Tom is one of Australia's true legends! This tour takes you to places only Tom can access. His knowledge plus personality alone make this day outstanding! Ample food for smoko, lunch and afternoon tea. (Great fruitcake Vicki). One of the best tours I've ever done!

Tom Lockie is a legend of the Queensland Outback and his full day tour out of Barcaldine is a must see for anyone interested in Australiana and Aboriginal Rock Art (see photos). Tom has been there and done that and his informative tour misses nothing....More

This tour is a beauty. Tom will teach you more about the area in 1 day than you could read about in 1 year. His tour is all day from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm and worth every cent. There are carvings and paintings still...More

Tom Lockie runs this full day tour out of Barcaldine to Aramic and to the hills around that area. What he does not know of the area, it's colourful past residents, it's history, and it's geography is not worth knowing. We were taken to places...More

We found this tour was a great history and geography lesson on the Barcaldine/Aramac/Gracevale area. Tom Lochie has great knowledge of this area where Cobb & Co coaches traversed the land. The access to aboriginal carvings was entirely different to paintings found in other areas....More
