Watercolour Workshop

13 spectacular days of painting and exploration in the Queensland Outback in Longreach and Winton. Longreach is the gateway to the ultimate Queensland outback experience, named after the “long reach” of the Thomson River. From immersive experiences that provide a flavour of contemporary rural life to the breathtaking natural landscapes that snake the riverbanks, Longreach offers an endless array of iconic attractions. Winton has a rich history with links to the Great Shearers’ Strike, and Waltzing Matilda but today the town is almost as well known for something far more ancient, dinosaurs.
