        Sunset Cruise
        Bus pick up on time. Driver gr8. This is a BYO drinks tour. Sunset cruise on paddleboat includes cheese, bikkies, nibbles & gr8 commentary with fantastic river reflections & sunset photo opportunities. Dinner stew & mash delicious, a film, followed by wonderful bush poetry/stories, damper, tea. We enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended.

        Well presented river cruise & campfire dinner with entertainment
        The river is beautiful & the paddle boat very interesting. the pickup bus is large & modern, the driver very informative with lots of humour. The campfire dinner very tasty & plentiful. The commentary & poetry great. Overall a must do experience in a stock mans camp which was exactly as expected & well done.

        Commentary was excellent on the cruise, the views are great so be sure to take your camera. We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment especially the poetry. From pick up to drop off this is a great experience, would recommend.

        Great night on the Thomson
        We found the cruise humorously enlightening, the food was very tasty, the yarns and poetry most entertaining, and the movie a good laugh with a bit of history. All up a great night

        Not to be missed!
        This was a wonderful experience, starting with a sunset cruise with interesting commentary, but also time for quiet reflection. An added bonus was the send off by a group of turtles! The campfire dinner was delicious, and they happily catered for dietary requirements. The poet was great to listen to, and the movie quite entertaining. One of our group had quite limited mobility, and Lane and his team were just amazing in making provision for that and helping us out. Lane was hilarious, and the kids are still chuckling at some of his stories!

        Cobb and Co Stagecoach experience
        perfect outback morning tea with scones on arrival; Then a fantastic & fun coach ride; Back for the funniest comedy show, a delicious Billy can lunch and then an old-time movie in the theater. A fantastic and jam packed few hours; Well worth the money.

        Fun night experience bush tucker and entertainment
        Fun night starting with bus pickup at Apex Park, followed by leisurely sunset cruise aboard the paddleboat. The meal of hearty stew for the carnivores and a delicious vegie curry for the herbivores. Dietary preferences were well catered. The bus poetry was well done and very professional. All the staff were very friendly. Movie was interesting, although acting medicore. Good story. Fully satiated from the hearty main meal followed by apple slice and custard, I had no room for tea and damper but heard lots of positive comments that it was delicious. Great night.

        Worthwhile sunset cruise and Stockman's experience.
        This experience has it all. A sunset cruise on the beautiful Thomson River, followed by a Stockman's dinner and a theatre show about Captain Starlight. The evening was completed with tea and damper. The bus to the event was helpful.

      The whole trip was extremly well planned and kept to schedule (when everyone arrived back to the bus on time). The driver/guide was excellent with a great knowledge of the local area. Our trip to the Dinosaur museum was excellent and informative. We were supplied with tea/coffee and home made anzac biscuits for morning tea.

      Our Winton Discovery Day Tour is a full day - so planning is key. It is extra helpful when our guests all meet at the agreed times. We agree the award-winning Australian Age of Dinosaur Museum is an absolute highlight and the perfect place to experience prehistory! Thanks for sharing your experience!

      Ability to relax rather than do the drive. The Dino discovery centre. Would really have liked to go to the actual Dino stampede site but that want an option. Matilda Centre was a very pleasant surprise.

      Winton is such an interesting place with so much to see. We're happy to hear you enjoyed the trip there and back. The journey there is often where Richard shares his own stories about growing up as a bush kid!

      We booked this Tour, online, directly with the venue before we left home because we were unable to book a tour with the local Tour Company. We drove ourselves to Winton from Longreach, a trip of about 11/2 hours each way, not difficult.

      Today we jumped on board the Outback Pioneers coach and drove to Winton to go and see the dinosaur museum
      The dinasour museum was Amazing . We visited Winton and the Waltzing Matilda Museum
      We explored the shops in the Main Street and bought souvenirs .
      We went to the North Gregory Hotel for lunch - the meals were beautiful .
      We walked out the back of the North Gregory Hotel to look at Arno ‘s Wall - what an eye opener . It was someone’s treasure ( once upon a time ) cemented to a concrete wall . Some of the things stuck in the wall were motorbikes type writers , lawn mower. Hubs , fans , sewing machine , oven doors .wheel trims , engine parts and the list goes on and on and on , so does the wall .
      I am so glad we caught the Outback Pioneers bus . They do such an amazing tour , well worth the money . We enjoyed our day out and I recommend it to all ages
      Also the North Gregory Hotel has a caravan Park out the back of the hotel.
