Innamincka is a small town at the end of the Strzelecki Track, 40km from the Queensland border. It boasts a refurbished hotel complete with an air-conditioned beer garden called ‘Outamincka’, laundry and shower amenities, a trading post, three airstrips, and the Australian Inland Mission building established in 1928 by Reverend John Flynn.
Dine ‘Outamincka’ style at the Innamincka Hotel and experience an authentic outback pub. Mobile and Wi-Fi facilities are available. The hotel also offers well-appointed hotel rooms and bunkhouse-style accommodation, and guided boat tours of the Cooper Creek.
The Innamincka Regional Reserve surrounds the town and is an oasis of waterholes lined with ancient coolabahs and river gums. Camping permits are available from the Innamincka Trading Post.
Visit King's Marker and the grave sites of outback explorers Burke and Wills, while the famous Dig Tree lies just over the Queensland border and can be reached by crossing Cooper Creek via the Burke and Wills Bridge.
Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park is a ‘must-visit’. See birdlife and beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the still waters of these superb lakes. Restrictions apply; visit the Innamincka Regional Reserve headquarters and Visitor Information Outlet located in the Australian Inland Mission building, before you head out.
