Big Red Sand Dune, Birdsville – 4 to 6 July 2016

We will keep the Big Red Bash ‘a’ bashing before and after the main event!

The Big Red Bash Comes to Birdsville

Spin a Yarn

Head to the front bar to meet old friends and new and check out the memorabilia, open from 10am til late.

Looking for takeaways? Call in at reception from 9am.

From the kitchen

Our chef’s been busy creating a special Big Red Bash menu. There’s continental fare and a pancake buffet to start the day.

Peckish travellers can select from our all day grazing menu – hand-held favourites with a twist.

The dinner menu follows the tradition of rustic communal dining with home-style dishes. Well organised early birds will get a seat at the communal table with dinner tickets on sale at the Hotel throughout the day (numbers are capped).

Our numbers are limited…

During the Bash our population swells from 100 to over 5,000. We’ve got extra cool rooms and staff and we’re expecting to smash our records for meal numbers during the 2016 Big Red Bash… but our kitchen is only just so big. Numbers for all meal sittings are capped – get in early!


Victoria Edwards Rocks the Innamincka Hotel

Plan your journey to join the party and ease into the Big Red Bash groove with the rockin’ beats and smooth sounds of Victoria Edwards with special guest Isaac Collins Kennedy.


Wind down on the Cooper Creek

Post-bash, head to Innamincka to wind down and chill out.

Your timing couldn’t be better! With the recent flows, now’s the time to explore the Cooper Creek from the water. Your choice of relaxing with our guide on the Cooper Creek Cruise (the sunset cruise is awesome!) or for those with energy to spare, there’s single and double canoe hire.

Relax at the Cinema under the Stars on Friday 8 July in our beer garden.

…or chill out with a beer and a round of mini golf.
