What to expect
Travel to Yowah the only place in the world you can find a type of opal called a Yowah Nut. Tour Yowah with a local including the Bluff lovers leap. Fossick for your very own Yowah Nut a special type of opal encased in an ironstone. Travel back 100 million years in time in the Artesian Time Tunnel and learn all about the Artesian Basin and how it opened up this area to settlers. Immerse yourself with larger-than-life characters and enjoy a beer and yarn with the locals and some traditional Aussie tucker at the Cunnamulla Bowling Club. We will head for the magnificent Warrego River to embark on a kayak journey along the windy banks lined with a canopy of ancient river gums, wildlife and birdlife. Lunch will be at a secluded spot along the way under a shady Coolabah tree that the late Banjo Patterson made famous in his poetry. Enjoy the adrenalin rush of sand boarding and sledding down the massive natural sand dunes. Sit around the campfire and take the unique opportunity to master the ancient Aboriginal art of playing the didgeridoo, watch the star filled skies or have a sing along. Stroll along the banks of the Warrego River on the “Wallaby Walk” so keep your eyes open and be quiet so you can spot one of these cute little fellas often seen at the water’s edge. Act out your “Indiana Jones” fantasy and navigate your way across the 70m swinging footbridge, never before open to the public. Arriving at the homestead, have morning tea and relish in the friendly country hospitality offered by station owners Chris and Mike Webster. See an abundance of Australian bird and wildlife including large numbers of kangaroos and emu’s all in its natural environment. You will learn to make “Billy Tea” and “Damper” from a true blue Aussie. Take a historical town tour and visit local industry including state of the art organic farming. Late afternoon sit back relax and enjoy a sunset river cruise on the Warrego River with our local tour guide. You will experience an explosion of nature as you cruise the tranquil waters soaking up the outback ambience. Feel a part of history unfolding as you explore the historic cemetery and uncover tales of characters and Cunnamulla legends. Have your final afternoon enjoying the characters as you complete an Aussie pub crawl at all the local’s watering holes followed by a farewell dinner. All accommodation is camping in a swag under the starry outback sky.

Great tour with a third generation local.
We did the town and country tour. The bus was in for repairs and we were treated to a drive in the operators car.
