  • Please pass on one almighty huge thank you to our head tour guides Brett & Kathy along with their assistant guides. What a wonderful crew indeed. I had a most wonderful tour with a great "bunch" of people. My thanks to you also, the office staff, in the smooth running & organisation of the appropriate paper work and dispatch of same. Last, but not at all least, to Alan & Sue. A great tour company folks. Keep up the good work & if there is to be any improvement to be made, gee, I'd like to know what it is. Once again, thank you so much for a most memorable outback tour. Regards & my very best wishes to all concerned & that goes to all of those great people who painstakingly run the cattle and sheep stations. May you have that rain when you need it.

  • Something for everyone! We did the Longreach Winton tour arriving by " Outback Spirit".Great trip with something for everyone, Robert and Cossie made everyone feel relaxed and got us to all our tours on time. The company owner made us lunch at his homestead one day and expressed how grateful the locals are that we had spent our tourist dollar in their region. We have been fortunate and spent quite a lot of time in the outback - l called this my soft tour-hard roofs and proper beds, however the sunset drinks, bbq and stargazing at the Age of Dinosaurs was a highlight level to anywhere else we have travelled - well done!

  • Longreach Winton Tour - Recently enjoyed a 7 day tour of Longreach and Winton with Aussie Tours. Owners Alan and Sue are to be congratulated for the consistently high level of professionalism of their business. Could not fault any part of it. Our driver Robert and his wife, tour hostess Cossie, added to the excellence of our experience with their depth of knowledge and obvious love of this beautiful part of Australia. The range of activities was well thought out including a visit to Alan and Sue's faithfully restored heritage home. The isolated dinosaur museum and stampede were among the many highlights their accessibility made easy via the well-maintained and comfortable coach. Would highly recommend this company and trip.

  • Amazing outback tour! From the minute we stepped off the train we were made to feel special and shown how important tourism is to the survival of the country areas of Queensland. Our tour guides were Rob and Cossie and they were incredibly friendly, organised and knowledgeable. We experienced first hand some of the reality of life around Longreach and Winton as well as the amazing museums and experiences on offer. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of cultural heritage that is celebrated through Qantas Museum, School of Distance Education, Stockman's Hall of Fame, Qantilda Museum, Dinosaur Stampede and Age of Dinosaurs. The tours were brilliant, the food amazing and the company excellent. I recommend this tour with this company to everyone, we should all experience and celebrate the people of the outback.

  • Great Value, more than you expect in a tour! From our arrival by train from Brisbane, we had a full tour package. We had a daily program issued on arrival & we visited Qantas Founders Museum & were taken with a guide over an early version of a 747 as well as a 707, we visited the Aust. Stockman's Hall of Fame with an excellent show under cover. We had a tour with the owner of Strathmore Station property relating what happens daily as well as droughts & floods, the care of the land and the care of animals. We had all meals included at hotels, farms & roadside as well as morning teas. On one night we had a Sunset Cruise, BBQ & entertainment on the side of a billabong, just amazing. On this tour we also visited Winton for 2 days where we visited the Aust. Age of Dinosaurs Museum & the Stampede of the Dinosaurs display at Lark Quarry. Our driver Robert & his wife Cosi attended to us all the way with careful driving & attention to detail at each stop. Just marvelous in all aspects.

  • Terrific range of attractions covered in Legendary Longreach and Winton Tour! Tour bus and wonderful hosts greeted us at Longreach Station after a 25 hour train trip from Roma Street Station in Brisbane. Each day we were greeted with enthusiasm and details of the days activities. Each evening a precis of the expectations of the following day. Meals at each place were healthy and wholesome. All attractions were marvellous and staff informative and knowledgeable. Altogether a most marvellous, memorable experience and week away in the West of Queensland. Congratulations on a fabulous team of people who work together to give tourists a great welcome!

  • Legendary Longreach and Winton Tour - John & I thoroughly enjoyed our recent holiday to Longreach & Winton. Big thank you to Brett & Kathy as well as Smithy & Sue for your expertise, warmth & friendliness. Your personal touches made us feel as though we quickly became part of a big family. Everything was well organised with top class accommodation. I'd like to make special mention of the Sunset Cruise on the Thomson which was followed by great food & entertainment; as well as smoko at Strathmore Station and lunch at Rosebank Station. Thank You

  • Amazing Longreach and Winton Tour! Each day was eclipsed with more venues and attractions ably guided and narrated by Kathy and Brett of Outback Aussie. We didn't have to lift a finger apart from getting our bags to the bus and all meals, check ins, venues and entertainment were all supplied - an amazing experience and such great value. We never knew so much existed in that part of the world and I would not hesitate to recommend Outback Aussie - Alan and Sue Smith's family run Company to the world. We shall return.
