Posted @withregram • @lifestyle_travellerz We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise down the majestic Thomson River when we were in Longreach recently . We missed this tour last time we passed through Longreach. It was a magical evening with the perfect sunset, great outback 'grub' followed by laughs and a tune or two on the guitar around the campfire. #longreach #outbackpioneers #thompsonriver #outbackqueensland #queensland #outback #starlightscruiseexperience #lifestyletravellers #lifestyle_travellerz

The 'refreshment bar' is always close by for Rainbow, Westpac and Whiskey. They're always encouraged to keep the fluids up after taking part in the Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show!

Book now (midday Monday to Friday) to see the trio in action.
