Visit The Station Store – Longreach’s old-time shopping experience
Kinnon & Co’s outback emporium gives you a real taste of pioneer shopping.
The Station Store is based on the original outback emporiums that stocked everything and were a highlight for station folk coming into town for shopping. The historic building, which dates back to 1880s, is stocked full of outback clothing, gifts, homewares, local crafts and souvenirs.
Leave time for your Old Time Pioneer Portrait and pop next door for home-baked outback treats at The Welcome Home Café and Tearoom.
These adjoining buildings have all the atmosphere of a by-gone era and you’ll find good-old fashioned service too.
The Cobb and Co Stagecoach Experience leaves from behind The Station Store and our booking office is next door in The Welcome Home.
THE STATION STORE is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am – 5pm and Saturdays from 9am – noon during the tour season (April – October). From November to March our opening hours are Monday to Friday from 9am – 5pm and Saturdays from 9am – noon. We close for a holiday period over Christmas and New Year. Our online store is open year round.
PIONEER PORTRAIT SESSION
The Station Store is also home to our Old Time Pioneer Portrait studio and a wonderful wardrobe of pioneer costumes for you to transform yourself into a character from the outback past. Please contact us for an appointment (Tuesday and Thursday afternoons).
Wander through the store and out to the courtyard at the back and you’ll spy our collection of all sorts of outback memorabilia including an extensive collection of old domestic irons. Even in the early pioneer times, living in the outback meant dressing up to go to town, to church or visiting another station and an iron was essential to get the edge!
