Great Southern Outback Tours and Accommodation

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Great Southern Outback Tours and Accommodation are a privately owned, bespoke outback touring company located in the beautiful Kalgan River Valley.

They offer off-the-beaten-track four wheel adventures, discovering the glorious rural landscapes of Western Australia’s South East, from the rugged coastal cliffs of the Southern Ocean to the pioneering Goldfields and all points in-between. They like to think that they do things a little differently.

It’s extraordinary country out in the outback, with wide open spaces and clear nights offering an outstanding view of the stars. Tours have been created that combine a little bit of everything, from meeting local farmers and seeing amazing wildlife to contemplating both colonial and Aboriginal history and culture.

None of the well-trod tourist trail for you! There are a variety of tours available and tours go off-road and into the heart of rural communities, as that’s where the real stories are found.
