    A great holiday package !!! I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience the true Queensland Outback. There were so many highlights from fossicking for sapphires, panning for gold, riding the stagecoach etc, and absorbing the history of the outback. Learn about the pioneers, the miners, farmers and the stockmen. Throw in the stories of Cobb@Co, Qantas and the Dinosaurs, and you have some of the tour’s highlights. Add to this the tour guide, with his stories, his jokes and attention to the needs and comfort of the tour group. If you like a change of scene, some history, a lot of laughs, some good fun and awesome sunsets, then this tour is made for you.
