Situated in western Queensland, Australia, Longreach is a great place to explore both the country’s heritage and the vast expanses of the outback.

The city itself may not be huge, but it offers plenty to do. Back in the 1920s, Longreach was the birthplace of Qantas – which has become a multi-national aviation phenomenon. See the original hangars and a fascinating museum documenting the rise of the brand.

Another unique attraction is the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame which pays tribute to the cowboys and herdsmen who were pioneers of the modern Australian nation. Learn about some inspiring stories of survival and heroism, before visiting the outback for yourself.

The area around the town has some beautiful stretches of countryside. With a rental car, visitors can easily get to Artesian Country, where expert guides will show you Aboriginal artworks and wagon tracks from over a hundred years ago.

The warm, pure waters bubbling up from beneath Artesian Country are also used by locals as a tonic, and there is a fabulous spa facility in Longreach, where visitors can feel totally relaxed and rejuvenated.

Another fantastic attraction is the chance to take a scenic railway journey through the outback. Enjoy a wholesome Aussie meal in the dining car of the Spirit of the Outback as the fields and extinct volcanoes drift past. There is no better way of experiencing this dramatic country.

Outdoor adventures abound near Longreach. Drive to the stunning Boodjamulla National Park and canoe through gorgeous canyons. Who knows, you may even come across one of the dinosaur fossils for which the area is world-famous?

There are even sporting events and festivals to enjoy. Head to Longreach Races and back your favourite horse or attend a rodeo competition where modern stockmen do battle for glory.

A rental car is absolutely vital, and try to secure a rugged four wheel drive model that you can rely on. If venturing into the outback, be sure to take more water than you think you’ll need and a good map. Guided tours are available, which could be more convenient, while dirt bikes and quads can be rented as well.
