We recently did a day tour with Michael to see the wildlife and woolshed in Kinchega National Park south of Broken Hill.

We did the tag along tour into the restricted area, which was well worth seeing. Irving seemed knowledgeable but often didn't wait for the group to be together before starting his talk. I could have spent more time in the restricted area so I would like to see a longer tour to allow time for wandering or having lunch.

We saw dingo, wedgetailed eagles, brolgas, emu, kangaroos and plenty of birdlife. Tri State is certainly professional and did all they could to give... More

Had a great tour with our guide Michael - saw some fantastic aboriginal art - rock carvings and stencils, with some great context and perspective from our very knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended.
