Day 1: Friday or Sunday – Longreach (D)

Feel that sense of freedom and adventure as you arrive into Longreach. You’re standing in the true heartland of Outback Queensland, home of legends, larrikins and our pioneering giants. Get acquainted on an introductory town tour with our Savannah Guides Operator guide before checking into your accommodation. Late afternoon board the Longreach Explorer for the award-winning Drover’s Sunset Cruise on the mighty Thomson River. Unwind with onboard nibbles and drinks, watching a magnificent outback sunset. Enjoy a two-course table-service dinner under the stars at the entertaining Smithy’s Outback Dinner & Show. Top off the evening with billy-tea and freshly baked damper. 3 or 4 nights Longreach Motor Inn (Optional upgrade to Mitchell Grass Retreat or Saltbush Retreat)

Day 2: Saturday or Monday – Longreach (B,L,D)

After a relaxed breakfast, join your guide for a short drive west from town to Lily Lagoon – a local favourite. Part of the Thomson River system, the lake emerges temporarily after rain. The lily-filled waterhole is perfect for bird-watching or a relaxing walk. Enjoy a traditional billy-tea then tour the nearby cattle saleyards. Back in town, wander the Qantas Founders Museum and join a guided tour of the newly opened Airpark. Late afternoon experience the warm hospitality of local graziers with a visit to the Camden Park Station. You’ll be treated to a personalised tour of the property capped off with sunset drinks. Dinner tonight will be at the award-winning Harry’s Restaurant.

Day 3: Sunday or Tuesday – Longreach (B,D)

Explore the five themed galleries of the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame. It began as the vision of well-known painter and former stockman, Hugh Sawrey. Just like his famed artwork A Vision Splendid, the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to the Aussie Stockman and heroes of the outback. Late afternoon join your tour group for a short drive to Ilfracombe. Founded in 1891, it was a transport hub for Wellshot Station, which at the time held the largest number of sheep on any station in the world. We’ll cap off the tour with an authentic pub welcome dinner at the historic Wellshot Hotel.

Day 4: Monday or Wednesday – Longreach (B)

Your Outback Queensland adventure comes to an end after breakfast with a complimentary transfer to your homeward bound connections.

Guests travelling on the 7 Day Rail Package will travel to Winton today on a full day tour including Australian Age of Dinosaurs and the Waltzing Matilda Centre. Please contact us for full itinerary which will include an additional night’s accommodation in Longreach.
