Longreach Long Weekend
Reconnect, re-energise and rediscover.
This 4-day break gives you the chance to get away from it all and do something really different. Relax in our unique, heritage-inspired 4- or 4½-star accommodation and experience some of the highlights of Longreach.
This is the ultimate long-weekend escape from the city. Turn off your technology, if you dare, and get reaquainted with a simpler way of life where your wake-up call is the corellas or cockatoos leaving their roost. We’ve included some extras to help you enjoy a leisurely break, including a packed picnic basket to enjoy under the gum trees and a bath terrace relaxation pack so you can soak under the stars or watching the sunset.
Plus you’ll get to do our two most popular experiences and the famous Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame and the Qantas Founders Museum.
ARRIVAL DAY: Thursday
What you’ll enjoy:
Thursday Check in after 2pm and discover the slower outback pace where you can leave your stresses and technology dependence behind! Time for a swim or to soak in the terrace bathtub – or walk into town. Have a BBQ and watch an open-air movie or enjoy the evening your own way. [D]
Friday We’ll pick you up for your Cobb & Co Stagecoach Experience – a 45-minute stagecoach ride you’ll never forget, smoko (a home-baked morning tea) and a classic bush movie. Then enjoy the hilarious the Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show with a billy-can lunch. Do some shopping before heading back for a sunset soak on the outdoor bath terrace. A 2-course, chef-prepared meal will be delivered to your room so relax and enjoy! [B,MT,L,D]
Saturday Visit the Qantas Founders Museum to discover the pioneers of flight and explore the historic aircraft during your 90-minute Jet Tour. Then have a picnic basket lunch – either take bikes or find a spot close by – we can recommend some great places. At 4pm leave for your Starlight’s Cruise Experience with stockman’s campfire dinner, and Starlight’s Spectacular Sound & Light Picture Show. [B,L,D]
Sunday Enjoy a late check-out and there’s time to visit the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame to see their five themed galleries before the Outback Stockman’s Show at 11am. [B]
