The Best of The Outback! We have just had the best holiday of all time, every day there was something different and our guide was a fantastic, caring person that had a great knowledge of this great country he also possessed a great sense of fun, we flew to Brisbane from Sydney, travelled on the overnight train to longreach and had 4 nights there. We also met some lovely couples that we will keep in touch with.Pat C, Sydney
The whole tour was great! From the moment we stepped off the plane and we had Wade to greet us everything went well. The four and half days going around Longreach and Winton was well organised with very friendly staff wherever we went. Apart from the boat trip and show (which were excellent) the other highlights were the Sunset Dinner at Camden Park Station and the tour and lunch at Rosebank Station. All food provided was of a high quality wherever we went and transport comfortable (even the 4 wheel drive Bus). I would definitely recommend this tour.Toni M, Brisbane
Brilliant! Thanks to the awesome Outback Aussie Tours team for a fantastic tour! Outback Aussie Tours were the perfect hosts and without them, my time in the Outback would not have been half as good. I loved every minute of my Outback experience. Particularly the Drovers Sunset Cruise - relaxing sunset cruise down the Thomson River with beautiful bird life, friendly turtles and amazing sunset colours; Smithy's Outback Dinner and Live Show - delicious, live music & love the setting; Camden Park Station - interesting station & Homestead tour followed by incredible sunset & delicious dinner at the fabulous "Outback Yacht Club"; Longreach School of Distance Education - fascinating, want to bring my children back here; Qantas Founders Museum - really interesting museum and Jets Tour; Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame - lots of intriguing history and loved the entertaining Outback Stockman's Show (what a great character & loved his animals too!); Australian Age of Dinosaurs - loved the laboratory & collections room tours, and the sunset dinner was spectacular high up on the mesa; Lark Quarry - incredible to see & learn of what happened there millions of yrs ago. I could go on and on! Most of all, thanks Outback Aussie Tours for being so welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable, caring, interested, entertaining and such incredible hosts! I won't forget my absolutely fantastic time in the Outback for a very long time..Pollysan27, Sunshine Coast
Just Great! We booked a getaway tour package with these guys and I can tell you, there is nothing you need to worry about. Longreach had, had several inch's of rain before we had arrived so much so that the train couldn't run but the folk at Aussie Outback tours did everything that they could do and more to make our trip special. These folk went the extra mile and more. We couldn't speak more highly of them. Thanks guys for the great adventure.Mindencattle, QLD
We used outback Aussie tours on our recent trip to Longreach. We combined a journey on the Spirit of the Outback and several of this company's many attractions over a seven day period. Outback's driver met us at the railway station together with many other travellers and our experience started immediately with a short tour of the town before being dropped off at our hotel. We were picked up and dropped off for dinner that night and the next day we experienced to QANTAS Founders museum, the Longreach School of the Air and a afternoon and sunset dinner at Camden Park farm which were all great attractions. The next day was spent on a trip to Winton where we visited the Dinosaur Attraction and Winton township. The following day we travelled to Ilfracombe for a look at this lovely little town before headed back into Longreach and the Stockmans Hall of Fame. That same evening went on a sunset cruise on the Thompson River which included nibbles and professional commentary from,a very knowledgeable skipper. We chose to walk back to Railway Station on our last morning but Outback Aussie Tours will pick you up and drop you off at the station if required. This was a fabulous holiday where we didn't have to worry about anything except to be ready for pickup at our accommodation. This company is highly recommended for a hassle free outback experienceTmartin123, Sunshine Coast
