About Outback Pioneers
Outback Pioneers award-winning outback experiences and holidays, in Longreach, invite you to unleash your own pioneering spirit.
You’ll be thrilled when taking your seat on Australia’s only Cobb and Co stagecoach gallop along part of an old mail route. Or absorb the changing colours on the original Thomson River cruise as you sail from sunset to starlight in a paddlewheeler or on the historic riverboat. The Starlight’s Cruise Experience also includes a stockman’s dinner by the campfire and bush entertainment. There’s nothing quite like the Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show with its mix of mayhem, animal antics and crazy humour. And you must visit historic Nogo Station – a working sheep and cattle station where you can see a shearing demonstration and go on station safari by double-decker, open-top overlander bus to spot animals that call the outback home. The station visit also includes a generous home-baked ‘smoko’ (morning tea). There’s also a Winton day-tour, which visits the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum, Dinosaur Canyon, and the new Waltzing Matilda Centre.
Whichever of the experiences you choose, you will be sharing a real outback experience with genuine outback people who live and breathe the region’s past, present and future.
