Awe Inspiring Outback Aussie Tours & Drovers Sunset Cruise on the Thomson River

G'day. If you have ever wanted to experience the Australian outback, we have created some memorable and inspiring journeys of Outback Queensland - packed full of interesting attractions and welcome surprises. Let us share our home with you. With easy connections from Brisbane via Rail or Air, joining one of our Outback adventures is easy.

Between April and October join our award-winning Drover's Sunset Cruise which includes the fabulous Smithy's Outback Dinner & Show.  We cruise on the majestic Thomson River aboard the MV Longreach Explorer then take our seat on the banks of the river (full table-service) to watching the entertaining live show.  From November to March (during the summer months) we offer our Summer Sunset Cruise featuring onboard nibbles.  

Our 2016 extended tour program has now been finalised and we are excited about the journeys we will share with you, should you choose to join us.  New dates and prices are now available for our Legendary Longreach and Winton tour, Outback Overlander, Birdsville Desert Escape, Corner Country Explorer, Journey of the Gulf Savannah, Cape York & Torres Strait and our Outback Getaway.  Come and explore the amazing Queensland Outback with us - we'd love to show you our home!
