We went on the tour today and it was THE best tour we have been on during our 12 years on the road. Hardus, our guide, is so interesting to listen to and so passionate about Weipa and it’s history. We couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough. Hardus, you earnt 10 Stars ⭐️ with your informative and intriguing commentary. Keep up the awesome work

This tour is a must. The information regarding the town and its history and the mining was incredibly but certainly not boring. A very informative and enjoyable 3 hours

This is an amazing and informative experience. From the beginnings of Weipa, to understanding the local fauna and flora, as well as an in depth knowledge of mining, Hardus spoke with enthusiasm and passion with touches of humor. The sense of community really shines through. This is such a unique tour.

If you want to relax whilst being shown around Weipa then look no further.
Excellent tour and extremely informative the only negative would be it's definitely a PR spin for Rio Tinto however, it is a great 3.5hrs well spent accessing areas you otherwise wouldn't get to see.

This tour is a must for everyone visiting Weipa. Our guide was absolutely excellent, explaining everything so well. I'm sure he knows all there is to know about the town, both past and present, and was also able to tell some interesting stories as we drove around looking at the the sights. Then on to the mine, where we were able to watch the process first hand, and again, our guide was able to explain in detail what was going on. The tour was interesting from beginning to end! Thank you for a great morning.
