Longreach is home to quite a few tourist attractions. The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame is one of them, this is next to the outback Heritage Centre. Then you have the famous Qantas Founders Museum.
Find this place of many wonders between Winton and Barcaldine in the central west.
I had been here before with my best mate Sarah whilst on a camping road trip, many moons ago. Larry had not, so we decided to stop for the night.
Longreach Tourist Park
This is a huge and I mean huge park. Closely located to the Qantas Museum, which is a 2 minute drive or about 20 minute walk away.
Checking in you will see they have a tour desk and gifts. They are great at giving you all the information you need while in town. The “Woolshed” restaurant is on site although it's seasonal and not open when we visited.
With the park being so large you have a choice of 3 amenity blocks and 4 laundry's. There is a large camp kitchen by one of the two pools and electric BBQ site's around the park.
They cater for swags as well as large Rv's and busses. You can chose from a basic site to an on-suite site.
Huge birds strolled around the park. I had never seen anything like them. I have been told they are "Brolgas" by our readers 😀
Three of them walked around our van, I was gob smacked. To me, they were like something out of a David Attenborough documentary. They got very close looking for food.
1. Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame
You could walk here from the park in about 20 minutes. We headed here for coffee and cake and a look around. While heading in we had another David Attenborough moment. A man on a BFG (Big Friendly Beast) was at the doors. Yes apparently you can ride a cow!
Open times are 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week. Excluding Christmas day & Boxing day. Anzac day it opens at 12pm.
A 2.5 km interpretive native flora walk between the town centre and the Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Iningai Nature Park, located on the Longreach Town common. includes sections of floodplains and waterholes.
More activities are in town and around the area, these are just a few.
A nice park and a town full of interesting history. You could spend big $ here but have a look around first to check out your options.
