          Great excursion to Age of Dinosaurs
          The Red Dirt our tour guide picked us up from our accommodation and transported us to the venue, about 25 km from Winton. During the drive Brett, our tour guide shared some of his vast know local knowledge. The Age of Dinosaurs tour is amazing and is highly recommended.

          4 day Winton tour
          We loved our time in Winton and highly recommend Red Dirt Tours to get the most out of a visit there. We had most time with tour guide Bec but also with Vicki and Hylton and they were all superb. The tours were well organised friendly relaxed fun and informative. Bec was so knowledgeable and if she couldn’t answer a question on the spot she’d come back with an answer later. 10/10 for passion and dedication.

          Package of tours is a great way to explore the Winton area
          I'd never been to Winton before, and after a few 1000s kms of driving, I was very glad to join a tour. This package was 4 nights' accommodation, with 3 full days of touring that combined some of Red Dirt's individual tours. It was a good balance of actual tours (Age of Dinosaurs, Lark Quarry, Sunset tour etc) plus a confortable amount of free time to wander the town or use the provided vouchers to visit the Waltzing Matilda Centre etc. Our guides were Vicki (proprietor) , Bec and Dana. They were all good drivers (the various vehicles were comfortable too). The other passengers were a lovely group. The guides were engaging, well informed (without being overbearing), cheerful and helpful. Red Dirt has good relationships with venues and landowners. It meant that we had good access to sites that are perhaps not generally available to individuals. Well done, Red Dirt - had a great time!

          Winton Explorer Package
          We did the three day trip which was fantastic. Bec was our tour guide for the first day and a half. She shared her incredible knowledge of the flora, fauna, ancient landscape and geology. I have never had a more informative travel guide in all my travel both within Australia and overseas. She was witty and friendly and also very thoughtful of everyones needs. Our whole group absolutely loved her, we learned heaps. Also the landscape and views were amazing as well as the fascinating ancient history. Everyday was fabulous, we were well fed and well looked after. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

          An excellent tour from Winton
          We took the 3/4 Carisbrooke and Lark Quarry tour from Winton. This was one of the best day tours I have ever taken, so glad I decided to let someone else do the driving! Our driver and tour guide Bec was simply amazing. She may have originally been a Sydneysider but she really knows the area extremely well and the whole tour was very very informative. As a result we learnt a lot about the local fauna and flora and generally the history of Winton. I have already recommended to one friend - who has already booked this tour. Would have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone. Just do it , thank me later

          What an experience! Bec our amazing guide picked us up from the camp ground with a big smile on her face and was so passionate about what she does. We went out to the dinosaur stampede which is a long drive however Bec was so knowledgeable about the local area, she made the trip amazing, spotting lots of local wildlife also! Really tasty morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea! We took our 4 kids aged between 9 and 11 and they had a great time!! Thank you so much! Highly recommended 👌🏻

          Dinosaurs & Sunset Tours
          Both tours were amazing. The dinosaur tour was incredible and very educational and all the people, who have been involved with the museum etc, should be very proud of what they have given to the public to see, wonder at and enjoy. As for the sunset tour, what could be more enjoyable than walking through the Rift's on a Mesa and then watching a sunset with a glass of wine and lovely nibbles.

        I chose this tour as it looked different to other places that I had seen before, and I was not disappointed. My husband and I were picked up from our accommodation by Dana and driven out to "Rangelands" which is a privately owned property about 10 kilometers outside of Winton. We proceeded to drive up onto the top of one of the ridges, passing the luxury tents where you can stay on the property.
        Prior to sunset, we went for a walk down into the rift formations that form from wind and water erosion at the edge of the ridge. Dana supplied information about the local plant and animal life along the walk as well as answering any questions.
        After the walk we went to the sunset side of the ridge, where we settled in to enjoy the scenery along with a glass of wine and a tray of nibbles prepared by Dana. Once the sun had gone down and many photos were taken, we were returned to our accommodation.

        We went on this tour to see an outback sunset, which didn’t disappoint, but what we hadn’t expected was the interesting drive to get to the lookout. We went in the 4 wheel drive bus through Rangelands Station to the jump-ups, formed over millions of years by erosion. The top is the original height of the land. Vicki our guide gave a comprehensive overview of the local geography and walked us through the rifts between the rocks which were formed when the softer sandstone/rock was eroded away. Vicki and Hilton were fantastic Guide and hosts. This tour was a highlight of our trip to Winton. Thanks Vicki.

        Excellent service, Vicki picked us up from our accommodation. Very good commentary along the way. Exploring the rifts is great, lovely views around the jump up and the setting sun highlighting the colours of the boulders contrasting with the brilliant clear blue sky.
        Great nibbles provided by Vicki as we had a few drinks while taking in the changing colours as the sun set and concluded our visit to the jump up with the moon above..

        We think the sunsets in the west over the jump-up are spectacular but they are made even more special enjoyed with a nibble platter and a couple of drinks. What a treat to have the moon on show as well. We are happy to hear you had a great time!

        Having a glass of wine and enjoying delicious nibbles while watching the sunset was great, but the tour offers so much more. Dana, our tour guide, made this tour so enjoyable and informative. We learnt a lot about the geology, flora and fauna, aboriginal history etc of this area, and appreciate Dana sharing her wealth of knowledge.

        A great photographic experience for everyone. Fantastic views everywhere you look and the sunset was one of the best I have seen anywhere. There was drinks and nibbles as well and it was truly a great highlight of the Winton area. Staff were great and very helpful. Friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience just that bit better with all their knowledge

        Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the local plant life and the history of the place and made it a really interesting and enjoyable trip.
        We saw emus and wallaroos on our drive up to the rifts and a few cute bats inside the rifts themselves.
        The rock formations really are amazing and our guide gave us plenty of opportunities to take pics so I got lots of great photos.

        What a special treat. My husband and I were fortunate enough to be the only guests on this tour, still really early in the season. The guides were very knowledgeable. The scenery is spectacular. Walking amongst the eroding Rifts gives you a sense of the power and the resilience of nature. Then, the sunset was surreal. The quiet was palpable. You felt at one with the earth. A closeness to God as you watch the beauty of the sky change colour.
