Day 1: Arrive Longreach

Feel that sense of freedom and adventure as you arrive into Longreach. Fly/Rail guests will be met at Longreach Airport on arrival. 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. Dinner tonight will be at the Bird Cage Hotel, a local favourite! 4 nights Longreach Motor Inn (Optional upgrade to Mitchell Grass Retreat or Saltbush Retreat) (D)

Day 2: Longreach

This morning, experience the warm hospitality of local graziers with a visit to nearby Camden Park Station. You’ll be treated to a personalised tour of the property capped off with a delicious morning tea. Back in town, wander the Qantas Founders Museum and join a guided tour of the newly opened Airpark. 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. (B,D)

Day 3: Longreach

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 sale yards. Explore the five themed galleries of the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame, then take your seat for the Cinematic Experience to discover the world of the Aussie Stockman. Own arrangements for lunch in downtown Longreach with time for some outback styled retail therapy! 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 dinner at the historic Wellshot Hotel. Then it’s time for Longreach’s latest sensation the Luminescent Longreach Sound & Light Show. (B,D)

Day 4: Winton

Be prepared to be impressed with the changing landscapes as we travel from Longreach to Winton. We visit the Australian Age of Dinosaurs perched high on a magnificent mesa overlooking the plains where dinosaurs once roamed! Onsite dinosaur enthusiasts treat us to a top-class interpretive tour of the laboratory, collection room and Dinosaur Canyon. In Winton see the quirky Arno’s Wall, the Musical Fence and learn the story behind Australia’s unofficial national anthem at the Waltzing Matilda Centre. Return to Longreach late afternoon. Dinner tonight will be at your accommodation. (B,L,D)
