Longreach Things to Do
On any visit to Longreach this is definately a place not to be missed...This is a wonderful tribute to the man on the land and above all, the great Aussie stockman (cowboy to some) .This is the man who knows and understands horses , and also is a great horseman in the saddle...working at temperatures around a hundred degrees ( 40 degrees C) this is not a job for whimps..Rounding up or driving stock is an amazing thing to watch although today as Australian properties are so huge in area a lot of the cattle "roundup"is done by helicopters and motorbikes.
This museum is certainly a tribute to the "stockman "and on display here are many different and interesting items to do with stockmen ie: old wooden horse driven wagons and drays..different types equipment used in everyday life on a cattle station..
There also is a great cafeteria here that does a great breakfast ....dont miss it...its really good..Related to:
