These guys really know where to take you for that perfect outback experience. They go where others don't in a small group tour. Our drivers Geoff and Irving were very knowledgeable and went out of their way to maximise the benefit of our visit. We intend to use them again in the near future.

I have given the one day Mutawintji National Park tour 4 stars because it only just meets it's advertised description. Greater diversity and volume of indigenous art, or greater insights into indigenous art and culture by our guide, would be needed to earn the extra star, given that the tour involves at least 5.5 hours (without the rest or meal...

We went on this tour a week ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Geoff has a nice mix of knowledge, facts and humour. We were camped at Mutiwindji ( great site) and tagged along in our vehicle. The tour included sites of important Aboriginal gatherings. The hand stencils seemed to dance on the walls of the cave. The rock etchings were... More

I booked the Mutawintji historic site tour and had a great time. Geoff was knowledgeable and friendly with a good sense of humour. We had all the time we needed, no rush, and the historic site certainly lived up to expectations. Morning tea and lunch were delicious (and again, superbly organised). Wished I'd had time to do more tours with... More

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was suitable with our kids, aged 2 (carried in a kids backpack) and 4yrs. The Mutawintji site is really amasing and it was worth an overnight trip from Broken Hill to see it. Camping facilities were good - hot showers, complete with friendly green tree frogs!

Thanks for your feedback. I'm pleased you also feel Mutawintji is an amazing place, as do we. The facilities at the camp ground make this a great place to stay for a while, especially so that kids can enjoy the trip and enjoy all that this National Park has to offer.. More

This Tri State Safaris day trip was a very enjoyable experience, running from 8.30am to 4.30pm out of Broken Hill to Menindee and return, in a very well presented and well appointed 4WD vehicle. The pick up from my accomodation was punctual and the greeting very friendly, and the rest of the outing continued in a similar vein. The driver,... More

This really was a fantastic adventure starting in Darwin and finishing in Broome. With a group of only 13 travellers we received personal attention, we did fantastic walks, swam in beautiful pools below waterfalls but also had a relaxing time.
