Now deserted, it was once a busy meeting point for the drovers moving their cattle through South Australia, and served as a Cobb & Co.'s staging point.

Betoota is now a ghost town situated in the middle of nowhere on the way between Eromanga and Birdsville. Get out and explore the ruined hotel and old yellow bus.
