Enjoy a safari in the outback

OUTBACK tour specialist Travel West is spreading its wings with new air safaris over Central Australia and the Kimberley.

Personally guided by owners Graham and Debbie Reid, the nine-day, eight-night safaris depart Brisbane to Kununurra, taking in the Birdsville Pub, Lake Eyre, Uluru, the Olgas, Bungle Bungles and more.

Guests will enjoy overnight motel accommodation in Longreach, Birdsville, Coober Pedy, Ayers Rock Resort and Alice Springs, as well as enjoying three nights based at Kununurra in the heart of the Kimberley.

The safaris represent an exciting new era for the Charleville-based Reids, who thrive on sharing their passion for the Australian outback with their guests.

Graham, who was born in Molong, NSW, and raised in Kojonup, WA, has spent years driving cattle trucks out west.

He has also worked as a tour bus driver throughout Europe, and enjoys guiding and providing commentary on each safari.

Dates for the Travel West Central Australia and Kimberley 2012 Air Safaris are 12 - 20 May and 16 - 24 June. Book early to avoid disappointment. Cost is $9870 a person twin-share. To book, phone 1800 654 541 or email info@travelwest.com.au
