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
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
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 - Outback Dan & his fascinating station tour; Qantas Founders Museum - really interesting museum and Airpark Tour; Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame - lots of intriguing history; Australian Age of Dinosaurs - loved the laboratory & collections room tours, etc - 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
