The Gourmet Camp oven Experience & Durack Wilderness Safari tour run by Josh are fantastic. He is a wealth of information, terrific host, great cook & an entertainer. What an enterprising young man. I would highly recommend going on these tours.

Kiwi Josh really knows how to engage and make you feel very welcome! It was an informative tour and I especially liked Roy's Retreat, which is run by a Swiss lady. I really enjoyed the morning and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Josh's tour was excellent, full of fascinating information about the area, including geology, flora, fauna and bush tucker. Roy's Retreat was an absolute delight to visit, and morning tea was delicious.
