We did the 5 hour tour with Micky and we could not have had a better experience. He was knowledgeable, took us to places that we would never have found ourselves, and explained how the mining all worked really well. A lovely way to spend time in Westport. Strongly recommended.

Outstanding out west tour to Denniston. Yes you can drive up yourself , but in doing so you can really miss out. We took the tour with Mickey form Outwest Tours and were rewarded with a day that far exceeded our expectations. Mike’s knowledge of the area the mines and the history were second to none. He brought the area to life and covered parts of the environment you wouldn’t know about if you didn’t have his local knowledge. We can’t recommend this tour and these guys enough, if you want to know Westgowith Outwest.

We did the Denniston tour with Mitch, he was born there and brought the area to life with stories of his younger days interwoven with life in the coal business and the wider history of Denniston and the coalfields, as well as an insight into the greater Westport area now and in the past. Having a 4WD vehicle we could access out of the way places including an old fan house. We took our own lunch but sat down for a cuppa at the old high school, now a museum with a well-done mock-up mine (might need a torch!). Views from the top of the incline are spectacular. We would love to return and do one of the other tours, they sound equally interesting. Many thanks to Mitch, Mickey, Doreen and team, very well done!
