Authentic step back in time
To properly experience the history of a place, you need to be immersed in the atmosphere and local charms. This is exactly the experience you will get with Kinnon & Co, Longreach's number one tour operators.

Offering a range of authentic outback experiences from Cobb N Co rides, to camp fire sing-a-longs, the Thomson River Cruise is the stand out experience and gives you a genuine taste of the legacy of the Longreach area.

With the convenience of a bus that will pick you up from your hotel, you can sit back and enjoy the drive out to the "Long Reach" of Longreach river while learning about different landmarks throughout the town from the friendly bus driver.



From there, you can watch the sun set while cruising on the historic Thomson Belle Paddlewheeler or Thomson Princess Riverboat while indulging in a buffet of nibbles and snacks. Afterwards, on the banks, enjoy a drover's dinner and entertainment around a campfire.

Bush poetry recital


The entertainment is varied and suitable for any ages, including the re-enactment of a day in the life of a real bushranger and jokes and poems shared by some Longreach locals.

See below for prices and booking details, and make sure you get out and see the real heart of Queensland.
