Comments from some of our passengers.
"Sally provided an excellent tour customized for our college Crop Team from Kansas State University USA. Tea and picnic lunch were good opportunities for her to explain Australian traditions, culture and history."
"This tour went very smoothly and Sally was very flexible with what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go. She is knowledgable about Australian history and culture and is easy to follow."
"Great tour for small groups! Sally gave great recommendations and personalized our tour! She made sure we had plenty of time and it was "our" day! Great to see the sights!"
Kevin, Chelsea, Scott, Susan, Kim, Lyndsay and Levi, USA - Sept 2012
"From the moment I started emailing with you I knew we were going to experience something special. You provided us with a 4 day magical trip to the farm and bush country that was an experience of a lifetime.
"From the morning welcome where you showed us your endless supply of lollies to the first koalas that we met at the sanctuary to our morning tea, we knew we had found the perfect companion.
"All the explanations, tutoring in Australian English, grouse tucker, wild animals, friendly people and stories you shared enabled us to feel a part of Oz - we were True Blue for a few days. Thank you.
"Warm regards to our friends at the farm."
Julia and Leora, USA - Dec 2011
"WHAT a wonderful day!!! We have had such an awesome time it's ridiculous."
"Thank you so much for a wonderful day with such a high maintentance crowd! Two 14-month olds and an 82 year old in a wheel chair. Tough crowd and you were never flustered by our demands. I would recommend hanging with you any day Sally."
"Thanks again. Look forward to hanging with you again."
Val, USA (shown with Memory, Dorothy, Eric and babies Niki & Dani) - Feb 2013
"Thank you so much Sally for everything. Over four days we've covered a great deal of territory and experienced a great deal of Aussie life.
"We are particularly grateful for your suggestion of going to Noel's farm. Since all of us either come from farm backgrounds or make our livings from agriculture - it was appreciated.
"You personalized our experience and were very accommodating. You kept us to a schedule yet were very flexible when we required additional time at a venue.
"We are truely grateful for your abundant knowledge of the wildlife, birds, plants and history.
"We wish you well and good fortune on your bush adventures"
Shelley, Marilyn, Wes & Keith, Canada - Oct 2011
"Thank you for a superb possibility to see some of the real Australian bush. We wouldn't have managed without you!! Some of the best memories include the bright stars shining while Bill played his guitar, horseback riding in the wild fields of the Blue Mountains and getting to see wild kangaroos, koalas and wambats.
"The tour and all its components were always 100% related to its mission; to give us the optimal bush experience. It was, in a positive way, the opposite to a tour with a big travel company, both personal and very real. It all gave great value to our Australian experience
"We would recommend this 4-day trip to anyone who wants to explore the Australian bush!"
Synne and Kyrre, Norway - Nov 2011
"What a great 4 day trip into part of the real Australia! Thank you Sally for providing a look at what this amazing country is made of.
"I loved the company, the characters and the scenery, the history and the food!
"The night around the campfire was my favourite bit and when we went to bed under the stars - how magical to lay and watch shooting stars and be amazed by the plenitude of sparkles up there...
"I will be telling all my friends"
Margôt, Australia - 2007
"The highlight of the trip for me was the night sitting around the campfire with the Norris Family. The brilliant stars overhead and the poems and songs and yarns flowing freely brought back childhood memories.
"Although I've driven through the same areas many times in the past, this tour highlighted features of the bush I'd not really taken any notice of before.
"I had fantastic time."
John, Australia - 2007
"I loved the whole trip. Petting the Koalas and Kangaroos was really fun. The Gold mine was really cool to see the tools they used and what went on in that time period.
"All the look-outs in the Blue Mountains were really pretty. It was really fun the climb in the cave and also to walk down the dried up old river they panned gold in.
"The farm was really nice. It was really cool to see the sheep sheared, the horses ploughing, the wagon/buggy rides, feeding the horses, sleeping in tents, the songs sung by Bill and the poems by Laurie and Peanuts.
"And thank you for the really good food. Thank you Ms Sally for the trip."
Rowan, USA (12 years old), on behalf of her family, Allegra and Dirk, Taegan (8) & Layke (6) - Dec 2009
"Thank you Sally and friends for a lovely time - getting behind the scenes of Australia's tourist facade. That's exactly what I wanted and I got it with my own personal tour guide who introduced us to her country, her memories, her family and her friends.
"I envy all the Norris's, past and present who live at Inglevale on the farm. I have never felt so warm and welcomed to share in their wonderful scenic farm.
