The Birdsville Hotel, an icon of ‘the Bush” and a must-see for Outback travellers.

When this image was taken there weren’t too many tourists in Birdsville, floodwaters having cut off all the roads into town.

As a photograph it was a bit of a struggle too – overcast skies, no people and drab colours.

It was hardly the usual scene with a dozen or so dusty four-wheel-drives parked out the front and the bar was empty too.

I hope this tells the story though.
