Long weekend in Longreach
Looking for a taste of the Outback and don't have the time? Longreach is accessible daily from Brisbane by Qantaslink as a long weekend destination for an action packed Aussie Outback experience.
Pack your 'swag' and head out to the not so 'wild west' in Central West Queensland in the Heart of the Outback. Longreach is home to two iconic Aussie icons – QANTAS and the fabled Australian stockman. Experience both in the high quality interpretation display at the Qantas Founders Museum and the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame.
The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame is a tribute to the Australian stockman and women from the Indigenous origins, explorers and stories of droving, life in the bush and the development of the unique Royal Flying Doctors Service. The Hugh Sawrey Art Gallery and Information Centre houses some unique and breathtaking snapshots of the Drovers life.
