The Betoota Hotel 160 klm’s from Birdsville has been shut for over 20 years when the owner Ziggy past away.
Robbo bought the pub a few years ago and he finally opened for business July 20th.
Betoota is claimed to be Australia’s smallest town with a population of one, the publican, and is located in the middle of the desert, in outback south western Queensland.
When I heard about the opening I just had to go, I decided on the XR instead of one of my other more suitable bikes for dirt roads cause there’s also heaps of sealed outback highways where the XR can stretch its legs, plus I find the XR very good on dirt roads.
Due to limited time off work it was going to be a quick trip.
I stealth camped in the bush on the way there and back.
