We at Aussie Redback Tours are passionate about sharing our knowledge with you. We take pride in not only what we know about our country, but also our professional presentation, our eco-friendly values, and the fact that we simply enjoy what we do. Our tours are “value-for-money”, and include motel accommodation, national park fees, most meals, boat cruises, wine tasting, current events and festivals to name a few…
We carefully plan tours for you, most of our accommodation is 3* or better. Whether you are a couple, a single traveller or a group, we provide options for everyone. We also provide most meals on tour and will cater for all dietary requirements.
We love getting to know our passengers, and at the end of each day we enjoy sharing stories and having a laugh with everyone on tour!
Sharon Kersting – Owner Operator / Tour Co-ordinator
“I am a true blue West Australian with red dirt in my veins. I love showing off my country, and I am passionate about Australia’s history and culture. I have 20 years experience in coach travel all over Australia. I have worked for one of WA’s oldest tour companies for over 9 year as a driver, tour coordinator and host, and loved every minute of it.
I am a licensed and accredited tour operator, with extensive knowledge of Australia, and I take pride in my country. I can drive the largest of road coaches and 4×4 tour vehicles (with a trailer, if you don’t mind!), and I also have vast experience in the mechanical side of things. If I can fix it, I will!
I want to show off this country because I believe we have the best country in the world”!
Renata Wright – Office Manager
“I have worked in the travel field on and off since 1980 – as a travel consultant in Kalgoorlie for 10 years, for Skywest in Leinster for 3 years, and for Ansett in Perth for 2 years, and I am now the Office Manager for this emerging company.
I am also an accomplished award-winning watercolour artist, and enjoy painting the Australian landscape. This passion led to the development of the art-specific tours with Aussie Redback Tours.
My love of art, travel, customer service, and office operations makes a perfect combination for my role with Aussie Redback Tours. I am more than likely the person you’ll speak to when you call with your travel inquiries”.
