Geology Field Trip - Kalgoorlie

We have employed Cross Country Safaris for geological field excursions for delegates to an international geochemical conference and for a group from various Australian mining companies. Both excursions have been very successful, with no significant delays or problems, despite difficulties imposed by distance and road conditions. This is no doubt the result of careful planning and preparation, credit must go to Terry. Everyone has been most impressed by his care, attention to detail and good humour, not to mention hard work, and his general concern for the welfare of the tour.

Yours sincerely

Excursion for Japanese students to Eastern Goldfields, Western Australia

Amongst the mail here were letters, full of praise for the excursion. A large part of this was due to the professional and very friendly service offered by Terry and Cross Country Safaris. For most of the Japanese group this was their first overseas trip, and I'm sure they returned with a good impression of Australia. I found Terry very easy to get along with and thanks to him for his excellent driving and giving out his knowledge about the bush so freely.

Red Centre Safari

Chisholm Catholic College has used Cross Country Charters for a number of expeditions that have taken us from the North of W.A. to Central Australia.
Terry and Margaret Gillings are very professional in their approach to the planning and implementation of the programme. The catering and coaches are first class and Terry's knowledge of the areas visited, is also first class. I would highly recommend them to any group thinking of organising an outback adventure.

School Camp to Cue, Western Australia

I enjoyed my camp to Cue with you and I enjoyed helping cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner with you. I even liked Lake Austin and the talk about the mine shafts. We have made a book on the camp and have chosen all of the pictures. Some of us are missing Nallan Station and the lambs.

Yours sincerely

I first discovered Cross Country Charters by "word of mouth" some years ago, when I needed to organise a field trip for Geology students. The fact that Cross Country Charters was recommended to me in this way was sufficient a reference for me to enlist their services, and I was not disappointed. The good-natured drivers and efficient service was exceptional, and went far beyond just driving vehicles. On most student excursions where I require either short or long term efficient transport, I now always call upon Terry and Margaret at Cross Country Charters. Their costs are very competitive. I have recommended them to others and do so again to other businesses or any individual that may require the excellent service they offer.

YFU Australia North-West Exchange Safari

Dear Terry and Margaret,

On behalf of YFU Australia, I wish to express sincere appreciation for a terrific Safari held by Cross Country Charters for our 5 Exchange Students. I have spoken with Aimee, Robert. Toshiki. Meike and Inger and they were extremely happy with every thing that was organised for them, had a great time and would recommend your Safari to any one.

I certainly will be recommending to National Office that perhaps we could do this every year for our Exchange Students and as most of them are based in the Eastern States also, it would give them an insight to WA, and some of the beautiful sights over here to see.

Warm wishes
(RC for YFU WA)
