The Swagman's Grave

It is said a young man set out looking to make his own opportunities and was heading in the direction of the Camden Park Homestead to offer his services in exchange for food and lodging... but unfortunately, he never made it.

The Historic 'Dry Bottom' Chinaman's Well

This 30 metre deep well was built in the 1920's after the gold rush by a group of Chinese families that were living on Camden Park Station, growing fresh fruit and vegetables to sell at the local garden markets.

Our Incredible Artesian Spring & Bore

Built on Australia's Great Artesian Basin which underlies parts of Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory, Camden Park Station's spring and bore is used to water cattle and sheep, as a backdrop for a picturesque afternoon tea, and also as a swimming pool for the kids.

Longreach's Highest Lookout

360 degree views without any man-made infrastructure in sight, enjoy fantastic views and spectacular sunsets. Look out over Longreach and Ilfracombe and see the towns as they light up at night.

The 'Queen's Path' Where Elizabeth II Walked

On April 15, 1970, the Queen arrived at Camden Park Station in her Rolls Royce, and people came from as far as Roma, Rockhampton and Mt Isa to attend a luncheon hosted by the Matron of the local hospital. 

The Oldest Private Ballroom in the Outback

In 1927 an impressive Outback ballroom was built at Camden Park Station of Jarrah wood from Western Australia and featuring an exquisite chandelier. The ballroom has hosted many dignitaries over the years including the Queen.

If you visit Longreach you HAVE to visit Camden Park Station. A fifth generation, family sheep and cattle property run by the Walker family. Drought has led them to diversify into Tourism, by creating the opportunity for city folk to experience an amazing afternoon of history at the homestead, once visited by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip. The evening is then given over to nibblies and pre dinner drinks at the Artesian Bore further out on the property. This is followed with a magnificent BBQ hosted by Daniel and Brooke Walker, two nicer people you couldn’t meet! Later in the evening all the lights are turned off and you get to experience the inky dark with millions of twinkling stars as only an outback visit can provide. AWESOME experience!

When thinking of your next holiday, go to Longreach. Here is where you will experience what this country is truly about. Our visit to Camden Park Station was the highlight of our trip to Longreach, and in fact the most pleasurable and memorable day in my life for many years. Dan, Brooke and Harley are truly amazing people, opening their station to complete strangers and openly sharing their lives with us. Where can you experience a magnificent sunset without smog, have dinner under the stars, and be hosted by the friendliest, most genuine people in the world. No tourist attraction in this country comes close! Thank-you so much for what a wonderful experience on Monday night from Ken, Helen and Keith (the 86 year old with lots of stories to tell you)!
