Lovely, relaxed trip... lots to do, very interactive and interesting! Spent lots of time with our shepherd/farmer (not sure what he is called) and he even sat with us for lunch...and was open to answering lots of our questions. Lots of good, local, Aussie food too.
The weather was great. Tried whip cracking and boomerang throwing. The tour bus driver was terrific and competent. At the sheep station they gave a demonstration of the dogs working - totally fascinating and amazing. The demo of sheep sheering was also very informative and interesting. The BBQ food was delicious as was the billy tea and bread. It was a terrific day. It was also good to see the office personnel on the trip to learn about it. Totally worth it.
Excellent tour which ran with only six people.
Kudos to Viatour/ATT for not cancelling it.
Visiting an Australian outback sheep farm was fascinating. This is the only company that does this tour. Gives excellent background on sheep farming, Seeing the sheep shearing was very interesting. Got to throw boomerangs and tried billy can tea and damper baked over the swagman's fire.
Excellent steak bbq for lunch. Highly recommend this tour - book through Viatours - it is not well publicized on the usual tour company websites. Get out of Sydney for the day and experience the really Aussie outback.
this tour gives you a good feel for the outback billy tea and damper is not to be missed. T he staff were all excellent and it was a very rewarding experience
Loved our tour. Tobruk was so fun and interesting. Very glad we went.
wonderful trip. great meal It was a t-bone steak with everything. The dogs were great and the stockman knew what he was doing.
Loved this tour, booked it as I had a free day...but I have to say, it was one of my favourite tours! The staff here are great...I definately recommend it :0)
Great tour, good example of Sheep farming, extremely educational and enjoyable.
This trip to Tobruk Australian Outback was a wonderful experience and well worth what we paid for it. Very much enjoyed by all.
I would give this a 5 rating
This tour was great for anyone wanting to outback experience. You are shown how to throw the boomerang and crack the whip. They make their own damper and you can to see when they get it off the fire. Meal was good; I just wished the would have served some australian sausages.
Enjoyed this. Info really comprehensive - on why and how the billy tea came about (linked to vast area covered by sheepfarming, geographical and historical reasons). Having billy tea and bread freshly made over campfire! Sheep herding and shearing done with much info,unlike tours done before. Relaxing and fun
This was a fun trip, but I wish there had been fewer people. More importantly, the food definitely needs improveent. Dry bread made from flour and water is not appreciated. Okay, have some of it available to show what food is like over an open fire, but they should also have something more palatable for guests to enjoy. The lunch was below par. The "salad" was a joke and the only vegetable was a small potato. Pretty skimpy meal for what we paid.
Fun day! The drive from Sydney took about 2 hours due to AM traffic and detours. Driver was personable and friendly, he provided lots of commentary on ride to Tobruk to keep us engaged during trip.
Staff at Tobruk we welcoming and enthusiastic. Activities were fun and as promised in trip info, especially, seeing the dogs 'work' the sheep was fun!. On way home stopped off at Featherdale Wildlife Park. A nice small venue to view some Australian wildlife up close, including a photo-opp with a Koala with your own camera at no extra charge.
Although a bit far from Sydney, the journey was not boring thanks to driver's comments. Activities on the place are also exciting, as you can do things that you don't have the opportunity to do, like making noise with a "fouet" to gather sheeps, seing sheep dogs in action, seeing sheep wool cutting, etc. The comments of the animator were also interesting to learn about these things. One of the good moments was the dampers and billy tea close to the outside fireplace!. More disappointing was the BBQ, as it was inside and limited to a piece of meat (nevertheless extremely good and well cooked) and salad...
We keep a good feeling of this typical trip and came back with a piece of australian wool!
