Enjoy an Outback Pioneers sunset cruise down the majestic Thomson River, where birds flock home to roost on the riverbanks. This is Longreach’s original Thomson River Cruise and still a must-do for every visitor to Longreach. You will cruise on either our paddleboast - the Pride of the Murray or the Thomson Belle. Both vessels offer a unique viewing experience.

Your 1-hour cruise, will offer endless photo opportunities and an insightful commentary as you pass natural features before we go ashore for a traditional stockman’s camp-fire dinner. This is the real outback experience with inspiring and humorous traditional entertainment featuring our barefoot bush poet and your Kinnon family host.

Next, the bush is illuminated by the Starlight’s Spectacular Sound & Light Picture Show – a unique big-screen presentation featuring the Kinnon family and locals in the amazing adventures of the notorious cattle thief known as ‘Captain Starlight’.

Finally, in the atmospheric surroundings of the bush at night, enjoy the timeless favourite – billy tea and damper.
