I traveled these guys to the Birdsville races we flew from Brisbane to Birdsville on a charter flight. Graham and Deb were fantastic we always felt comfortable, safe and welcome from start to finish.. The accomodation was great and Graham’s local knowledge is second to none, google wouldn’t even come close to what he knows! Deb and Graham provide a 5 star friendly and professional service and will defiantly travel with them again. Highly recommended!! Thanks guys! Lee & Michael

Thanks Lee & Michael - we really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts about our air package to the Birdsville Races. I think you'd agree, flying is the way to go and it was great to see you both get in the spirit of the fabulous fun races. Perhaps next time we see you will be for the Big Red Bash - our air package from Brisbane includes tent city accommodation (just like the races but out at "Bashville") and tickets to this awesome music festival - the most remote in the world! Thanks again for joining us for the Birdsville Races. Merry Christmas & Happy NY. Cheers Deb & Graham

Fantastic flight. Awsome scenery. Very disappointed as unable to take one decent photo due to being seated beside the propeller for both days.

Thank you Robyn for your review. I often find that the flight itself is more a visual experience and capturing the amazing sights on camera is often impossible even without a propeller next to you. We are disappointed you didn't chat to Graham about this issue as he possibly could have arranged a change in seating for one of the days. We trust everything else about our Lake Eyre package met with your expectations. Kind regards Deb & Graham

Last weekend we travelled with Graham Reid -Travel West, from Brisbane to the Birdsville Pub for lunch, on to Lake Eyre and then overnight at Coober Pedy returning via Marree Man & Charleville Sunday afternoon. What a great experience to have covered so much in such a short period of time. The organisation was superb from check in at the GA terminal in Brisbane to the return. Graham's knowledge of the outback and the details provided on the flight in the very comfortable ATR-32 was informative and entertaining. Mini vans, buses, all meals, check in, everything ran smoothly, no doubt Deb had a hand here. We would recommend this tour to anyone. Brian & Jeanette

Thank you Brian & Jeanette for joining our Lake Eyre package. It certainly is a weekend full of great experiences and Graham's knowledge and his way of sharing it, definitely is a point of difference for our tours. His passion never wavers and he just loves sharing as much as he can in the short time he has you with him. We really appreciate your kind words and hope to maybe see you both again one day on one of our other tours. Kind regards Deb & Graham

An excellent weekend trip to Birdsville, Lake Eyre and Cooberpedy. Every facet of this trip was well planned and executed. Graeme is a wonderful tour guide and has a prodigious knowledge of these areas. A very interesting and informative tour which I can highly recommend.

Thank You for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others. We love what we do and Graham is very passionate about outback Australia and especially the western river systems that provide life to Lake Eyre. We hope to perhaps see you one day on our motel accommodated 4WD tag along tour to experience much more from the ground! Thanks again, Kind regards Deb and Graham

With my husband and another 56 people, we took this wonderful trip last weekend. This is the best tour we have ever taken anywhere in the world! Flying out of Brisbane we landed in Birdsville, had lunch at the famous Birdsville Hotel, had a tour of the town provided by local volunteers before flying on to Lake Eyre where our pilot spent more than an hour turning this way and that so all passengers had a great view. Then we flew on to Port Augusta for dinner and our overnight accommodation, both of which were superb. Next morning we had a tour of Port Augusta before taking off once again to see the Maree Man, then back to Lake Eyre again, and then our pilot followed the course of Cooper Creek and landed us in Charleville for our lunch. Tours were provided there too! We arrived back at Brisbane airport at 5.00pm. The whole trip, we had an on the spot travel talk about where we were and what we were viewing either side of the aircraft, given with clarity, interesting side stories and good out-back humour by Graham who with his partner Deb are the owners and operators of Travel West. I would recommend Travel West unreservedly for anyone who is interested in seeing and learning more about the magic of the outback from a dinky-di country bloke and his mate who really know how to organise a perfect trip. All we needed to take were clothes, toiletries, hats, binoculars and cameras, and everything else was taken care of. And Lake Eyre was truly amazing! Thank you so much, Graham and Deb. And thanks also to the Hevilift aircraft and crew - Randall, Keith, Bob, Margot and Rebecca.

Thank You for your fabulous review and recognition of the excellent crews we have on board our flights. We love what we do and appreciate you taking the time to tell others. You really do see so much in just 2 days and we hope it wets your appetite to perhaps see more from the ground one day. Thank You. Kind regards Deb & Graham
