Detour Adventures has been fantastic and
now is the right time to step aside from
professional tourism. It’s time…
Starting Detour Adventures was a dream.
I had a dream to create a professional 4WD
tour business in Bathurst, and in doing
so, we set a new benchmark for 4WD adventures.
I’ve driven 4WD’s my whole
life and Detour Adventures helped me share
my love of the bush with Guests.
We created new and interesting adventures
that brought people to Bathurst.
We’ve helped grow tourism in Bathurst
and we’ve enjoyed nine fantastic years
Guests have come from all over the world
for our adventures and we’ve made
friendships with many of our Guests along
But it’s not just the Guests who have
been great to us. It’s local tourism
operators, the radio and TV stations that
have supported us too. Thanks everyone.
It’s also the local Wiradyuri Elders
who so kindly embraced me as a friend. Me,
the white fella who had an idea to help
build Aboriginal Cultural awareness on my
4WD tours. Yindyamarra fellas.
Not many will know, but before Detour Adventures,
I worked for more than 25 years in an office.
It’s only when I left the cage and
shackles of office life to start Detour
Adventures did work really become a pleasure,
not a chore. I love the outdoors and seeing
We’ve won numerous awards, we’ve
appeared on TV shows, celebrities have adventured
with us and we’ve been blessed with
incredibly kind TripAdvisor reviews. So
Thanks to my loving and supportive family
who gave endless encouragement throughout
I feel a huge sense of achievement in choosing
to retire now after our busiest year.
Thank you everyone.
