WA's coral coast spans a vast area just north of Perth. More than 1100 kms of white beaches, outback desert and laid-back coastal towns greet you on this beautiful stretch of our country. We have put a tour together for you to enjoy these very special spots, all done at a leisurely pace, in air-conditioned comfort, and staying in motel accommodation. Our tour is almost full already but there are still seats available so pick up the phone and give us a call. The tour runs for 12 days, starting with a flight from Perth to Broome, and then making our way down the coast. Tour highlights of the glorious coral coast include sunset fish and chips dinner on Cable Beach in Broome; a visit to 80 Mile Beach - famous for its long stretch of white sandy shores (and we stay at nearby Pardoo Station - a little oasis in the desert); a short trip inland to Karijini National Park to visit the picturesque Dale's Gorge, Fortescue Falls, Circular Pool, and Fern Pool (if it's warm enough you may even like to try a dip in this pool); and a chance to meet the world-famous Monkey Mia dolphins at Monkey Mia. A visit to the Coral Coast wouldn't be the same without seeing the dolphins! A tour of WA's coral coast must also include a visit to Kalbarri and we certainly do that on this tour too. At Kalbarri we visit Nature's Window, the Loop, Z-Bend Gorge and Red Bluff Lookout. We have also included, at no extra cost, three cruises - one on the Ningaloo Reef on a glass-bottom boat, one at Monkey Mia on the bay, and a beautiful sunset cruise at Kalbarri on the Murchison River. You will certainly have plenty of opportunities to see our

The Kimberley is famous for its boab trees, rugged mountain ranges, and long winding rivers. To many though, the Kimberley seems a beautiful yet unreachable Australian destination. The combination of travelling distance, cost, and rugged unknown can make it a little bit daunting, especially if you are on a budget or travelling on your own. We at Aussie Redback Tours have put together a very affordable tour that takes you to the places you see in the brochures, not only see its famous boabs, but also visiting the stunning Lake Argyle (helicopter flight over the lake included in your fare), famous El Questro Station, magnificent Emma Gorge, Tunnel Creek and Windjana Gorge, and the picturesque Cockburn Ranges. Our "Kimberley Dreaming" tour also includes a cruise on the enormous Ord River where you will learn all about its fascinating history, size, and irrigation system. We also take you to the historical Durack Homestead, the unique Zebra Rock Gallery, and Australia's own China Wall! If you wish, and at your own expense, you can take an optional flight over the beautiful Bungle Bungles. Our 9 day tour departs 28 June 2018, is fully accommodated (no camping) and includes flights from Perth to Kununurra, and Broome to Perth, daily breakfasts, most dinners and some lunches, a professional team to join you, and comfortable vehicle to travel in. Price starts at $3,640 per person, twin share. Contact Aussie Redback Tours on 1300 662 026 or firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a full itinerary and to reserve your seat.

Starting in Western Australia and finishing in the Northern Territory, the Great Central Road is a picturesque wonder of scenery and wildlife. It takes in some of Australia’s iconic amazing outback such as the Great Simpson Desert, Petermann Ranges, Giles Weather Station, Lasseter’s Cave, Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and Uluru (Ayers Rock). There has been talk for years now about bituminizing this road. It is one of the last outback frontiers tracks in Australia and it would be a crying shame if this happens, as every truckie in the country would use it. This year we will be running a 13-day tour of this area. The tour also visits Kings Canyon, Alice Springs, (with its diverse landscapes and colours of the McDonnell Ranges), the multicultural town of Coober Pedy, (one of the largest towns in SA and home to 92% of the worlds opals), Woomera (famous for its history as a rocket test range), and Port Augusta on the Spencer’s Gulf. We cover three states in this tour at a leisurely pace, so you have time to take it all in and marvel at what a wonderful country we live in and wonder how our pioneering ancestors survived. We enjoy two nights at Uluru, two nights at Alice Springs and two nights in Coober Pedy, so we can really enjoy ourselves without rushing. This is a fully accommodated 13-day tour (no camping), which includes most meals, entries and attractions, and a return flight to Perth. The experience of travelling this road will stay with you forever and leave you longing for more of our stunning outback. The tour leaves on 02 April 2018.

