)-- Special 200th Birthday Discount on Aussie Outback Tag-Along-Tour
Keen four-wheel-drivers have a one-time-only opportunity to save AUD$200 per person - or $500 per couple - when they join the Global Gypsies escorted and catered tag-along-tour to Western Australia's Kennedy Ranges in July.
To celebrate the birthday of Arthur Edward Kennedy, the Governor for whom the range was named, the Gypsies are offering a special ‘AUD$200 Birthday Discount" to travelers who book on the tour after reading this article.
The Kennedy Range is one of the most remote and least visited 4WD destinations in Western Australia, yet one of the most scenic and inspiring. An eroded plateau situated on the rim of the Gascoyne River catchment about 150 kms east of Carnarvon, the Kennedys boast spectacular gorge scenery and a vast plateau of ancient dunefields. Discovered in 1858, the area still retains a wilderness feeling - camping beneath the stark sandstone cliffs is a must for any outback enthusiast.
The self-drive 4WD expedition begins in Carnarvon on July 1. Over the next 12 days the small group of adventurers will travel in convoy communicating by two-way radio. They will explore the seldom-traveled west side of the range then spend three days at the coastal paradise of Quobba Station before returning to Carnarvon on July 12.
Accommodation will be under canvas, mainly in bush camps and for those clients who don't have their own 4WD vehicles or camping gear, fully-equipped hire vehicles can be arranged.
Tour Leader Jeremy Perks, Global Gypsies Director and former Tour Guide of the Year, says that in addition to revisiting areas they know and love, the gypsies will go looking for another track that they know exists but have never used before.
The group will also travel on sand tracks between Quobba and Gnarloo with plenty of time to fish, swim, snorkel and relax. "It will be a real journey of discovery combining the thrill of early exploration with the creature comforts of today,” he says.
Special features of the tour include delicious catering by Safari Hostess Rebina Criddle (three meals a day plus morning tea), free bush-skills survival presentation, star-gazing evening, 4WD practice, full moon in the bush and a sumptuous, al fresco, candlelit white-linen dinner on the last night.
The tour normally costs AUD$2090 per person ($4180 per couple) including catering, camping fees, park entry fees, comprehensive Pre Departure Kit and the services of a professional Tour Guide and Safari Hostess. With the special ‘Kennedy 200 birthday discount’ the price is just AUD$1890 per person or $3680 per couple (excluding international air fares and hire vehicles). Numbers are strictly limited.
