To travel through the great Australian Outback is a fantastic experience that we all should enjoy. Longhorn YOUnique Tours knows how to make this experience special for YOU. Using our extensive experience travelling this area our tour combines the iconic sights that Australia is famous for with interesting places people rarely visit.

We travel "off the beaten track" in our luxury 4WD vehicles and see scenery that has to be seen to be believed. You'll marvel at the colours of the outback as the landscape unfolds before you. Along the way we encounter wildlife and birdlife in their natural settings.

Learn of the first Australians and their relationship with the land and its inhabitants and how they've survived for thousands of years.
