In the south-west corner of Queensland is one Australia's most remote outposts. Birdsville. As with most Australians, the mention of Birdsville made Dermott think of the two day horse races held there each September, but he knew there must be more on the other 363 days.
Birdsville sits on the edge of the Simpson Desert and is as far west as you can go without a 4WD. Its permanent population is 60 and it has two service stations, a pub, museum and busy bakery.
