Been locked up in isolation too long, need to dust off those cobwebs and really blow off some stream? Then an adventure in the good old Aussie outback may just do the trick – and Tri State Safaris Outback Tours are just the team to deliver!
Tri State Safaris Outback Tours (winner of 6 golds at the Australian Tourism Awards) not only specialise in tours inspired by our big brown (actually more reddish) land, they can expertly tailor adventures to create bespoke experiences.
At the very heart of outback adventure country, the Broken Hill region is a living, breathing time capsule where the great mining prosperity of yesteryear blends seamlessly with a rising modern art scene, all set amid a sprawling desert landscape. It’s a place of huge skies, red rocky earth and a fascinating and internationally significant history.
Tri State Safaris offers local insight into a large range of popular travel destinations from Broken Hill, which can be directly and easily accessed by car, flight or train out of Sydney, Melbourne, Mildura and Adelaide. All tours are mapped out in a way that allow participants to see and experience as much of the Australian outback as possible in the time they have available.
With a tantalizing range of tours to choose from – if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, the expert adventure team will happily create it for you!
1-2 day tours range from relishing the serenity at Mutawintji National Park, witnessing rock engravings from long ago through to exploring historic buildings, mine sites and the stunning night sky.
As tempting as these are, it’s safe to assume that after being confined by COVID-19 for months on end, a longer tour is required (and while on the topic, rest assured that there is full COVID safety and compliance with all tours and experiences!) One of the most popular Tri State Safaris Outback Tours is the 3 day Outback Adventure Tour – which highlights some of the outback’s finest, history, wildlife and stunning landscapes, all in one. Enjoy the picturesque landscapes of Medindee lakes with a river cruise, learn about the history and indigenous culture of Wilcannia, absorb the tranquility and abundant wildlife at Warrawong on the Darling, and stay at the famous Underground motel at White Cliffs (one to tick off the bucket list!).
For those looking to experience all that the outback has to offer, but in a more stylish and comfortable manner – then one of these deluxe tours may be a better fit.
The 3 day Mungo Deluxe Eco Tour centers around Aboriginal culture with a little luxury thrown in. This tour is a fabulous opportunity to soak up the stunning red landscape, without having to sacrifice creature comforts. Experiencing the mystical ‘Walls of China’ at sunset will form lifelong memories as well as marveling at the continuously shifting Perry Sandhills. Trentham Estate Winery on the banks of the Murray River is the ideal lunch spot to reflect on travelling through the Willandra Lakes World Heritage listed region and historic Wentworth and Pooncarie.
Have an extra day up your sleeve? Then the 4 Day Deluxe Broken Hill Highlights Tour may be the one for you. With ‘deluxe’ being the operative word, this tour includes all delicious meals and A+ accommodation. Base yourself at the new Broken Hill Outback resort in your own king spa cabin while taking in the best of the area. Experience the serenity of the Menindee Lakes with an hour cruise, the majestic scenery at Kinchega and Mutawintji National Parks, Aboriginal and indigenous art dating back thousands of years, native wildlife up close in their natural habit and tour around the local arts scene and famous movie set locations (ever hear of Mad Max and Priscilla Queen of the Desert?).
A popular option for those of us who love our cameras, from the professional photographer through to the happy snapper, the 4 Day Corner Country Tour is perfect for those looking to capture the outback in its truest form and at its most authentic. Think colour, nature and scenery in overload – you will be amazed at natures contrasting colours, endless horizons, vibrant red sand dunes and rugged escarpments. You’ll call the Underground Motel at White Cliffs home while you ‘noodle’ for opal in the working fields, explore the stunning landscapes at Sturt National Park and Milparinka, visit Cameron Corner where three states meet and all the while soaking in an abundance of vibrant vegetation, wildlife and birds along the way.
Visit the world heritage listed Mungo National Park, Menindee region and the majestic Darling River. Explore the copper mining heritage of Cobar, experience indigenous culture and natural beauty at Warrawong on the Darling, the heritage sites of Mutawintji National Park and the famous underground White Cliffs hotel. This tour even has you enjoying a yarn and a tinny or two with locals at the Ivanhoe pub!
Got your own 4WD and would prefer a tour where you can ‘tag along’ by driving your own vehicle instead? Tri State Safaris Outback Tours has that sorted too! The Tag Along Tours are a great option for those wanting the company of others, without the hassle of planning the trip, asking for directions, transporting and cooking your own food – Tri State Safaris takes care of it all! Not to mention the fact that you’re welcome to tag along to any tour that takes you fancy.
Adventure touring in the outback just doesn’t get any easier, any more enjoyable or any more rewarding!
So instead of flocking to Europe this year, to enjoy their summer, why not use the opportunity to explore what this great country of ours has to offer? You may be pleasantly surprised to find that the most soul satisfying and memorable places to visit are just under your nose!
