Outback Queensland Region
The Adventure Way takes you from Brisbane to Adelaide via Queensland's richest grain and cotton producing area surrounding Dalby. It travels through Brigalow and belah belts to the outback plains where mulga lines the road and eventually gives way to a treeless gibber landscape at the Queensland, South Australia border. From Innamincka, follow the historic Strzelecki Track to the Flinders Ranges and finally to Adelaide. The rewards of the journey are many, discovering the awe-inspiring landscape, the native flora and fauna, the rich history of early pioneers, opal fossicking and the spirit of adventure.
The Kinnon and Co. Thomson River Cruises are more than just a River Cruise. Watch the sun set while cruising on the historic Thomson Belle Paddlewheeler or Thomson Princess Riverboat. Afterwards, on the banks, enjoy a drover's dinner and entertainment around a campfire. Turn back the clock and enjoy the History and Heritage that this country and region was built on. Other tours owned by Kinnon and Co: Cobb and Co Tours, Starlight's Spectacular Live Show, Clancy's on the Thomson overnight experience, The Station Store, and Vintage Bicycle Hire.
After exploring the Prehistoric World at Kronosaurus Korner, they have the ideal place for you to visit. The fossil hunting sites are approximately 12 kilometres to the north of Richmond and are easily accessible to all vehicles. You don't require any digging tools - in fact most people don't have any equipment and still manage to make wonderful finds. Some of the fossils that are found in the area include belemnites, fish bones and scales, inoceramus shells and shark teeth. Fossickers are reminded that you are more than welcome to bring your discoveries back to Kronosaurus Korner for identification.
