We are passionate about sharing our knowledge with you. We take pride in not only what we know about our country, but also our professional presentation, our eco-friendly values, and the fact that we simply enjoy what we do. Our tours are “value-for-money”, and include motel/cabin/safari tent accommodation, daily breakfasts, most dinners and some lunches. We also include national park fees, river cruises, wine tasting, festivals, and other attractions on a number of our tours.
Our tours are carefully planned, and whether you are single, a couple, or part of a group, we provide options for you. We also consider your dietary requirements and make arrangements to ensure these are included in the tour.
We love getting to know our passengers, and at the end of each day we enjoy sharing stories and having a laugh with everyone on tour!
Sharon Kersting – Owner Operator / Tour Co-Ordinator
“I am a true blue West Australian with red dirt in my veins. I love showing off my country, and I am passionate about Australia’s history and culture. I have 26 years’ experience in coach travel all over Australia. I have worked for one of WA’s oldest tour companies for over 9 years as a driver, tour co-ordinator and host, and loved every minute of it. I am also a licensed and accredited tour operator, with extensive knowledge of Australia and I want to show off this country because I believe we have the best country in the world”!
Renata Wright – Office Assistant / Art Tutor / Tour Host
“I have worked with Sharon at Aussie Redback Tours since the business commenced in 2015. It’s been a pleasure to see the business grow and to interact with passengers on the phone, via emails and in person on various tours. I also enjoy tutoring and assisting on the art tours as art is my passion. Combining art skills, office experience, travel experience and passion for good customer service makes this a perfect job for me.”
Gavan Jacob – Driver / Tour Host
“I joined Aussie Redback Tours in 2016. My past work experience was in IT, airport passenger transport, and heavy vehicle operations. Recently I acquired a taste for outback travelling which led me to this casual role”.
Noelene Kerr – Wildflower Guide
“Nature amazes me in all its forms, however I am especially passionate about Western Australia’s unique wildflowers. Having recently retired after working for over 40 years in agriculture, I now have the time to indulge in my favourite pastimes of gardening, bushwalking, travelling and photography and I am also fortunate enough to live my dream working for Aussie Redback Tours as Wildflower Guide where I can combine all my passions. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for the diversity of the wildflowers in the region known worldwide as the wildflower state with passengers. Whilst it is not necessary to understand the Latin botanical names or do a “belly flop” in the dirt to capture the classic photo, the flower you are looking at will always hold a memory. My motto is to take the time to enjoy nature. Look with your eyes, not just your feet.”
Grace Jones – Roustabout
“Having travelled on tours with Sharon for a number of years as a passenger, I eventually joined Aussie Redback Tours in 2019 as a roustabout doing whatever is required to help keep the tour running well. Whether it’s helping with meals, cleaning the bus, moving luggage, or taking photos for future brochures etc, I enjoy every aspect of travelling with Aussie Redback Tours. The Australian countryside never ceases to amaze me and the joy of sharing the scenery with passengers is a wonderful experience. No matter how many times I visit a place, it’s never the same and that is what gets me excited about travelling each time.”
