Another tour has been started by two ladies. It looks fabulous Yambangku Stratford Cultural Adventures. Can book through Lounging Emu and Facebook. Looks awesome but we only found it the day before we were leaving.

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!

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

Thanks Tom for a great day out. Without you and your extensive knowledge of the history of the region, and your sole access to the places we went, the day wouldn't have been so enjoyable. Thanks also to your wife for providing the food for...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
