One unexperienced camper and one experienced on an outback tour of 3 days! We started in Ayers Rock, great. First day a nice start for Uluru. Dave, our guide, gave us a good start at the visitor center. Not saying what we must do, but giving options and gave us the advice to make a good choice in what was... More

I'm an Aussie and have been hosting my friend from London. I wanted her to experience a true 'Australian Outback' camping experience, plus I've always wanted to visit Ayers Rock, so browsed tours online and found Wayoutback. They were incredible helpful via phone and email correspondence and I felt it was the right company for us- even though we would... More

This is a review of the 4 night, 5 day camping 'tour' - an experience I find myself looking back on with satisfaction and a good dollop of fondness. Certainly the Outback this time round dealt up its fair share of surprises given the large amounts of rainfall since the beginning of the year ; the green 'lushness' was so... More

I researched into this tour before I booked . I was very apprehensive at the beginning as I had never camped before (we booked permanent tents) and didn't know what to really expect . I sent numerous emails to wayoutback asking questions to reassure me. They always were very helpful and responded quickly. I went on the tour with my... More

We went on the 5 day/4 night Kangaroo Dreaming Tour, starting 10 Jan 2017. Our guide, Sarah, a delightful and energetic young lady, shared her considerable knowledge of and passion for the Outback and the Aboriginal culture. We managed to wander into the wettest summer ever in the Outback. Expecting to see brown brush and red dirt, we got instead... More

We saw some interesting sights on the trip, but overall the quality of the experience was severely hampered by under-staffing, inadequately trained staff, poor decision making in response to challenging logistic circumstances. Our guide was very friendly and enthusiastic, but had insufficient experience - she was sent out alone to drive and cook and manage 14 participants by herself after... More

Great day! A great way to experience the nature of the Top End in an easy day trip from Darwin. Joey was a great tour guide and we enjoyed sight seeing, eating, walking and swimming in the rain. So good to see the Top End in the wet season!

I booked this with a Belgian travel agency. The lady said, if you want to see Uluru, go camping with Wayoutback. I was like WHAT!? Me? Camping? I'm so happy I booked the 5 day tour.
