What our past guests have to say about their time with Tony from Rockhampton Tours

Hi Tony,

Thought that I’d let you know how much we enjoyed our tripping around the countryside with you. Arnhem Land gave us a real insight into indigenous culture, and the ability to engage with the population was made more special because of the relationship you had with the locals. When the chance came up to do the Canning stock with you we jumped at it because of the great experience you showed us in Arnhem Land. You did not disappoint. Your knowledge of the local history, flora and fauna, made this a truly memorable month.
In both of these trips you showed calm but firm leadership, an understanding of how to give advice which led to participants maximising their enjoyment and abilities – both personal and with their vehicle. Mechanical issues were dealt with promptly, so that small things did not become major.
When we get up to Rockhampton we will be looking to travel with you again.

All the best
John and Deb

I have completed a number of guided 4WD trips with Tony Davys both with his previous employer Great Divide Tours and more recently with his new business Rockhampton Tours. These have included a 7 day Victorian High Country Tag-along Tour, a 4 week Canning Stock Route Tag-along tour and a 7 day Queensland Coastal Private Fishing, Camping and 4WDriving Tour.

Each trip was meticulously planned, organised and led by Tony. His knowledge of the area and the terrain, his choice of routes and camping spots and his support and enthusiasm were second to none. He even organised a party and baked me a cake to celebrate my 60th birthday in the middle of the CanningStock Route.

My wife Barb joined me on the most recent trip and knowing Barb is a keen fishing
enthusiast Tony organised a local fishing guide, Nathan Johnston from Rise Guidance, to accompany us on the trip. Barb was thrilled to land some beautiful Barramundi, Saratoga and Coral Trout.

Remember lads “ a happy wife equals a happy life”.

My wife, brother and sister in-law and I have just returned from the Victorian High country and I needed to email you to express our thoughts of our amazing week.

Our host, guide, comedian, wildlife educator, teacher, mentor and now I hope friend Tony was and is nothing short of just amazing. Tony from the first time we all met him at the briefing put everyone at ease and guided us through what the next 7 days would have in store.

Throughout our adventure, Tony led with professionalism and confidence. The mastery of his craft is a credit to him, at every turn he knew where we were heading and provided the information pertinent to the specific location.

The sights and locations we visited will stay with us forever as will the challenges we all worked through as a team. I thought I was a very experienced 4wd driver, however, I certainly learnt a lot.

Please pass our heartfelt thanks to Tony

Warm regards,

Andrew McAlpine
