Gidgee oven cooking

Gidgee wood enhances the natural flavour of our locally grown meat and vegetables. The 100 year old wood is hot burning and is a lot denser than ironbark meaning it lasts for a long, slow burn. We are proud to be able to cook over this wood and infuse our wood fired cuisine with the heart and soul of this land.

Hydrotherapy spa

The outdoor spa, located near the entertainment area is the only one of its kind in the area. The health benefits range from easing back pain, enhancing sleep, improving heart health, and decreasing anxiety and stress.

The outdoor beer garden

The newly renovated outdoor entertainment area has an outdoor bar, a stage and barbecue area. Perfect for an afternoon beer or wine, or to sit in and relax in front of a nightly show. From May to September you can also enjoy wood fired pizzas, roasts and Banjo’s famous camp-oven dinners, view our Facebook page for daily updates.

Live entertainment at The Gregory

Dedicated to honouring our outback’s rich music history, this one-of-kind music experience of the west showcases a mix of up-and-coming, and contemporary artists. Live music is available from April, and poetry reading, Banjos Waltzing Matilda, and more start in May. All live entertainment finishes in September. See our Facebook Page for updates!

Boulder Opals

Boulder Opals

Winton is one of the oldest and most famous mining towns in Australia. Boulder opals are very unique and are mined from large ironstone boulders under the ground. They can only be found in the areas of Quilpie and of course, Winton. They are the second most valuable type of opal and have a layer of solid brown ironstone on the back of the stone.
