Longreach

Situated smack bang in the middle of Queensland, about 1,200km north west of Brisbane, Longreach is known for its cattle and sheep farming. This lovely outback town has plenty of history, including the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre and the Qantas Founders Museum. Qantas (Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Service) was born at nearby town Winton (where A.B. Banjo Paterson wrote Waltzing Matilda in 1895) on the 10th of February 1921 and later moved to Longreach. In 1922, the country’s first purpose built runway and hangar were built. The original hangar is used today as a museum. Take a ride in an original Cobb & Co coach through the bush or relax on a river cruise down the Thomson River, there’s something for everyone in this outback town.
