Meet your instructors
With our 3 children we travelled Australia extensively over the past 30 years and conducted 24 different Tag-along tours throughout the outback each year. We have taken an interest in nature, geology and the outback, made it a hobby and then it developed into a thriving business. Originally a weekend business and running the tours on School holidays, it got to the stage where we were so busy we ran out of holidays and had to give up “the day job”. People still ask today, “Do you have a real Job?” We feel very lucky that we have a great love for what we do. We love nothing better than at the end of the day to see the confidence level of a driver skyrocket and they have “caught” our enthusiasm for venturing out into our beautiful country.
The 3 “Children” are all grown up now and you may find them leading you on tours or guiding you on obstacles on a course. Many people will have contact with Lynette our eldest, who manages our office (and her parents!) Lynette, Peter & Carl have their own 4WDs and an outback spirit is in their blood. Peter was 5 DAYS old on his first outback adventure!
