Do-It-All Discovery Holiday

It’s everything you could want and more.

Our 6-day holiday does it all and is timed to fit with train or plane arrivals.

There’s no better way to experience the spirit of the region and its resilient pioneers – past and present – than this comprehensive itinerary. You’ll stay in our best available accommodation at the time of booking, so book early for chance to be in our Homestead Stables or Pioneer Slab Huts.

Wednesday: Arrive Longreach

This evening arrive in Longreach and transfer to your accommodation. Stay the next five nights at Kinnon & Co Outback Accommodation, Longreach.

Thursday: Nogo Station Experience, Qantas Founders Museum

You’ll be picked up from your accommodation for a town tour of Longreach then on to the Kinnon’s historic Nogo Station. Hear all about the pioneering lifestyle, see a champion sheep shearer at work and then be welcomed to the homestead for a wonderful ‘smoko’ – an impressive spread of country baking.

Transfer to the Qantas Founders Museum where your entry is included. Take your time to enjoy the museum and your 90-minute Jet Tour. Stroll back to your accommodation across the road before heading to The Welcome Home for your Settlers Stonegrill Dinner. (B,MT,D)

Friday: Cobb & Co Stagecoach Experience, Starlight’s Cruise Experience

Today’s the day for your Cobb & Co Stagecoach Experience including the stagecoach ride on the old Longreach to Windorah mail route, home-baked scones and tea at our cafe and tearoom followed by a vintage Aussie movie. At 12pm watch the Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show with a billy-can lunch before transferring back to your accommodation.

At around 4.30pm you’ll be picked up and taken to the banks of the Thomson River for our Starlight’s Cruise Experience. The cruise is followed by a hearty stockman’s dinner around the campfire with bush poetry then the Starlight’s Spectacular Sound-and-Light Picture Show featuring a special movie commissioned by the Kinnons to celebrate our legendary local hero Harry Redford. BYO drinks. (B,MT,L,D)

Saturday: Winton Discovery Experience

It’s a 6.45am start for a full day tour to Winton. Visit the Australian Age of Dinosaurs museum and Dinosaur Canyon plus the exciting new Waltzing Matilda Centre*.  Enjoy lunch at the historic North Gregory Hotel with time for a stroll of the Main Street before heading back to Longreach. (B,L) *Opens late April 2018. Other attractions will be substituted before this date.

Sunday: Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame

The Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame is only a short walk from your accommodation and you’ll start the morning with Scotty’s Stories of the Past – a 1-hour tour of the Sculpture Walk. Then there’s plenty of time to explore the five galleries before the Outback Stockman’s Show at 11am. Enjoy lunch at the museum café (at your own cost). Wander back to your accommodation and decide on dinner. Try out one of the restaurants in town or order takeaway... (B)
