Longreach and Central West

Adventure through rolling red grasslands aboard a multi-day coach, on a 4WD tour, train or plane to the birthplace of Qantas and Waltzing Matilda in Outback Queensland’s Central West.

Seek adventure

Climb Starlight’s Lookout, take a ride in a galloping horse-drawn stagecoach and learn about Australia’s heritage in Longreach. Witness footprints of a dinosaur stampede at the Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways and see the world's largest collection of Australian dinosaur fossils at The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum near Winton. Swim, kayak, water-ski or cruise the Thomson River or fish for yellow belly and red claw crayfish under the red river gums. Hike to the Biloela lookout for views over Callide Dam in the Sandstone Wilderness, dotted with water-skiers and campers.

Meet the locals

Watch teddy bears come to life in Tambo and admire the old machinery lining the main street of Ilfracombe. Visit the birthplace of the Australian Labour Party in Barcaldine and head to Blackall for an artesian bubble-spa. Learn to crack a whip, lasso or ride a horse in the red dirt at a working farm stay in Baralaba, or slow the pace while exploring historical villages and peer into the old Wowan butter factory.
