“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.

“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.
