Overview

I take visitors to experience the outback within the Goldfields on day long tours to local attractions such as lake Ballard to view the Sir Antony sculptures, ghost towns and bush cemeteries, drive part of the Golden Quest Discovery Trail, and get amongst the Great Western woodlands south of Coolgardie. I can also personalise tours for groups to visit outback bush pubs and fine bush dining.

We were treated to a superb tour by Baz--to Menzies and Lake Ballard, with a couple of additional stops on the way back to Kalgoorlie. Baz is very knowledgeable about the region, and is extremely personable. We highly recommend Big Sky Red Earth!

Very interesting tour to Lake Ballard and surrounds. Baz has a lot of knowledge of the area and some of its history. A excellent day out.