We at Aussie Redback Tours really do love bringing people together. We take pride in giving our passengers relaxing, fun filled, exciting tours, bringing people together from all over the country to make new friendships and wonderful memories. We love getting to know our passengers and we have made some lovely friendships over the last three years, with passengers who continue to support us with their repeat business. All walks of life enjoy our tours, even those who have ongoing aliments; some with underlying medical conditions, and some with grief from losing a loved one. One of our passengers, Barbara (pictured with a shandy on our recent Christmas Lunch Mystery Tour) has undergone countless medical procedures, but that doesn’t stop her. She shows a determination to get on with life while she can. Barbara has told us that “It hasn’t been the best year for my health, but it ended up Ok. I have osteo-arthritis in my knees and need a knee replacement, but that’s on hold now as I have just finished six months of chemo for Waldestrom - a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Two weeks after treatment I took off to Tasmania with Aussie Redback Tours, which helped me get over it. Even my pacemaker behaved itself this year! I find mixing with the other lovely passengers, whether it be on day tours or extended tours, certainly is the best medicine out! lol, but I’m sure there are people out there that have been through a lot more than me”. This is just one example of one of our passengers who lives life to the fullest while she can, and it certainly has opened our eyes to how we should all tackle life. Our advice is to get out there, get on with it and enjoy your twilight

We're back from our art trip around Albert Namatjira Country, and what a fantastic time it was. Artists came from all over Australia to join together in a week of painting, photographing, learning, laughing, and sharing art stories. Our tutor was Ross Paterson who is one of the nicest artists you could meet. He was generous in sharing his painting knowledge, and spent a lot of time demonstrating and sharing his ideas with us all. We titled the tour "Namatjira Country" because the places we visited and painted were locations that famous Aboriginal artist Albert Namatjira once painted and it was quite moving to be able to be possible standing in the same spots that he may have stood. The landscape around Alice Springs is unlike any other landscape around Australia. It's hard to describe. The distant hills are a million shades of purple and blue, yet the foreground is such a contrast with it's strong red earth providing another contrast to the white trunks of the gum trees. The gorges with their still reflections could easily look the same upside down as right side up because everything is so still and quite magical. Everywhere the artists looked, there was something to paint and everyone had a great time Ross enjoyed the tour himself and is keen to come to WA next year for an art trip of the Pilbara. Stay tuned for more information on that very soon. In the meantime, here are some pictures of the trip. You'll see that Namatjira Country is truly worthy of an art tour. So much so that we'll be running it again next year, and we are pleased to write that Leonie Norton will accompany us as the tutor in 2017.

The Gibb River Bungle Bungles Tour in the Kimberley is done and dusted for this year, and may I say "what a fantastic tour"! Great people, beautiful scenery and magic weather. There were lots of laughs, stories, bumps and fun, and I enjoyed the passengers' company very much. It was a great success and we can't wait for next year's tour. Our all-terrain bus, Albert Namatjira never missed a beat on the Gibb River tour, he was comfortable, reliable, and not even one flat tyre to be had. During the tour we saw some amazing scenery including Bell's Gorge with its beautiful waterfalls and stunning swimming holes - a welcoming sight after a short walk to the falls. And speaking of swimming, we all enjoyed an hour or two at Drysdale River up the Kalumburu road, where we swam, relaxed, and soaked up the atmosphere of the Kimberley with nibbles and drinks. On our way to Home Valley we called in to Ellenbrae Station where we enjoyed home made scones, cream and hot coffee, and all-round good outback hospitality. Home Valley Station was another stop that provided amazing accommodation and we saw the most brilliant sunset I've seen in 20 years. Simply stunning! These were just a sample of what we experienced - there are just too many more wonderful sights to mention. You must come with us on next year's Gibb River tour to see for yourself. Now we are concentrating on the wildflower season and we have some wonderful tours coming up - 1 day tours, 4 day tours, and a magical 7 day Mt Augustus Kennedy Range tour (which combined with wildflower season, will prove to be a perfect all round trip). These tours are already starting to fill up as people are realising that the season
