If you love history, then you’ll love Outback Pioneers’ award-winning experiences and holidays.

Whether you choose a day tour, or an inclusive package stay, you can expect a warm welcome, entertaining stories and iconic encounters that capture the essence of Queensland’s outback pioneer spirit and lifestyle.

And there’s so many experiences to choose from – here’s just a taste of what’s on offer:

Leisurely starlight sunset cruises on the historic ‘Pride of the Murray’ paddle wheeler along the Thomson River followed by dinner, entertainment and a sound and light show at the Stockman’s camp on the riverbank.

A nostalgic stagecoach journey into the bush at sunset. This 3-hour experience includes refreshments and a 2-course dinner in town with your stagecoach driver.

The Nogo Station Safari to tour the working station, visit its historic woolsheds and meet the resident Merino sheep and perhaps see some wild camels, emus and other animals roaming the extensive property.

You can also book an inclusive stay in pioneer-themed comfort at Outback Pioneers’ restored heritage buildings The Station Store and The Welcome Home in Longreach and enjoy the tour activities too!
