Visit the historic 'dry bottom' Chinaman's well that was built following the gold rush.

Dan Walker from Camden Station is a true outback character. He shares his love of the land and of Longreach. We toured the property and learned of the long history the Walker family has in Longreach.
Oh and the morning tea, especially the scones and cream (made and prepared by his mum) was absolutely delicious.
On a personal note, I would like to thank Dan for dropping us into town from our accommodation on our first day in Longreach. He came to the retreat to pick up a couple for one of his tours and offered to drop us into town. He then gave us a quick tour of the town of Longreach. Such wonderful country hospitality. Thank you.

The Walker family (the owners) give you the tour. They tell you about their lives and history of the place. Great country hospitality! Very nice historic home, with a large living room. Queen Elizabeth II visited this home. (I say that to show the importance of the family and the home at that time, I think it was around 1970, not celebrity adulation for the Queen.) One of my favourite activities in Longreach.

Our Fun Over 50 tour took us to Camden Park Station for a Champagne Breakfast which has been set up for such occasions in an old shearing shed. This was a great way to start our day - a delicious breakfast followed by a tour with 'Outback Dan'. We were also privileged to have a walk through the farmhouse itself and learn about it's proud and interesting history.

A visit to Camden Park Station is a great encouragement to see how the Walker family is moving with the times. The solar farm is quite large and is feeding into the grid.
The meal served in the shearing shed was very yummy.

What an awesome experience. Daniel and his mum Lyn share stories about rural life and how Camden Park needed to diversify from sheep to cattle and solar farming. Interesting to hear about the Amazing Race spending time there too. Meet other family members over the delicious baked morning tea treats included in the entrance cost. Definitely a must do!!

Great introduction to outback Queensland by Dan ...family of the owners of Camden Park. Dan guided us on our bus to lovely sunset drinks. His mum Lyn is the perfect host and cooked our dinner along with Dan's wife. The shearing shed was a perfect venue for a taste of the outback. Do yourself a favour & go visit the backbones of our rural heritage.
