Live the story of Australia’s pioneer heartland

Outback Pioneers, based in Longreach, is all about holidays, experiences and accommodation 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 quirky. And it’s something you’ll always remember.

You can enjoy an award-winning Thomson River cruise, Cobb & Co stagecoach ride, working station experience, an old time tent show, Winton day tour, Stonegrill® dining and much more.

We have won multiple awards for our cultural tourism over the past few years including two Gold Awards at the Outback Queensland Tourism Association Awards and the Visitors’ Choice Award for BEST EXPERIENCE in the Outback Queensland Tourism Awards 2019.

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).

Check out our Unleash Longreach holiday or create your own itinerary with our experiences and other local attractions.
