Dan is a living, breathing, tour-leading, genuine icon of Outback Queensland.

Fifth generation farmer with country in his blood, true local Dan was raised and learned the ropes of farming on the family property, Camden Park Station outside of Longreach. A mere 18,000 acres. 

After 12 years of running his family property, unfortunately drought struck and stuck around, and Camden Park was destocked.

Outback Dan saw the potential in leveraging the history and photogenic views of the station, a place where the Queen and Prince Phillip visited in 1970 and the previous home of Sir James Walker, Dan’s respected grandfather who was knighted for his service to the Longreach community in 1972. 

Dan and his brother opened up the property to visitors wanting to live Australia’s story in Outback Queensland.

A cheeky bugger, he’s as suited to serving a cuppa with scones and mingling with Outback guests as he is to feeding and mustering a herd of cattle or sheep. 

Outback Dan is not just a grazier. He’s a pioneer, an innovator and an outback character.

We went on the tour to Camden Park with Outback Dan today and it was excellent. To see this lovely old homestead with its ballroom where the Queen and Prince Phillip visited is special. This experience is so authentic as Dan’s brother and his family actually live in the gracious old homestead where Dan grew up. His stories, told with great humour are very engaging. Smoko up at the artesian spa with delicious scones made by Dan’s mother, was terrific and to gaze around at the now green, Outback landscape very memorable. For a real taste of Outback Life not dressed up as a touristy thing to do try this!
