We took the Aboriginal rock art day tour with Tri State Tours. This was a great way to travel beyond the usual tourists spots around Broken Hill and we greatly appreciated the attention of our guide and the sharing of his knowledge of "bush tucker" and pointing out so many things of interest along the way.

We chose this company for our Menindee Lakes experience, despite it being $40 pp more expensive than another local provider, because it has been a consistent NSW and Australian tourism multi-award winner. But our recent experience makes me wonder whether that will continue in the future given the company has a new owner. While on our one-day Menindee Lakes tour... More

Hi Mumbo51, Thank you for your honest feedback. Our company has always held customer satisfaction in high regard, and this value is one that is upheld by our new ownership. So much so, in fact, that the founders of Tri State Safaris have remained as managers of the company to train and guide their successor over the several months prior... More

This was our highlight of our trip to Broken Hill. Picked up from our Hotel and off we went and got a feeling and glimpse of an outback experience. Traveled 20thousend km by our selfs through rough Australian country ones, it was nostalgic for us. Walking in a sandy water bed, watched by mountain goats above the rocks. Seeing memorabilia...

I recently did the one day tour of Broken Hill and surrounds, including a few hours in Silverton. A great day that was very full with lots to see but it didn't feel too rushed. My tour guide, Irving, was terrific, very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended.

While in Broken Hill we took a day tour to Mutawintji National Park with Tri-State Safaris. It simply could not have been better. Our driver/guide was Mark, an Aboriginal man who was knowledgeable about the history of the site, the geology, the plants and animals, and Aboriginal art and culture. We had a wonderful, really memorable experience.
