  • 'I have just done my first holiday with Encounter Travel - Outback Longreach Explorer. What an awesome holiday. We saw so many and varied things and had a true Australian Outback Experience with the people, their stories and the landscape. The places we visited were varied and all had something interesting. The holiday was jam packed with things to do but we also had a nice amount of downtime to explore on our own or rest if we wished. This tour was absolutely fabulous and for a city girl was really interesting to see what the Outback of Australia is really like. I highly recommend this tour.'

  • 'Do yourself a favour & go visit the true spirit of Oz. You will be amazed at the scenery, filled by the food, humbled by the people who work on the land and come home having made some new friends.'

  • 'I can't recommend the Encounter trip to Longreach enough. So many interesting things to see and do in the area. Beautiful landscapes,sunrises and sunsets, so much sky up there.
    I enjoyed the Australian Age of dinosaurs, visiting Camden and Rosebank station, Stockmans Hall of Fame, in fact, there was not anything I did not enjoy on this trip. It is a really interesting part of Australia.
    The Spirit of the Outback is a wonderful and unique train trip, seeing all the changing scenery, wildlife and passing through all the different towns, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.'

  • 'I would thoroughly recommend visiting Longreach with Encounter Travel. The tour is well organised and covers a good variety of interests and activities which give you a real taste of outback Qld, it’s history and the people who live and work there. It’s also great to travel and share the experience with other solo travellers.'
