Departing from  Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne, arrive at Longreach for registration  then transfers via ‘Gold Class’ coaches to your accommodation for a freshen up. Enjoy time at your leisure and make use of the  complimentary ‘Gold Class’ coaches that will be providing shuttle services to the  main events and attractions included in your package. You may like to use your  multi-visit pass to take in either the Australian  Stockman’s Hall of Fame or the Qantas Founders Museum. Entry for today’s country  races is included in your package and  offers a great opportunity to mingle with the  locals. So, jump on-board and make your  way to the races at your leisure (races  commence at 1pm).

Tonight is the  main event and it’s a casual affair  and comfortable foot-wear is recommended. Experience dining on the tarmac for  the ‘Under the Southern Cross’ celebration dinner and let the Qantas Founders  Museum host an evening of  networking sharing memories and celebrating  the milestones of Australia’s iconic airline. The spectacular Luminescent Light Show performance will conclude  the evening.

**Lunch is at  own expense today.
