Department Of Agriculture Fisheries And Forestry Longreach

Department Of Agriculture Fisheries And Forestry Longreach, Longreach is a town in Central West Queensland, Australia, approximately 700 km (430 mi) from the coast, west of Rockhampton. The town is named after the “long reach” of the Thomson River on which it is situated. The town was gazetted in 1887, and the railway reached the town in 1892, causing the population to grow. It is the administrative centre of the Longreach Regional Council, which was established in 2008 as a merger of the former Longreach, Ilfracombe, and Isisford shires.
The town is on the Tropic of Capricorn. The main industries of the area are cattle, sheep, and, more recently, tourism.
