G'day mate ! How ya goin' today?

About the Bush by Jingo is a small group tour operation established in 1996 to provide a personalised experience of some of the most spectacular areas of South Australia and Outback Australia.

In April 2003 they took over the successful business of South Australian Scenic Tours which has operated since 1983. We are now able to offer a wider range of itineraries including Kangaroo Island.

In 2005 they acquired the business of Oscars Outback Tours (Now Outback Experience Tours) and they now offer 4WD coach tours to many exciting destinations. www.outbackexperiencetours.com.au/

The operators, Kerrin & Jenny March, had traveled extensively with their family in these areas over a number of years, and when Kerrin resigned from his career in school administration they decided to make a livelihood of sharing their travel experiences.

Kerrin grew up on a farm on northern Yorke Peninsula and as an old saying goes "You can take the boy out of the country, but you can never take the country out of the boy." His passion for and knowledge of the country is related in an entertaining and informative commentary which leaves passengers with a wealth of information, both historical and about current day life in a rural community. Kerrin has been described as "an entertaining raconteur".

Jingo can tell you the current price for wheat or the current price on the favourite in the Beltana Cup, what kind of lizard just ran up your trouser leg and how to get it out again….all important stuff to know in the outback.

"G'day mate ! How ya goin' today?" It is not unusual for a tour to stop off and meet some of the locals; maybe to see sheep shearing in progress, the delivery of grain to the silos, pruning of grapevines or to chat to a farmer droving stock along a back road. Many things that are every day to rural folk are a real novelty to interstate or overseas visitors who may live in a city with a population three or four times that of South Australia.

At About the Bush by Jingo we pride ourselves in providing that little bit extra. We like to find out what our customers want to see and, if possible, arrange for a bit of extra time to visit a particular town or area. Our itineraries are flexible and can be changed to meet particular requests. We also visit some spectacular places on private property which are not accessible to the public.

We have regular tours to the Flinders and Gammon Ranges, staying at award winning hotels/motels or camping under the stars, we eat at interesting restaurants and enjoy gourmet style picnic lunches in the bush. Kerrin is an accomplished bush cook and on camping trips you will be continually surprised at the variety of meals prepared over the camp fire. Real billy tea is a treat that many passengers remember, along with the walks in the bush watching the birdlife, or sitting on the rocks in a gorge waiting for a glimpse of a Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby.

If you want to experience the countryside through the eyes and heart of a real country bloke then pack your sense of adventure and travel About the Bush by Jingo.
