Longreach is also the home of the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame, which was officially opened in 1988 by Queen Elizabeth II. The aim of the centre is to showcase the history and the culture of life in rural Australia. Since its opening, over 1 million people have passed through its doors.
Longreach was one of the founding centres for Qantas, the Australian domestic and international airline. One of the airline’s original hangars remains in use at the Longreach Airport and is listed on the Australian National Heritage List.A full Boing Jumbo 747 is open to the public and for the adventurous they can stand on the wing for $70!! we didnt !! we need the money to spend in a pub ANY pub !! The town is now the home of the Qantas Founders Outback Museum.
The Stockmans Hall of Fame is an amazing building with lots of artifacts and photos of a time not so long ago and is a must to see (The Cowboy show was brilliant more pics on my next Blog)
