Luxury, Longreach-Style

If you haven’t been to Queensland’s Outback, what on blazes are you waiting for?

Longreach is its beating heart, where there’s so much to see – including the Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Qantas Founders Museum, with its famous 747.

And now there’s a luxury place to stay right on the doorstep of it all.

Mitchell Grass Retreat is a shiny new experience for discerning visitors to the Outback.

Fifteen tents – some purpose-built for solo travellers and couples, others catering to families – sit at the edge of waving grass plains, a signature of the Longreach landscape.

Your accommodation is luxurious and thoughtfully appointed, with fine linen; European appliances; a private ensuite with deep tub and quality toiletries; plus breakfast delivered to your tent daily. You can also pre-order BBQ packs and antipasto platters. Keep reading for a special offer to Weekenders!

There’s a sparkling pool, perfect for a cool plunge.

And – Mums and Dads – your jolly little jumbucks can camp out in traditional style with adventure swags.

Queensland Helicopters operate scenic tours of Longreach and Winton – and can collect you from Mitchell Grass Retreat, on request.

Enjoy the ‘golden hour’ of sunset, then make your way in mere minutes to Qantas Founders Museum for a spectacular attraction that lights up the Outback night.

Longreach Luminescent Light & Sound Show transforms the museum’s aircraft –  including the mighty 747 – into massive movie screens, to share the story of Qantas over more than a century.
