Kick off your boots and step back in time at our deluxe Pioneer Slab Huts accommodation!
Our self-catering Pioneer Slab Huts in Longreach combine pioneer simplicity with 4-star comfort. You’ll love the canopied bed and the quirky bath-tub terrace out the back where you can relax in a bath under the stars or cool off with a drink on a hot day!
Life is a little easier than it would have been for pioneers with our ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning, fridge and cooking facilities but you can turn off the TV and imagine this is your outback home from 100 years ago…
These slab huts have been constructed using traditional pioneer techniques and feature many local crafts and quirky features that help tell the outback story. Brew some tea, pull up a chair on the rustic front verandah and enjoy this truly unique accommodation experience.
24-hour reception and other on-site facilities are shared with the rest of the Outback Accommodation complex.
