It’s where you will find endless opportunities, whether it be your dream job, a safe place to raise a family, a community that cares, or the freedom to be you. The Longreach, Ilfracombe, Isisford, and Yaraka communities are at the heart and soul of this region.

Although uniquely different, each town shares a common bond. They provide genuine opportunities for people from all walks of life to find their future. From farmers to financiers, or mechanics to musicians.

For those who seek adventure, to those who want all the outback offers – a place to just be. Whatever your dreams are, you can reach them in Longreach Region.

For centuries, Longreach has stood the test of time and grown in the hearts of many. From a place steeped in Aboriginal history and Australian folklore, to the industrial and agricultural booms of last century, the region continues to evolve. Longreach is the economic and social hub of Western Queensland, globally connected, but locally inspired. Longreach Region, it’s more than you imagined.
