Just returned from the Sunday-Thursday tour. We had a wonderful time. Alan and his team were always smiling and nothing was every too much trouble. OAT had private after hours tours and our group of 9 was truly privileged. Private a/h tour of the Age of Dinosaurs followed by BBQ Dinner on the Edge of the Escarpment to watch the setting sun and the stars by moonlight. Private function Dinner and Tour of the Qantas Founders Museum. Sunset River Cruise and Dining - Great Entertainment. Too many things to comment on but wonderful from beginning to end. Owners of the Abajaz Motel looked after us very well but sadly the venue, whilst clean and tidy, and the cooked breakfasts are generous, is maybe too outdated. Having said that, we were only ever there to sleep or rest. But a little more upmarket would be appreciated. Very noisy air cons.

Thank Colleen K

G'day Colleen and thanks very much for reviewing our Legendary Longreach and Winton Tour.
This tour has been our top seller for easily the last five years and we think we have the recipe just about right - of course it doesn't hurt that we are working in such a magic destination! Thanks again Colleen we enjoyed having you along on the tour.

Great night out. Commentary by tour guides gave us a lot of local information. Food, service, atmosphere and entertainment by local group 'Legends and Larrikins' was superb. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

I did the Winton Dinosaur Matilda day trip, was a great day out, very much enjoyed the Australian Age of Dinosaurs. Our driver Dave was knowedgeable, friendly and helpful, the coach was cool and comfortable and the lunch provided in Winton was ready and waiting, tasty and perfectly adequate. A good overall condensed introducton to the area. Good value for the money. Also did the Camden Station sunset tour with Outback Aussie and this was excellent also, they are a good company to deal with.

We have just returned from a 7 day Legendary Longreach and Winton tour and would have to say this is the perfect way to enjoy a real taste of the West, journeying out and back by rail on the Spirit of the Outback. We felt privileged to be part of some amazing experiences which are exclusive to Outback Aussie Tours. Our coach driver, Brad, was fantastic - nothing was too much trouble and his quirky sense of humour kept us all amused. Our 'journey of a lifetime' took in everything the west had to offer, including 3 cattle/sheep station tours, the Longreach School of the Air (very interesting), the Waltzing Matilda Centre, Australian Age of Dinosaurs and the Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways, the Qantas Founders Museum, the Stockman's Hall of Fame and the Drover's Sunset Dinner Cruise followed by a lovely dinner around the camp fire under the stars on the banks of the Thomson River. The entertainment provided by Grant and Michael (Heartland Theatre Larrikins and Legends Show) was a fitting way to end a perfect holiday! The incredible sunsets and the brilliance of the stars at night are something the west does to perfection!
