LON­GREACH AND WIN­TON, QLD

Australian Traveller - - The 100 -

Per­haps over­looked for the bucket-list greats of the out­back, a visit to the dusty fron­tier town of Lon­greach pays rich div­i­dends. While you could spend weeks trav­el­ling around the Kim­ber­ley, there’s so much to do around Lon­greach in the space of a week­end. Learn about the ori­gins of our na­tional air­line at the Qan­tas Founders Mu­seum and don’t miss the ode to cow­boy life at the Aus­tralian Stock­man’s Hall of Fame. Just un­der two hours’ drive north, see the largest col­lec­tion of Aussie dino fos­sils in the world at the Aus­tralian Age of Di­nosaurs, be­fore ex­plor­ing clas­sic out­back town Win­ton and its new, im­proved Matilda Cen­tre (re­opened on 20 April), the world’s first mu­seum ded­i­cated to a song.
