Enjoy outback travelling with experienced company, join us on your next "Outback" adventure

Not everyone wants to travel alone , It can be quite daunting by yourself in the middle of the outback, especially if things go wrong. I have been involved with four wheel driving along with outback travel for over thirty years now. I still travel solo occasionally, however I do prefer the company of like minded people these days. Safety in numbers as they say, come "atagalong" with us.

FAQs

Refunds

All tour deposits are held in a Trust Account and are fully refundable should Covid-19 disrupt tours or tour participants.                                        

What Type of Vehicle is suitable for a Tour.

Any 4WD vehicle that has reasonable ground clearance and a high/low Transfer Case. Note: All wheel drive vehicles will not be accepted on any tour.       

Do I need to modify my Four Wheel Drive Vehicle?

For your safety and ours we ask you to install rated recovery points on the front using high tensile rated bolts to secure the recovery points. A rear rated recovery point must be carried to insert into your tow bar with rated shackles. They are not expensive to purchase and are easily installed.

** Please note tie down points that are not rated recovery points and can break, potentially causing personal injury and damage to another vehicle. Should you lose momentum and become bogged, we will not be in the position to use a winch or snatch strap to recover your vehicle without them. ** 

If your vehicle is in good condition, we simply advise you to have it serviced and inspected by a reliable 4×4 expert mechanical business. Explain to them the trip you are about to undertake and ask them to pay particular attention to your vehicle’s suspension. Pack your vehicle correctly (not overloaded) and your standard suspension should be more than adequate.

Ensure you have a minimum of 60% tread on all of your Tyres. If at all possible carry two spare tyres on rims. Tyres must be all terrain tyres not the standard issue fitted by the Vehicle Manufacturer 

Please refer to Tour Preparations.

What happens if my Vehicle breaks down?

We do our best to get you going again and will contact our 4×4 specialist via satellite phone for advice as required. Should we not be able to get you going, then we will get you to a safe place and help with arranging a recovery. In the Insurance marketplace there are companies that offer recovery policies.

We have never been remote Four Wheel Driving!

Our tour guide is right there to assist you in any given situation where possible.

Approximately how long is each day?

We like to depart camp by 8:30am, we stop for morning tea and lunch. We will stop at points of interest throughout the day and we aim to set up camp with enough time for you to enjoy the sunset each day.   

What is Bush Camping?

Bush camping is just that, out with Nature in the bush. Depending on the tour destination, we may be able to camp in a location that has long drop toilets for example, however generally we are out in the bush with no facilities.

What if I get sick?

We are equipped with a Satellite Phone to contact RFDS or any other Emergency Responder. We are trained First Aiders, and carry an Emergency First Aid Kit that includes a Heart Defibrillator and Blood Pressure Monitoring Machine. We do hope you will be in perfect Health prior to Departure.

Do we pay for lots of extras?

Our tours are as Advertised, any Activity outside our listed Brochure is at your own expense.
