#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.

  • Best attraction in Australia. I cannot fault this place. Great keeper of our outback history.
  • Very disappointed with todays visit interactive displays missing an others not working empty displays all around the place. When i came here in early 90s it was loaded with displays an giftshop prints etc etc but nothing like it use to be! Couldnt even find decent gifts for the kids and inlaws! πŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜”πŸ˜§
  • Good place to visit. Parking lot could use some shade trees. Staff friendly and efficient. Interesting relevant artifacts including a beechcraft queen air.
  • Interesting, informative displays. Not the best place to eat in Longreach.
  • 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.
