While in Broken Hill we took a day tour to Mutawintji National Park with Tri-State Safaris. It simply could not have been better. Our driver/guide was Mark, an Aboriginal man who was knowledgeable about the history of the site, the geology, the plants and animals, and Aboriginal art and culture. We had a wonderful, really memorable experience.

Basically the tour consists of a 2 hour (one way) journey partly on dirt road in a 4wd and two guided walks in the Mutawintji National Park Historic Site. Our guide did a great job in explaining a lot about the amazing ancinent (thousands of years old) aboriginal rock paintings, engravings and the local aboriginal culture in general. However having...

We were a party of six adults and had booked two day tours - one to Menindee Lakes and the other around Broken Hill and Silverton. All destinations proved to be interesting, diverse and all inclusive. On both days we were fortunate to have Mark as our guide. He was professional, inclusive, down-to-earth and open to all our enquiries. His... More

This is a great, professional outfit. Mark was our guide for two days - Menindee Lakes and Silverton/Broken Hill. He was simply outstanding. Mark gave us an insight into Aboriginal culture in the area that we would never have known if not for his knowledge.

Based on recent experience I would advise not to book an outback tour until as close as possible to the departure date. Also before you do book check the weather forecast and if there is any sign of rain do not go ahead or you could be very disappointed. In my case an 8 day outback tour was completely washed... More

Hi Celtics9233. I appreciate your feedback. We are always disappointed when tours need to be altered due to rain and/or closed roads as we are fully aware that people often travel long distances just to start their tour, and a cancelled tour is not a good outcome. Your tour is only one of a number that have been rain affected... More
