The Kinnon Family

Local graziers, storytellers and outback ambassadors

The Kinnon family have lived the outback life of graziers for decades with cattle stations near Longreach.

In 2006, they founded Kinnon & Co to diversify and support their outback life through drought. They soon became passionate about sharing the local heritage and lifestyle with visitors and the tourism business has grown to become one of outback Queensland’s biggest attractions.

The big motivation for the Kinnon family is to inspire and educate people to experience and preserve the real Australian outback.

Their greatest wish is that their family and other families like them will be able to continue to live the traditional outback life and care for the land.

When you come on an Outback Pioneers holiday or experience, you’re likely to meet some of the Kinnons who are still involved hands-on in entertaining and hosting visitors.

Richard Kinnon also spends time on the road as an ambassador for the outback, visiting schools and clubs to tell them about pioneering heritage and outback life.
