“We are delighted to release this new tour exclusively tailored for our Australian customers”, Luxury Outback Tours Director Sylvia Mills explains.

“Whilst times have been tough during tourism industry shutdowns and the loss of our customer markets due to travel restrictions here in WA, we have worked incredibly hard to expand our offerings in partnership with a range of high quality attractions, hospitality, and accommodation operators across the State.

“We are all supporting each other in this tourism and business recovery period which is very encouraging.”

Accommodation is provided in a luxury Farmer’s Home in Northam and a two-night resort stay at Rydges Kalgoorlie . Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are provided.

The next available tour date for the Kalgoorlie Golden Trail is March 12 2021. Other dates are available upon enquiry. Call Sylvia on 0429 385 642, or email.
