Outback Queensland Travellers Guide
If you are planning to travel around the Central Western region we recommend you take the time to download or pick up a copy of the Outback Queensland Travellers Guide from our Centre or your local visitor information centre.

The AWHC is located in Barcaldine on the Matilda Highway, about an hours drive from Longreach, on the main street of Barcaldine at 127 Oak Street. The Workers Heritage Centre is one of Outback Queensland’s best kept secrets, a significant tourist destination and part of the Queensland Government’s Heritage Trails Network.
Barcaldine is situated at the crossroads of two major highways – the Capricorn Highway from Rockhampton in the east and the Landsborough Highway (part of the Matilda Highway Tourist Route) coming up from the south before heading west to Longreach.
