Where is it? Longreach, 700km west of Rockhampton

It’s one thing to be taught about Australian history, but it’s another to experience it yourself. The Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame is surprisingly moving. Over one million visitors from all over the globe have passed through this Longreach institution since it opened in 1988, and it remains a popular way to learn about our outback heritage. Major collections include Smoky Dawson’s personal belongings, Sharman’s Boxing Troupe memorabilia, a selection of Hassett whips and items from the Australian Women Pilot’s Association. Quite honestly one of the most interesting museums in Australia.
