Les Hiddins “The Bush Tucker Man”
If anyone can claim to be an authority on the outback, it's Les Hiddins. After 7 years, he's still an integral part of the Outback Spirit team.
Hey g’day there,
I’m Les Hiddins. You probably know me as the ‘Bush Tucker Man’ from the ABC.
I’m delighted that so many fellow Australians want to have a good look around the outback, and if you’re reading this then you’re obviously contemplating doing just that. But, who will you travel with? Rather than me trying to tell you to go with Outback Spirit, let me share with you why I’m involved with them. When you boil it all down it’s pretty simple actually. They’re the best.
When they approached me 7 years ago, I had a good look at the organisation. After all, I don’t want to be involved with a backyard mob any more than you do! But right then and there, I could see that this company was different. For a start, it’s not run by some big multi-national. It’s still owned and run by its founders, a couple of brothers from Albury, and they’re as passionate about Australia as I am. But what really stood out was their professionalism and commitment to their passengers. They realise that people are booking their trip of a lifetime, and they are simply hell bent on delivering. I really like that, because at the end of the day you’re an important passenger to these guys, not just a number on a computer screen.
If you’re ready for the adventure of a lifetime, then believe me – no one does it better than Outback Spirit.
But don’t take my word for it.
See for yourself.
