About
On our Cobb & Co Stagecoach Experience you’ll travel in a restored stagecoach on our award-winning tour – first at a leisurely pace through town and then full-tilt along a stretch of the original Longreach-Windorah mail route. Hear the pounding hooves of the magnificent horses on the outback dirt road. Hear the rattle and creak of the coach. Hold on to your hat for the only stagecoach gallop in Australia! It’s exhilarating. It’s entertaining. And it’s the closest you can get to feeling what it would have been like in the pioneer past. After the ride (depending on your itinerary) slow down with a traditional smoko (scones, jam, cream with tea). You'll also enjoy a classic Australian bush movie in retro cinema seats, followed by our Harry Redford Old Time Tent Show – a live performance featuring the very entertaining Kinnon boys. This is good old fashioned fun for all the family and is a tribute to the old travelling shows.

This is a terrific thing to do when in Longreach, very thrilling experience. We also did the Starlight Cruise & Nogo Station. All three are a truly great experience whether it’s your first time or a return travellers like us. We go to Longreach at least once a year, a terrific place to relax. Would highly recommend a trip, everyone so friendly.

Stagecoach excellent, rest of the tour not.
Stagecoach experience was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Then 1.5hrs of our time was wasted watching a 1950’s movie. That time could of been more productive looking around the local streets/shops. Some people just didn’t even attend the tent show, as they were put off from watching the movie.
We had the billy tea lunch while watching the tent show.

Overpriced for what you get
Sep 2021
Unless you are one of the lucky few who get to sit on top , you will see very little on this ride. And the show, well what can I say ? Silly toilet humour.

We're always disappointed on the rare occasions our guests are disappointed so we're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the Cobb & Co Stagecoach Experience. Really this ride is less about great scenery to see and more about experiencing what the pioneers experienced - the rattle and groan of the stagecoach, the pounding hooves, the dust of the bush track, the excitement of outrunning a storm. The tent show is also about stepping back in time to the traditional shows, which featured simple humour and silly antics. Sophisticated it certainly isn't. But for the young and young-at-heart who get into the spirit of it, it's good old fashioned fun! We do appreciate your feedback and it's useful for us to investigate where guests' expectations are different from what they experience.

What a great experience. Outback Pioneers certainly know how to put together a comprehensive morning. The Cobb and Co Tour was fun, the morning tea delicious, the movie and popcorn entertaining and the show very funny. Well done team.

Best adventure in the QLD Outback
Sep 2021
We had such a good time with Outback Pioneers. We booked the Thomson River cruise, Nogo Station visit and the Cobb & Co experience, each on different days. For the price we paid and what we experienced, I felt was very good value for money.

The booking process was seamless and we were collected from our accommodation for the Cruise and Nogo experience. We took our kids aged 3, 6 & 8 and they loved it as well (although the 3yo was entertained by the other two). It was like a gift that kept on giving with the food and entertainment they provided. And the Kinnon brothers - hilarious. I'm sure some of the Oldies wet themselves with laughter! One of the best experiences we have had.

I highly recommend Outback Pioneers.

Ok but could be much better.
Sep 2021
This was a long day which we were not expecting with the added "show" at the beginning and movie at the end. We did not know that this was included. When we got the offices we were told it was going to last several hours and if we wanted lunch we could purchase theirs for $15 each. A corned beef sandwich an apple a biscuit and a drink. That added another The show at the beginning went on too long. It was a hot day and children were very restless. The stagecoach ride itself was great however in coach most people were in the coach there was an opportunity for 1 person at the front and 3 or people on the back. There were 5 children in our group across 2 families. An adult sat the up front spot so the back could only fit 4 children. Which meant one child missed out. It would have been nice to have changed over half way through so that child got the opportunity to sit up the top as well. Very unfair. Due to some issues with one of children I was late getting to the afternoon tea and one the lady serving says we have an extra who wants it? Someone snapped that up but it was mine. This was the second tour I missed out on the included "meal". The actual stagecoach ride could have been improved by a hold up or something in the bush. It being the main attraction was the shortest part of the tour.

Thank you for your review and feedback. We're sorry to hear some aspects of the experience weren't what you expected. I don' know the ages of your children, but most kids really enjoy the show as it has simple slapstick-style humour suitable for all ages. The stagecoach ride is designed to be a genuine experience of how a pioneer trip would have been and the seating is as it was in an original coach. We believe your group did have a good share of the outside seating and unfortunately logistics and safety don't allow a change over out in the bush part way through the ride. We're really sorry to hear you missed out on your afternoon tea. We never like to see good food go to waste but we'll remind the crew to do a head count and meal count to allow for latecomers in future. We hope the children look back on their outback experience and stagecoach ride with positive memories.
