"I have known Tony for a few years now but in May 2022 I decided to join his Simpson Desert 4WD trip. Tony was amazing, everything was well organized so that travellers could make the most of their trip. Tony’s knowledge of how to navigate the sand dunes and where to camp made me feel extremely safe as a novice four wheel drive owner way out of my comfort zone. He is also very entertaining and funny. I’d thoroughly recommend Tony as a guide." - Don Hobbs, Simpson Tour 2022

Review from Dr. Bruce Lyon, NSW - Cape York Tour, Aug 2021
"I've just returned from an exhilarating 21-day tour of the Cape York Peninsula with Australian 4x4 Treks. It was a tagalong tour, with a total of seven 4WD vehicles, made up of adventure-minded travellers, some with slide-on campers, others with tents, and ably led by energetic guide Tony Davys. Tony has an impressive record as a 4WD instructor, tour guide and tourism operator in both Australia and New Zealand, and currently offers tagalong treks into the central deserts and northern Australia.
Tony provided excellent guidance, particularly through such choke points on the Track, generally via comprehensive radio communications, but sometimes by wading through watercourses to give individual instructions for safe passage. Under such guidance, confidence in the ability of all drivers and their vehicles was seen to grow exponentially.
Other highlights were reaching Pajinka, the northernmost point of the Australian continent, the trip to Thursday Island, swimming at refreshing waterfalls, and the numerous sightings of wildlife such as fresh and saltwater crocodiles, wallabies and rare birds including the Papuan Frogmouth, Palm Cockatoo and Magnificent Riflebird.
If you are looking for a little adventure and would like to visit one of the most remote places in Australia, but perhaps lack the confidence or knowledge to embark on a tour of the Cape by yourself, I would highly recommend a tagalong tour, and in particular the comprehensive tour offered by Australian 4x4 Treks. You will leave the trek having experienced one of the best adventure holiday destinations available in Australia, with the added bonus of gaining enhanced confidence in your ability to travel to some remote places on your own."
