Welcome back to another week of Executive PA on tour! Currently, I’m resting up after a long week of shows in the regional country town of Charleville. This little gem is the heart of regional Queensland and is simplicity personified — a nice break from the cityscape I’m so used to living in.
But next up on the tour schedule we’ve got a show in Longreach and there were a couple of event offerings I wanted to highlight in this quaint country town.
The Welcome Home
The Welcome Home is a historic Longreach landmark that can cater for groups of up to 10 to 56 people for meetings or events. This outback-heritage themed space is recently restored and designed to bring the pioneering spirit to your next meeting or conference. The Welcome Home have wi-fi, projector, audio system with 2 microphones, display screen TV with HDMI connector and whiteboards and can also help with the rental of other equipment if it is available locally. If you’re ever in need of an event venue in Longreach, The Welcome Home is the perfect way to escape the day-to-day boardroom and embrace the country lifestyle.
Starlight’s Cruise Experience
If you’re taking a trip to Longreach for work, make sure to leave a little time to play. The Thomson River Cruise is one of Longreach’s famed attractions and is a must-do for anyone visiting. Either enjoy the cruise on the only paddle-wheeler west of the Great Divide or the historic Thomson Princess Riverboat and enjoy the scenic views. Revel in the magic as the bush is illuminated by the Starlight’s Spectacular Sound & Light Picture Show – a unique big-screen presentation featuring the Kinnon family and locals in the amazing adventures of the notorious cattle thief known as ‘Captain Starlight’. And to finish the spectacular cruise and truly embrace the outback experience, enjoy a classic meal of billy tea and damper.
Longreach might not be the first destination on your mind, but it sure has some magical experience and unique event offerings for your next meeting or conference!
