We drove from Winton to Longreach and what a difference a couple of hours make, this is a thriving community with tourism as one of it's leading attractions. We went and took photos of the "Stockmans Hall of Fame" and Qantas museum but we really went there to do the river cruise on the Thompson River. The cruise was magnificent. We went down the river and then they turned round and we headed back into the sunset so everyone could take photos, then we had a three course meal on the banks of the river (white table cloths and lanterns) and also two men singing bush songs and reciting bush poetry. We had a great time.
We also visited a friend of my daughters that used to work with her and is now living in Longreach.
