Life & Style Weekend - - ESCAPE -

Two of Aus­tralia’s most fa­mous icons are cel­e­brated at grand gal­leries at Lon­greach. The Qan­tas Founders Mu­seum and Aus­tralian Stock­man’s Hall of Fame sit di­rectly across the road from each other and are well worth a visit. Wan­der through his­tory, and along the wings of two aero­planes, at the Qan­tas Founders Mu­seum with the Plat­inum Pack­age. You’ll get to stand in the same aero­plane once used by Michael Jackson dur­ing your three-hour guided tour of the Boe­ing 747 and its lit­tle brother, the 707. It’s the only place in the world where you can walk out on the wings of both air­craft. Then walk across to the Aus­tralian Stock­man’s Hall of Fame, a trib­ute to the peo­ple of out­back Aus­tralia. It has nu­mer­ous gal­leries cel­e­brat­ing dif­fer­ent as­pects of ru­ral life through­out our his­tory, from Abo­rig­i­nal work­ers in the pas­toral in­dus­try to rodeos and the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice. Put head­phones on and watch videos of stock­men telling their sto­ries or ad­mire the his­toric pieces of equip­ment that are on dis­play.
