Come to Australia’s pioneer heartland and discover Longreach’s best experiences

Outback Pioneers, based in Longreach, is all about holidays and experiences that bring the pioneer past to life and take you to the heart of what it means to live large in this iconic outback region.

Here in outback Queensland you feel like a pioneer venturing light-years from the city. Suddenly the past does not seem so distant and the pioneering spirit shows its face around every corner.

The way of life here is uniquely Australian and is an iconic part of Australia’s story. It’s inspiring. It’s entertaining. It’s adventurous. It’s quirky. And it’s something you’ll always remember.

You can enjoy award-winning Thomson River cruises, Cobb & Co stagecoach rides, working station experiences, an old time tent show and much more.

Outback Pioneers won the Outback Queensland Tourism Association Gold Award for Cultural Tourism in 2018, and won the Queensland Tourism Gold Award for Cultural Tourism in 2016 and 2017, and a Bronze Award in 2018.

Get here quickly or get here slowly but get here soon.

You can fly to Longreach from Brisbane or Townsville, take a bus – or a train from Brisbane (via Rockhampton).

If you prefer to get a real sense of space and take your time with your own pioneering adventure, you can drive here on good roads (you don’t need a 4WD).
