On our Cobb & Co Stagecoach Experience you’ll travel in a restored stagecoach on our award-winning tour – first at a leisurely pace through town and then full-tilt along a stretch of the original Longreach-Windorah mail route. Hear the pounding hooves of the magnificent horses on the outback dirt road. Hear the rattle and creak of the coach. Hold on to your hat for the only stagecoach gallop in Australia! It’s exhilarating. It’s entertaining. And it’s the closest you can get to feeling what it would have been like in the pioneer past. After the ride (depending on your itinerary) slow down with a traditional smoko (scones, jam, cream with tea). You'll also enjoy a classic Australian bush movie in retro cinema seats, followed by our Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show – a live performance featuring the very entertaining Kinnon boys. This is good old fashioned fun for all the family and is a tribute to the old travelling shows.
