Information

In 1974, Hugh Sawrey, well known stockman and outback artist, enlisted supporters for his dream for a memorial to the explorers, overlanders, pioneers and settlers of remote Australia. To build and outfit the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame, they had to raise AUD$12.5 million.
The chosen site in Longreach in central western Queensland was once a teamster's stop beside a large waterhole. From humble beginnings as a stock route junction on the 'long reach' of the Thomson River, the town is now serviced by road, rail and air.
