A remote outback adventure in Queensland’s backyard

Longreach is two days’ drive (4WD not necessary) or two hours’ flight from Brisbane. The 1175 kilometres distance puts you in a totally different world where sheep outnumber people, cattle roam the vast stations and the outback bush is an ever-present and ever-changing wonder.

The historic towns of Longreach and Winton are rich with pioneer heritage and are vibrant outposts of civilisation supporting the continuing tradition of grazing properties and welcoming the visitors that pass through on their outback adventures.

Winter (April-October) is the favourite time for wanderers to head west and that’s when Outback Pioneers invites guests for holidays and experiences. Our accommodation is open year-round for those who brave all seasons.

Kinnon Family

Real people, authentic experiences!

The Kinnon family have lived the outback life of graziers for decades and own two cattle and sheep stations near Longreach.

They founded Outback Pioneers (which started in 2006 as Kinnon & Co) to help support their outback life and the community through times of drought. What was born of necessity became a passion for sharing the local heritage and lifestyle with visitors. It’s a passion that shines through all the experiences and has won them many major tourism awards. Beyond the joy of sharing their world with you, the Kinnon family hope they can inspire you to help preserve the Australian outback they love.