"Loved the pot roast and kangaroo kebabs. Wilf's ploughing reminded me of my father, who ploughed the field in a similar fashion (in Scotland). Mary with the smiling face, Bill the singer, Laurie who made me laugh, the boys and the dogs, all added to the atmosphere on the farm.
"It was a gorgeous memory of Australia, which I'm sure will never leave me. Thank you for making my holiday more than the usual three weeks off work in the sun."
Anne, Scotland - Oct 2008
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Mudgee/Bathurst/Eugowra trip with you this year. The trip was well thought out and packed with interesting features. You managed to show a wide range of natural attractions and "real" Australian out-back life in the central west of New South Wales in just three days.
"I especially enjoyed my time at Hill End and the farm at Eugowra was an amazing experience. The informative commentary and comfortable van made the travelling time go quickly and you managed to stop often enough to keep everyone happy. The tasty healthy food was a welcome surprise too. I have no hesitation in recommending your trip to those wanting to see some of vast rural Australia and go beyond the cities and beaches."
Phillip, Australia - 2007
"The Farmstay was definitely the best part. I had never imagined myself around a campfire with people so friendly and warm. I was amazed that they could live without electricity and run a farm the way they did.
"I liked the way we just changed plans in the Blue Mountains to see some of the areas that we haven't already visited.
"It's been a great experience."
Katrine, Denmark - Aug 2008
"A very enjoyable four-day tour!
"We had a wonderful trip while enjoying the beautiful scenery. Our accommodation was comfortable and clean and quite varied.
"The second day was especially good with Mary and Bill who opened their farm for us and were very welcoming.
"Thanks Sally for making this a memorable tour and for keeping our options open and making sure that the bad weather didn't stop us from doing any activities"
Natalie and Sophie, Dubai - July 2011
"Great trip! This is a true adventure right from the start. From seeing koalas and kangas to relaxing in a pub.
"I really enjoyed Bill's songs and Laurie's yarns. Staying at the farm made me feel like one of their old friends. Everyone was so friendly and showed me what the Bush was really all about. Sitting under the stars was beautiful as well.
"The trip is jam packed full of adventure sure to please anyone!"
Laura, USA - Feb 2008
"Thank you for letting us experience the heart and soul of both the people and places of NSW.
"The farmstay made the trip for us and the kids. For one night we truly felt like part of your extended family in the bush. That is what sets your tour apart."
Tony and Family, USA - Jan 2009
"The trip was a wonderful experience for me. I especially enjoyed staying at the Norris' property at Eugowra - it was fun to experience what it is like on an Aussie farm and then sitting around a campfire in the evening under the brilliant southern stars. Great food and company. Thanks Sally."
Christine, New Zealand - 2007
"This trip could not have been better. As a first introduction to Australia, NSW, the Blue Mountains and the bush it was superb.
"The opportunity to be a guest on a working sheep ranch is not to be missed. Bill and Mary & the rest of the extended family were more than just entertainment - I'll always remember the experience
George, USA - Dec 2010
"Sally - I'm so glad we took this tour. We saw so many things we could not have otherwise seen. The scenery was gorgeous - especially the rocky hills west of the Blue Mountains.
"It was fun seeing the small towns and meeting people at the farmstay. Bill and Mary were wonderful hosts. The songs, stories & poems made it a magical experience.
"We saw so much, and such a variety yet the pace was relaxing"
Jaimie, USA - Dec 2010
"Gracias Sally, ha sido un viaje precioso y todo lo que comenta Laura ha sido asi. Sally eres una estupenda anfitriona, una gran cicerone. My English is terrible, but I'm felt like in my house. Thanks. Come diriamos en mi idioma "amenazamos con volver"."
"Thank you Sally it has been a wonderful trip and everything that Laura says is so. Sally is a wonderful hostess, a great guide. I felt right at home. Thanks. As we say in my language "we threaten to return."
Isabel, Spain - Feb 2008
"The Farmstay was the Best experience, it gave an insight into the people living on the farms of Australia.
"Meeting real Australians that work the land was an experience I probably would not have had had I not done this trip"
Martin, Denmark - Aug 2008
"I had a wonderful time on our Aussie Farmstay and Bush Adventure trip. It gave me a chance to experience a part of the Australian bush not seen on the more usual tourist routes.
"Historical goldrush towns, real working farms, and local characters. Our guide was friendly and informative and went out of her way to ensure we all got the most out of the tour. Highly recommended."
Frank, Australia - 2007
"The Farmstay had wonderful people and environment. A Great time was had by all..

