Private and Small Group Outback NSW Tours for 2-4 adults or families from 2-7 people per 4WD vehicle are now available from Sydney to Broken Hill, Corner Country, Mungo, Bourke and beyond, starting in June.
You are assured to be safe and comfortable with our 27 years experience with small and private group tours in remote areas and outback New South Wales.
With Covid-19 limitations, these private and small group tours are the best way to enjoy travel, have fun and keep your friends and family safe.
With Covid-19 limitations, our private and small group tours are the best way to enjoy travel, have fun and keep your friends and family safe.
“These private and small group tours are a great way to escape Covid-19 lockdown and enjoy remote and outback wilderness areas, explore amazing parts of NSW, and support local communities while minimising Covid-19 risks” says Richard O’Neill, owner of Spirit Safaris. “Normally we operate in all states of Australia, so comply with the best safe work practices in the industry.”
People can travel as a couple or bring one or two of their friends and know that they are avoiding the crowds in buses or larger groups. As a small or private group, stops can be at the customers’ convenience or their places of special interest.
Broken Hill, which once had its own stock exchange, is a tour highlight. Guests visit the original BHP mine site, the Line of Lode memorial, Pro Harts Gallery, the Living Outback Sculptures and marvel at the history and size of the birthplace of the “Big Australian”, BHP. Shorter tours are also available that meet the train service to Sydney, and tour to Cameron Corner, Innamincka, Lake Eyre, Flinders Ranges and Coongie Lakes.
TheSilo Art Trailis part of the 12 day tour, and is a new phenomenon of massive and beautiful artworks on outback grain silos in remote country towns. The artworks are a photographers delight, with such uniquely Australian images.
Supporting regional communities with visitors and bringing much needed income to country towns affected by drought and or bushfires, is also a primary intention of these remote regional tours.
These very personal small group tours are connecting people to each other and unique nature and the extraordinary beauty and history in our own backyard.
“Our GXL Toyota Landcruisers have a proven safety record and are very comfortable, as expressed by many passengers over the years,” says Mr O’Neill, a fifth-generation Australian with strong family connections to the land.
The 12 day tour includes visiting such sites as the Siding Springs Observatory in the Warrumbungle Ranges near Coonabarabran, Mungo National Park, Broken Hill, and the Darling River Run, Burke and Wills camp on the banks of Menindee Lakes. People can take a cruise on the Jandra paddleboat from Bourke and revisit the ancient Aboriginal fish traps in Brewarrina that are more than 40,000 years old.
Silverton and the movie sets where Mad Max and other Aussie icons were made, is on the list, and guests dine at Mario’s Palace Hotel, still with its incredible artworks as revealed in the movie Pricilla Queen of the Desert fame.
Cameron Corner, the Dingo Fence and Tibooburra are included to really take in the best of Outback NSW
These Private and Small Group Outback NSW Tours commence from June 2020 through to November and then into 2021.
“This time of year we are usually operating tours in the Kimberley and remote areas such as the Canning Stock Route, Simpson Desert and from Broken Hill and South Australia including Lake Eyre, Arkaroola and the Flinders Ranges. The Covid-19 situation has caused us to consolidate, so travellers can now have an exciting adventure closer to home in New South Wales, reaching some of these unique places in these very capable and comfortable off-road vehicles.
Guests waiting in airport queues to catch a flight is also not needed, as tours depart Sydney or Broken Hill, and can often pick up guests enroute.
