If you’ve always dreamed of visiting Australia’s heartland in Outback Queensland, it’s time to grab your kit and head for the bush! Longreach is the ideal outback base for soaking up the history and heritage of this amazing region. Book a room in an old country pub and meet some local characters. Whether your accommodation tastes lean towards camping under the stars or air-conditioned comfort, Longreach offers visitors plenty of options.
Banjo Paterson wrote the lyrics for the famous Waltzing Matilda ballad in 1895, while staying at Dagworth Station outside Winton. He first played the unofficial national anthem at Winton’s North Gregory Hotel. The hotel is a favourite stop for Winton visitors. Recognised as the ‘home’ of Australian bush poetry, Winton hosts the annual Bronze Swagman Award. This is one of the country’s most prestigious literary awards. The iconic Australian airline, Qantas started here in November 1920. They held the first board meeting in the Winton Club way back in 1921! However if you want to visit the Qantas Founders Museum, you’ll have to head to Longreach. Winton has an undisputed rich history with links to the Great Shearers’ Strike, Waltzing Matilda and Qantas. However in recent days dinosaur discoveries have attracted new visitors to the region. Winton has three artesian bores, drawing water from the Great Artesian Basin. The 83 degree Celsius water travels around 1,200 meters through the ground to the surface.
