HEAR YE! HEAR YE! HEAR YE! There’s a new town crier in the heritage heart of Longreach and he’s here to update you on the news! Put away the mobile phones and hear all you need to know just the way pioneers did when few people could read and news travelled slowly. He’s outside The Welcome Home (Outback Pioneers Booking Office) at 128 Eagle Street at 8.15am, every Monday to Friday. Our crier is Patrick, a Longreach local with a sense of humour and a daily update worth listening to!

Well this pick-up was a little out of the ordinary! It was a great honor for Outback Pioneers to be the chosen mode of transport by The Premier. With Jeremy and Lane Kinnon at the helm, the coach pulled up outside Qantas Founders Museum to ferry The Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk MP across the highway to the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame during her visit to Longreach. The mode of transport may have been a little slower than The Premier was used to, but we hope far more enjoyable than the alternative. 🤠
