors of Leichhardt 1848 expedition, perished of thirst to the west of Noccundra. Today a memorial to Hume is on the western side of the hotel

The Noccundra Hotel is the centre of town; and it is a town. A place with streets.

There is also an airstrip and a school that services the wider community. But there is nothing else. Noccundra though has a bit of that ‘lets' visit anyway’

The Noccundra War Memorial is opposite the hotel.

The Noccundra Museum is located at the bar of the hotel.

The Noccundra Hotel has accommodation and power sites. For campers and carvers by the river is recommended, unless you can sleep through compressor noise.

The Hotel puts on basic meals and bar prices is reasonable.

No TV, no internet and no mobile signals of any sort.

A must visit. This is the outback
