Tambo, Home of the Tambo Cup Horse Races

Tambo is a small outback town in Australia. Some 500 people live there. The town is naturally small, yet will all the necessary social conveniences and infrastructure. Tambo is known as the ideal stop-over between Charleville and Longreach.  Located around 1000km North West of Brisbane on the Landsborough Highway, Tambo is also regarded as one of Queensland’s oldest towns in the bush.  Originally established in the 1860’s as a service centre to local farming communities, today Tambo has expanded the economy by diversifying with wool and beef products.

Tambo has many natural attractions nearby including the Salvator Rosa National Park which is an attraction for nature tourism, and offers hikes and rambles along the Barcoo River where visitors can take the featured Coolibah Walk and enjoy the river and its peaceful meanderings. Tambo has a range of accommodation houses including motor inns, caravan parks and camping facilities.  The attractions include historical houses, the Influenza Memorial and a visit to the old post office, which is like taking a step back in time.
