Increasingly Longreach is on the mass market tourist agenda. The QANTAS Museum and the Australian Stockman Heritage Museum, plus the desire to be an armchair outback visitor being the key drivers.
Longreach is the birthplace of QANTAS Airways. The second longest operating and single ownership airline in the world. The QANTAS Museum is at an obvious must visit for visitors. The 707 plane should be a secondary consideration.
