Julia Creek

"The Bucket-List Town"

Julia Creek lies in the heart of the outback Downs country, and is home to the endangered Julia Creek Dunnart, a tiny marsupial that can be encountered at the award-winning ‘At The Creek’ Centre. During winter, visitors tuck-in to enjoy Monday night Bush Dinners and campfire yarns along with idyllic creek-side camping space. The town’s most infamous event is the Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival held in April each year, touted as one of the world’s toughest triathlons! Teamed together with the great Artesian Express Horse Race, this three-day action-packed event draws competitors and spectators from around the world!
