“You need to do this tour to appreciate all that surrounds you here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Wonderfully informative and informal. Great to hear all the history from two friendly and knowledgeable experts on their heritage, Jocelyn and Adam. A great tour that explained so much and is so different from what we learn in the UK media. It's a "must do" tour so that you can appreciate all that surrounds you in this beautiful country.

“Fascinating Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Absolutely loved this tour. It was the insight to the whole aboriginal world that was never taught to me in school. Adam and Jocelyn are extremely engaging guides who have so much information and stories delivered in a riveting way. The antidotes and knowledge of the area were fascinating. I had no idea we had such amazing history on our own back door. Yengo National Park has a breath taking view at the top, if I had not be on a guided tour, I would not have been able understand any of the spiritual carvings or their significance. Their information on bush medicine and food is a real eye opener.

Great to go with any age group!
