‘Come join the Evolution!’ on this full day 300km plus round trip through Desert Channel Country and explore the evolution of the Queensland Outback

In the comfort of our air conditioned bus, we will make our first quick stop in the heart of the Desert Channel Country at Politic Creek. Here you will begin to see the evidence of the ancient Eromanga Sea, brought to life by your Dreamtime guide.

Next, we continue to travel through Yiningai country and head to Muttaburra, home of the Muttaburrasaurus Interpretive Centre. In 1963 the first of five and the second most completed skeleton of the Muttaburrasaurus Langdoni was found by a local grazier near the Thomson River. Your Dreamtime guide will take you through the centre sharing their knowledge of paleontology as you visit the home of the replica of this magnificent now extinct animal. Muttaburra derives its name from a Yiningai word meaning 'meeting of waters' or 'meeting place' In the spirit of the original inhabitants, we will have a morning tea break here provided for you by your Dreamtime Guide.

After morning tea, we visit the amazingly well preserved historical outback hospital at the Dr Arratta Memorial museum. The museum houses an array of medical artifacts and historical memorabilia. Take a step back in time and see how medicine has evolved throughout the years. before heading to Ilfracombe for lunch and a cold drink at the iconic Wellshot Hotel.
