Based in Queensland’s central outback town of Longreach, Outback Aussie Tours (OAT) is a multi-award winning Savannah Guide Operator that has been operating tours for over 35 years. We provide escorted, accommodated Australian Outback tours and flexible short break packages from Longreach, Cairns & Brisbane to favourite Outback Queensland destinations including Longreach & Winton, Birdsville, Corner Country, Gulf Savannah and Cape York & Torres Strait. Careful research, well-established contacts and a detailed local knowledge are the backbone of our touring operations and set Outback Aussie Tours apart as a leading outback touring operator. The company also specialises in co-ordinating Australian Outback tours for incentive, special interest groups and events.
The company has come a long way from when Alan Smith, a restless 21-year-old bush boy with a dream, started operations in 1988 with photocopied brochures, a camp oven, a billy, and Tilly the troop carrier. Some guests, still touring with Alan, vividly recall jolting around in Tilly! Not only did Alan survive as a tour operator in a remote marginal area, but he grew his business into a successful, highly renowned, and internationally recognised operation, with a fleet of state-of-the art and comfortable vehicles and a highly professional touring team – trained to Savannah Guides standards with an in-depth local knowledge.
