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 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.

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.

Started slow, but was good fun. Food was good. The demonstrations varied from just ok to extremely interesting. Yes it is a worthwhile tour if you are in the area for a week or more.

For a city slicker, I found this tour to be one of my favorites. It was a great way to get out of the big city (Sydney) for a day of relaxation and some great tales...as one of the stockmen said...never let the truth get in the way of a great tale. The lunch was a BBQ T-Bone steak with the local fixin's and the propriators served up a good vegetarian meal for those who didn't eat meat. If you are from New Zealand or other sheep herding vistas this is probably not the tour for you. In fact, the gal at our reception desk laughed when I told her where we were going that day. Many folks in Sydney didn't know this outing was even available as it seemed too common place for them...go figure.
