Outback Pioneers invites everyone to come to Longreach and discover the heritage and pioneering spirit of outback Queensland.

Step into pioneers shoes for holidays and experiences that entertain, educate and inspire.

Owned and managed by the Kinnon family, Outback Pioneers reflects their love of the outback lifestyle and dedication to preserving it for future generations. What began in 2006 as a way to diversify the family’s grazing business in times of drought has become a passion to share Australia’s iconic heritage with visitors.

When you visit Longreach you can also stay year-round in Kinnon & Co’s award-winning, heritage-inspired Outback Accommodation, which is an attraction in its own right.

Between the months of April-October come and unleash your pioneering spirit with Outback Pioneers. The only place in Australia you can gallop in a Cobb & Co stagecoach along part of an old mail route, see the Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show and much more. You can also take a sunset cruise on the Thomson River to a stockman’s dinner around the campfire plus visit the Kinnon’s historic, working Nogo Station where Captain Starlight kept his stolen cattle and where station life continues to defy drought and distance.

In Longreach, the Kinnon & Co Station Store and The Welcome Home are further attractions and the Outback Pioneers booking office is in The Welcome Home building at 128 Eagle Street. See more online at www.outbackpioneers.com.au or phone +61 7 4658 1776.
