Barkley Highway Road Trip to Outback Queensland Ghost Town

This episode we travel 320km from Devils Marbles, Karlu Karlu Conservation Reserve, to Barkley Homestead in the Northern Territory. We’re travelling on a road we’ve never driven before, the Barkley Highway that runs between the NT and Queensland, which has recently reopened after flood waters conflicted a lot of damage to the road earlier in the year.

Our first overnight is at the recently reopened Barkley Homestead, in their large off grid camping area. The Barkley Homestead has suffered major flood and fire damage over the last 12 months, and has finally reopened their restaurant, campground and fuel station to campers and travellers by. We then hit the road heading east and cross the border into Outback Queensland.

We set up camp half way between Mt Isa and Cloncurry, in the ghost town of Mary Kathleen. Once a bustling town servicing one of the world’s most lucrative uranium mines, Mary Kathleen has a fascinating story and an incredible history worth exploring. Our epic road trip from South East Queensland to the incredible Red Centre – Uluru and Kata Tjuta – the beating heart of Central Australia, is underway!

We’ll be driving approximately 7500km over a 28 day period to complete this mini lap of Australia – a road trip we believe every Aussie should experience in their lifetime!
