In a beautifully conceived building with an impressive multiarched design, this is a fine museum, and also a tribute to outback pioneers, early explorers, stockmen and indigenous Australians. Five themed galleries, some featuring interactive touch-screen displays, cover: Aboriginal culture; European exploration (there's a nifty map showing the trails of Burke and Wills, Ludwig Leichhardt, Ernest Giles and co); pioneers and pastoralists; 'Life in the Outback'; and the stockmans' gallery. Look out for the Outback Stockman Show, a live storytelling show held at 11am Tuesday to Sunday (adult/child $20/10).

The museum complex also includes a cafe, garden and souvenir shops. Tickets are valid for two days.
