Longreach offers two terrific museum experiences - the Stockmans Hall of Fame and the Qantas Founders Museum (Qantas was conceived in Cloncurry, born in Winton and based in Longreach). We soon realise that our plans to tackle both are too ambitious so we ditch the Hall of Fame for the plane... but not before enjoying a Bushmans' Show.

Great statue outside the Stockmans Museum. We're told the exhibition inside is just as great, but with three raucous kids whose attention spans seem to be shrinking the more long car trips we do back to back, we cut our losses this time and give it a miss.
