Kinnon & Co Outback Accommodation
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I stayed at the Kinnon & Co Outback Lodge because of the association with all the other Kinnon & Co attractions. It didn't help as the attractions were either full or not functioning. That was disappointing. The location of the cabins is good, being between and very close to the Australian Stockmans Hall of Fame and the Qantas Founders Museum. You really need two days to do justice to these two attractions. Inside the cabins is very basic. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is small and the table takes up most of the room. Seats are wooden forms so you can't sit back and relax, unless you use the verandah chairs. Air conditioning is the old style and being in the bedroom it is somewhat inadequate for cooling or heating the rest of the cabin.

Dear hebburnman, thankyou for staying with us at Kinnon & Co Outback Lodges. Our tours run from 1st April to 31st October every year. Booking ahead for tours when you are on a limited time is always recommended to avoid disappointment, like yourselves, who were not able to get in on the day or wait for the next tour. We are thrilled you enjoyed the Hall of Fame and the Qantas Founders Museum with are both amazing museums which we are fortunate to have in Longreach.

Great people and great rooms and the rest of their business out there are top notch. The lodge we stayed in was clean and cool, beds were comfortable and sheets felt good, airconditioning worked good even with outside temps in the mid-high 30's, good pool that was enjoyed, and good spaces between the cabins.The staff treat you like family.

We stayed for 4 nights. The accommodation was great, clean & comfortable. The comments helped in deciding where to stay. Didn't disappoint. Had everything that was expected, kitchen, comfortable beds, air conditioning, plenty of cupboards. The only thing a chair would have been nice, but as we out doing all the tourist attractions (which Kinnons arranged) didn't have too much time in the cabins. Very comfortable to come back too after a long day. The location was a bit out of town but near some of the tourist spots and close to the airport for flying home.

Dear Biglizard1, thank you for your lovely review. Well done for researching accommodation options from others travellers reviews before deciding on where to stay and what to do. Trip Advisor is a great way of sorting through the maze of what's what when you hear directly from past experiences. We are thrilled you had a wonderful stay with us and also enjoyed our tours whilst in Longreach.

Kinnon & Co Outback Lodges is an ok place to stay.

We stayed in the Family Room so all of the review is based on this room.

Space: The room is a little cramped, having only 3 rooms, the master bedroom, dining/lounge/kids bedroom/ kitchen and the bathroom

Heating/Cooling: There is one reverse cycle air conditioner in the motel room, located in the master bedroom

Technology: One 20" TV

Extras: There is a small pool.
Located very close to Qantas Museum and Stockmans Hall of Fame.


Overall an average place to stay, mainly due to lack of space.

Dear HotPikelet, thank you for reviewing our property. The room you have described in your review is called a Standard Lodge, not a Family Room as you refer. We have Standard, Deluxe and Superior Lodges available, depending on what suits your budget. All rooms cater for minimum 4 people with the Superior catering for up to 8 people. The Standard being the cheapest room does have the least amount of floor space. The Deluxe and Superior both are two bedrooms, with two air conditioners, and as normal with accommodation, the price reflects the amenities. I hope you will stay with us on your next visit to Longreach, but please ask to view the different styles of rooms before deciding on something that is not quite suitable for your needs. Thank you.

I stayed here for 8 days when travelling for work. The welcome on arrival, the mid stay clean and the fabulous bed made for a great stay! Older style cabins that were spotless and contained everything you need. The one thing the cabin was missing was a comfortable chair to relax in.
