TOUR ITINERARY 

Friday

This morning we will depart Brisbane (09:00) aboard our own private charter flight to Quilpie. On arrival in Quilpie (11:00) we will be met by Lyn Barnes and transferred to the Lyn Barnes Art Gallery where we will enjoy lunch. Lyn has been an artist for over 18 years and since settling in Quilpie, her work has become
known for capturing the vastness and ruggedness of the outback. Her use of the
vivid colours from the stunning blue of the sky to the richness of the red ochre has led her to be successfully exhibited around Australia, with works in many public and private collections. Lyn is also a Shire Councillor and will be happy to discuss the local history as well as the future of Quilpie.

After lunch we will transfer to Eromanga (about an hour’s drive from Quilpie) where we will check into the Cooper’s Country Lodge. This evening’s dinner will be served in the main hall of the Natural History Museum, with the
skeletons of local dinosaurs as dinner companions.

Saturday

After breakfast, we will walk over to the Natural History Museum for a “behind the scenes” tour of the museum. Watch how priceless ancient dinosaur bones are
preserved and you will get to meet “George” & “Cooper”, the two largest dinosaurs ever recovered in Australia.

After morning tea, we will drive to the Toompine Hotel, one of Australia’s most
remote outback pubs. Here we will have lunch featuring the local meat, gourmet
salads made from vegetables & fruit grown in the local area, followed by a homemade diet defying dessert. Please note that drinks are not included but can be purchased over the bar.

After lunch we will make the approximate hour’s drive back to Quilpie. After checking in at the Quilpie Motor Inn, there will be time to
freshen up before taking the opportunity to enjoy some clay target shooting for an hour or so.From there, we will head to the lake to
enjoy the sunset. Dinner will be a series of grazing platters served under the stars by the lake. Beer/wine/soft drink will be included.

Sunday

This morning, we will enjoy a full country breakfast served under the pergola. We
will then transfer to Quilpie Airport for our return flight to Brisbane.

We will depart Quilpie at 11:00, and, as we will have to make a technical stop in
Charleville, a light lunch will be served at Charleville Airport. We will arrive in Brisbane at approx. 1500.

Wine and Dine in Style!
