Cobb and Co Stagecoach Experience

Live the past with all your senses as you ride the old Longreach-Windorah mail route.

Cobb and Co were the pioneers of stagecoach travel and mail services throughout Australia. On our Cobb & Co Stagecoach Experience you’ll travel in a restored stagecoach on our award-winning tour – first at a leisurely pace through town and then full-tilt along a stretch of the original Longreach-Windorah mail route.

Hear the pounding hooves of the magnificent horses on the outback dirt road. Hear the rattle and creak of the coach. Hold on to your hat for the only stagecoach gallop in Australia! It’s exhilarating. It’s entertaining. And it’s the closest you can get to feeling what it would have been like in the pioneer past.

After the 45 minute stagecoach ride and photos, slow down with a traditional smoko (the original Aussie tea break), a classic Australian movie in retro cinema seats and our Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show, which has fun for all the family in a tribute to the old travelling shows.

The 4-hour experience starts from Kinnon & Co’s The Station Store in town. Monday to Friday from 8.30am. Booking essential. Please let us know when you book if you have any special dietary requirements.

Minimum numbers required.

Our 2021 tour season is from 30 March – 30 October.

FAQs

Is the ride suitable for those with bad backs?

The gallop is only a short section of the ride and on soft tracks. People are surprised how comfortable it is. The decision is yours but many of our passengers are older people with less robust bodies!

Meeting point

Please note we are unable to offer Longreach accommodation pick-up or drop-off for this tour. Instead, please make your own way to Kinnon & Co’s The Station Store at 126 Eagle Street and wait in the Cobb & Co Courtyard at the rear of the store.
