Ticket & Tent packages announced as region fills for final weekend in April!
Where will you be on the last weekend of April? If your answer is LONGREACH in the heart of the Queensland Outback, then prepare for a party for the ages because the region is filling faster than a whipcrack over a campfire!
In fact, demand is so high for accommodation in Longreach that organisers of the inaugural ROAD TO RODEO event on April 30 and May 1 have just announced TICKET AND TENT packages, but they are also being booked quickly!
Road to Rodeo – An Isa Rodeo Experience brings a taste of the legendary Mount Isa Mines Rodeo experience to Longreach. Building on the dual legends of rodeo and Outback Queensland, the two days of Road to Rodeo features a full rodeo competition, a Rodeo Rock concert on Saturday evening with a knock-out music line-up, food & wine, low ‘n’ slow BBQ, Brown Brother’s Proseccos Paddock (wine tasting), markets and sideshow alley, competitor meet & greets, cooking demonstrations, bush poetry and more. The outback festival is perfectly at home in Longreach, home to stockmen, shearers, sunsets and big blue skies.
“We are so thrilled that accommodation at Longreach is almost at capacity for the Road to Rodeo weekend! However, being the home of big skies, we just had to create more options for travellers, event and rodeo fans, and so our Ticket and Tent experiences were born!” said Natalie Flecker, CEO, Isa Rodeo Limited and Road to Rodeo.
“Our tents are cabin style, and all twin share, fitted with 12 volt lights, fully screened and have a carpet floor. Inside are two foldout single beds, complete with all your bed linen, two chairs and a table; there’s shared amenities and street lighting is erected between the tents so it’s easy to find your way back home after a full day and night of rodeo sights, tastes and thrills! So, consider Longreach ready and welcome the world for Road to Rodeo!”
