You’ll be treated to a personalised tour of the property capped off with a delicious morning tea. Back in town, wander the Qantas Founders Museum and join a guided tour of the newly opened Airpark. Late afternoon board the Longreach Explorer for Smithy’s Sunset Cruise on the mighty Thomson River.  Unwind watching a magnificent outback sunset (Drinks & snacks available for purchase).

Day 4: Tuesday - Winton

Be prepared to be impressed with the changing landscapes as we travel from Longreach to Winton. We visit the Australian Age of Dinosaurs perched high on a magnificent mesa overlooking the plains where dinosaurs once roamed! Onsite dinosaur enthusiasts treat us to a top-class interpretive tour of the laboratory, collection room and Dinosaur Canyon. In Winton see the quirky Arno’s Wall, the Musical Fence and learn the story behind Australia’s unofficial national anthem at the Waltzing Matilda Centre. Return to Longreach late afternoon. Dinner tonight will be at your accommodation.

Day 5: Wednesday - Longreach

After a relaxed breakfast, join your guide for a short drive west from town to Lily Lagoon – a local favourite.  Part of the Thomson River system, the billabong emerges temporarily after rain. The lily-filled waterhole is perfect for bird-watching or a relaxing walk. Enjoy a traditional billy-tea then tour the nearby cattle sale yards. Spend time in downtown Longreach for a spot of Outback retail therapy. At the Stockman’s Hall of Fame, take your seat for the new Cinematic Experience.  Surrounded on three sides by a huge 16m screen, you are invited into the world of the Aussie Stockman. Late afternoon join your tour group for a short drive to Ilfracombe.  Founded in 1891, it was a transport hub for Wellshot Station, which at the time held the largest number of sheep on any station in the world.  We’ll cap off the tour with an authentic pub dinner at the historic Wellshot Hotel. Then it’s time for Longreach’s latest sensation the Luminescent Longreach Sound & Light Show.
