Multiple Locations

With over 30 year’s ecology and farming experience Boobook guides are hailed as authorities in the natural history of the Carnarvon Ranges and surrounding region. Join them on an adventure of a life time to get a real taste of Outback Queensland.

Leaving from Roma, Queensland (one hour flight from Brisbane) their tours range from one day up to seven day/six nights. They help uncover the industries forming the backbone of their region, while also discovering often unseen Australian wildlife and rare plants in unforgettable spectacular settings.

Choose your tour: visit Origin’s Coal Seam Gas operation, large privately owned working farming / grazing properties. View Aboriginal rock art, amazing rock formations, unique historical sites and inland streams and waterholes.

They are flexible. Tours can be customised to meet the interests and fitness levels of your group. With exclusive access to private and public lands they run special interest tours for wildflower enthusiasts, field naturalists, photographers, hiking groups and others. Have them provide scrumptious outback food or groups can self-cater. Accommodation can range from four star motels to glamping in real beds or bring your own tent.
