  • When the publican died in 1997, so did the town.
  • No fuel, no beer and nobody home.

Everyone stops at the Betoota Rest Area. They stop to read the history, to gaze upon the ruins and, with wistful imagination, picture what it must have been like for the late owner, living out here in such isolation.
The activity, the conversations and the colourful collection of visitors who stopped at this place are an echo in history. Recent history. The owner died in 1997 and that is when the town died also.

Drive around the left hand side of the pub towards the creek / waterhole – excellent spot for the night, with good flat areas to set up camp.

Please note there is NOTHING OPEN in Betoota.
