Holiday tour specials


Launch special - one free night accommodation offer Book by April 30, 2017


Outback NSW tourism brand, Out of the Ordinary Outback, has continued its expansion with the purchase of a Broken Hill motel - the fifth property for the company, which last year also acquired well-known outback tour business, Tri State Safaris.

Located in Argent St, Broken Hill and formerly called the Silver Spade Motel, the 14-room motel has been renamed The Argent Broken Hill, with all rooms being progressively refurbished this year to bring them in line with the quality product Out of the Ordinary Outback is keen to offer in the outback city.

The Argent will be used by Out of the Ordinary Outback to accommodate guests on its Tri State Safaris outback tours, which start and end in the heritage-listed city in far western NSW, as well as welcoming all other visitors to Broken Hill.

Launched last October by passionate bush lover and tourism businessman, Scott Smith, Out of the Ordinary Outback also includes Tri State Safaris, Warrawong on the Darling tourist camp and cabins at Wilcannia, the iconic White Cliffs Underground Motel, Cobar’s Copper City Motel, the Ivanhoe Hotel and a new Out of the Ordinary Outback visitor centre in the centre of Broken Hill.

To mark the launch of the new-look motel, Out of the Ordinary Outback is offering one free night’s accommodation at The Argent Motel Broken Hill with any booking made on a Tri State Safaris extended outback tour during 2017. The free night in Broken Hill can be used before or after the tour and is valid for bookings made by April 30, 2017 (excluding school holiday periods).

The offer is available for 11 Tri State Safaris tours starting in Broken Hill and lasting two or more days. These include the recently launched, three-day Outback Exposure Tour which features a cruise on the Menindee Lakes, a unique, overnight stay at the famous White Cliffs Underground Motel, one night in modern cabins by the billabong at Warrawong on the Darling, and an interpretive tour of the restricted access Historic Site at Mutawintji National Park, home to fascinating indigenous rock engravings and hand stencils. 

Departures are available on demand throughout 2017 for a minimum of two people. The three-day Outback Exposure tour is available from $1310 per person, twin-share, or from $1380 per person for solo travellers, with a bonus free night at The Argent at the start or end of the tour. 

The free night offer is valid for bookings made by April 30, 2017, excluding school holidays. For a list of all Tri State Safaris tours, please visit our Tours Page.
