When it comes to professionalism,... When it comes to professionalism, guest care and quality of vehicles, it would be hard to beat McDermott's anywhere in Australia. They were the official ground transporter for the 2018 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, bringing guests from multiple locations to the site of the event on time and in comfort. For any conference organiser managing an event in Tasmania or abroad, make sure you consider McDermott's. Superb.
"The Qantas Australian Tourism Awards is a once in a lifetime chance to showcase the very best of a region. Showing a warm welcome together with the professional and punctual movement of over 800 guests for dinner was a critical start and end to the event. McDermotts were just a pleasure to deal with and the quality and condition of their coaches is superb. They assisted with clarity on the timelines to pick up from several hotels and deliver all guests promptly. As the event director, I appreciated not only the fact they were experienced and simply took care of the planning of the pickups, but that their drivers delivered to the very highest standard that was remarked upon by guests. I would never hesitate to recommend them "
Your drivers, were absolutely phenomenal again.They were always more than accommodating and helped us out when the situation meant we had to be flexible and change our plans. We would love to have the same drivers again!
I just wanted to send an email to compliment your company for a wonderfultour and a great driver. He was an excellent driver his knowledge of Tasmaniaand every place we went to was outstanding. The way he treated the more elderly was lovely.He mixed well with everyone and his driving on the more difficult roads was exceptional. I would without a doubt recommend your company.
Enjoy a combination of glorious Whitsundays and Central Qld outback explorations, starting in Airlie Beach and a sail to Whitehaven beach. Marvel at the white sands and the blue turquoise waters while sitting on deck. Some may not visit Townsville like we do, our local guide takes us on a comprehensive tour of Townsville and surrounds. Leaving the coast we head west to search for dinosaur fossils before settling into Longreach and having an outback spectacular with the Kinnon Family like no other. Wagon riding, campfire cooking, farm touring, it is all action packed here…..we finish the tour with an overnight, sit back and relax train ride through to Brisbane before returning home to Tassie.
As the wet season comes to an end in Far North Queensland it is seen as the best time to head there and explore the region. Our tour starts with a day in Cairns and exploring the Kuranda plateau. We will spend a full day out on the Great Barrier Reef with a marine biologist, view the reef from a glass bottom boat, tour in a semi-submersible boat and if you’re up for it, snorkel among the reef sharks and fish. Leaving the reef, we journey further north to Port Douglas for some time to relax on the beach but to also go tropical into Mossman gorge. From Port Douglas we head up and across the Atherton Tableland onto the Undara Lava tubes, the largest and longest lava tubes know on earth, we spend 2 nights here. Leaving Undara we stay at Yungaburra and explore the giant curtain figs, Crater Lakes National Park and enjoy some tea and scones at one of the tea plantations. This is an itinerary full of attractions to see and do and should not be missed
