Longreach Queensland-The Edge of the Outback

Longreach the Central Western Queensland capital lies cradled in a long reach of the meandering Thomson River in the vast prairie land. Every thing about the place is big. Big skies, big trucks, big properties, big steaks, big welcomes and big distances. ‘Just down the road’ can mean a journey of two or three hundred kms. “Don’t worry mate, just keep going … you’ll get there eventually”.

Outback people in their quiet and dignified way welcome visitors to their territory with genuine warmth. They seem pleased and sometimes curious as to why people would actually want to travel so far to experience a brief taste of their isolated and sometimes cruelly harsh way of life. But they are very pleased to offer an insight into their lives anyway.
