There are no luxurious mansions in the tiny Western Queensland town of Adavale, population 20, that lies to the north of Quilpie. It's a remote and quiet corner of the Australian Outback, and while some structures are in a state of decay, and the houses are far from lavish buildings, locals give travelers a traditionally warm and hospitable Outback welcome.
