#2 of 14 in Things to do in Longreach
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a pioneer or a stockman, looking after the livestock in remote Australia? Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre proudly displays objects and images from the bygone days, honoring the greatest and bravest explorers and Aborigines from the outback. Navigate through the galleries to understand why the founder and a former stockman himself, Hugh Sawrey, wanted to create a tribute to the unsung heroes and pioneering spirit. Admire the building from outside, and its stunning design from timber, stone and corrugated iron, reminiscent of the outback. Walk next door to visit a sandstone cottage complete with hand-edged timber, which is now an information center and a library.

  • Good place to visit. Parking lot could use some shade trees. Staff friendly and efficient. Interesting relevant artifacts including a beechcraft queen air.
  • Absolutely fantastic. Please allow plenty of time and read the biographies, listen to the stories. I specifically loved the section dedicated to stories related by Aboriginal people.
  • Fantastic museum tribute to the pioneers and owners of our land. Loved the stories - particularly of the Aboriginal stockmen and their families. We also took in the show and dinner which was wonderful. My 88 year old father has not stopped talking about it.
  • Well appointed museum easy to get around and view the entire display. The dinner and show was well worth it very entertaining and a delicious meal. Followed by more entertaining easy listening live performance.
  • Very informative, and also had the kids engaged for the most part. Friendly staff and presenters. I enjoyed the displays, and learned more about early pastoralism. I enjoyed the show (again, great for the kids to see). I did think it relatively expensive, however.
