The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame is a spectacular tribute to the people of outback Australia. It tells the story of the rural areas from the arrival of the Aborigines more than 40,000 years ago, settled by the British, exploration, the establishment of grazing, agriculture, mining, forestry and other industries in country Australia. It follows the story through to the present day where technologies of many kinds are playing the role in farming, business and communications. Themes also include development of the outback properties, living in the outback and the stock worker.
Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame was officially opened in 1988 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Over one million people have visited this premier tribute to the men and women of the outback. Be sure not to miss the "Wool Bale" cafe where you can enjoy a snack or relaxing cuppa.
The live 'Outback Stockman's Show' tells the story of real life stockmen and women who work on the land. The show features trick horses, a bull, dogs, sheep and so much more. A must do on everyone's itinerary.
The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame is truly an iconic Queensland Outback experience.
