“This was our sixth trip with Outback Spirit and it was all as we had expected. Our coach crew were informative, helpful, and kept us informed without being over intrusive.
Accommodation was just as we had expected. There was plenty of food, the meals sitting out on the verandah were very pleasant and the Lost City is just stunning. This may have been one of the highlights of the trip.
We believe the trip was another first class time.
Our congratulations to all.”

“We have nothing but the utmost praise for the whole experience. We were looked after so well that we didn’t want to get off the bus! Outback Spirit had ensured that we didn’t have to think about anything but enjoying ourselves from the moment we got on the bus in the mornings until we went to bed at night. We learnt such a lot… and we came away feeling so knowledgeable. We had a wonderful group of people to travel with and it was definitely an enjoyable experience.
We will most certainly be using Outback Spirit again.”

“We would like to pass on to you our thanks for an excellent trip. This is our second trip with you. The itinerary for these trips had been well researched and we felt gave excellent coverage of both areas of outback Australia. The vehicles were comfortable, clean, well maintained and well suited to the terrain through which we travelled. Your office staff have always been most helpful and polite and obviously all the ‘behind the scenes’ work is well managed and organised, providing an excellent product.
Of course this would all fall apart if it were not for your excellent tour leaders/drivers. They work extremely hard, long hours, are always patient and helpful, cope with unexpected difficulties, manage a range of personalities with a smile and positive approach. These leaders work extremely hard to acquire and develop their knowledge of the areas in which they work and show a passion for what they are doing.
As travellers we could not have been better looked after, both through the organisation of the Tours and the dedicated leadership and care of the personnel on the ground. We look forward to being able to travel with you again sometime in the future.”

“Where do I begin to tell you what a great trip I had. We are so lucky to live in this amazing country.
The tour leader/driver/tea maker/peace maker/joke maker/lovely boy – John Woods – was wonderful, took care of me & encouraged & helped me to go to places I didn’t think I could manage.
The accommodation was exceptional.
The food was excellent – far too excellent!
The coach was… roomy, comfortable, lots of exciting roads & river crossing’s.
I learned about things I knew nothing about – Weipa Mines, Horn Island, Cooper Creek Wilderness Tour, The Gouldian finches at Lotus Bird Lodge. And I stood at the top!
Thank you for a brilliant holiday.”
“Rick, our driver/guide, was excellent. He was highly knowledgeable as well as being highly skilled in his driving. He shared all sorts of items of interest to all as he drove. He assisted people with particular interests as he got to know us. His stops for places of interest, and his morning, lunch and afternoon tea breaks were well – spaced and at very pleasant stopping places. He was able to sho us brolgas, turtles, snakes, a huge dingo, cycads, a massive scrub-turkey mound, wedge-tailed eagles feeding on wallabies, Cooktown Orchids, ant hill, etc.
The food was outstanding throughout with all facilities providing outstanding food even in the most isolated places.
All arrangements from the beginning to the end of the trip, eg flights and flight transfers, were well planned by office staff and carried out meticulously.
Thank you for such a good trip”
Des & Lois, VIC
“Your company deserves congratulations…and the positive word we are sharing with friends about our experience.
Everything was as good as possible for the destination.
Deserving special mention is Rick, our driver and ‘host’. His encyclopaedic knowledge of the route, his easy interaction with people he regularly encountered along the way. His generous nature and unlimited patience, punctuality and excellent organisation made being ‘on his team’ a pleasure and much fun. His driving skill was exemplary and we felt totally safe at all times, despite the challenges of the terrain.”
