Unforgettable things to do in Longreach

Discover your inner pioneer

Make the most of being light years from the city with experiences and tours that immerse you in outback life. One day you’ll be a pioneer traveller on a stagecoach rattling through the bush on the old mail route and the next you’ll be learning about feral animals on the station safari. You’ll almost certainly want to cruise down the Thomson River for a stockman’s campfire dinner. And that’s just the start.

You’ll see the outback in all its glory. You’ll feel it. You’ll smell it. You’ll taste it. You’ll meet its people and hear their stories. You’ll share in the dust and drama, the traditions and laughter.

You can’t help but go home a little changed. And with your own amazing memories to share.