"The farm stay was a very good experience as well. The campfire, stars and a lot of friendly and fun people.
"We saw a lot of the inland Australia I haven't seen while living here."
Morten, Denmark - Aug 2008

Anita and Rob, England (2 day Farmstay and Mountains Tour) - Jul 2010

"You were very kind and helpful. There were lots of fun and exciting things to do on the bush adventure, but the best thing was spending time with you."
Susan, Australia - Dec 2010

"The farmstay was a highlight - we loved the campfire songs and bush poetry.
"I was impressed with your 'add-ons' - the Aussie books and CDs - the maps and tour pamphlets to help us choose. As a parent I also appreciated that all was safe & clean, from the mountain path you pointed us on to the driving of your minibus.
"So thank you for a memorable experience we would never have been able to organize for ourselves!"
Philip & Michelle USA (children Hugo, Leo, Cordelia pictured) - Jul 2010

Lisbeth and Laura, Denmark Dec 2009
"A wonderful tour that I would highly recommend. Even though we had been to the Blue Mountains - you covered areas and offered stops, sights, sounds and information that we missed on our own.
"Where else would I get to pet a kangaroo or koala, learn the names and sounds of the native birds, see an echidna, & sleep out in the bush with a family. You have organized a wonderful tour full of fun, variety, food and much learning.
This was so worth the time and money - I feel I know Australia so much better than I would ever on a bus tour. Very personal attention and info"

Linda, USA - Nov 2012
"This has been the perfect getaway into the bush. There has been a great mix of history (the mine towns), culture (aboriginal dances) and wilderness (caves & bush walks).
"I especially appreciated being off the beaten tourist track for most of the time.
"Please pass my thanks on to Mary and Bill for their wonderful hospitality on the farmstay - that was an evening to remember.
"I really enjoyed your company and knowledge - thank you so much for making my "Aussie Experience" one to remember."
Sally, England - Dec 2012
"What a real adventure in 3 ways:
-an enjoyable intense science course in geography, geology, biology and botany, about facts we are not aware of in Canada
-A taste of rural life that is on the edge of change, but there is the keen desire to keep up the traditional way in a family of 10 that knows real farm work and skills
- A sincere appreciation of indigenous history, with a clarification of incorrect stereotypes and seeding of my personal curiosity to do further research.
"Thank You Sally"
Mike, Canada - Dec 2012
"As we are Icelandic wannabe-farmers we really enjoyed the farmstay, all the hospitality, the demonstrations, food and chat with friendly locals. Looking at the stars, singing by the campfire and of course Hermann the friendly frog!!"
"Stopping regularly to buy beer is important and the drive through liquor store is something!."
"The last day in the Blue Mountains was great, lots of good walks and getting a local guide to explore Aboriginal Art was just perfect."
Anna, Iceland (Anna's children shown) - Feb 3013
"I can sincerely second the remarks above and it was especially nice to meet the families and friends on the farm. Talking and singing with the people brought us closer to Australia and it's spirit as did all the demonstrations with the horses and Wilf's special knowledge."
