Postie's driving was awesome and he obliged everyone. Great trip.
Great trip- I enjoyed the red dirt track and seeing the remote communities. It is a different Australia, Malcolm did a great job - There is nothing quite like it.
We enjoyed the day trip with the postie and other travellers. The Postie was an excellent driver and the Kimberley Massage section was more comfortable than we expected. The stops were interesting and the coastal scenery was varied (mangrove beaches, swamps, white sand beaches) and spectacular. The only downside was the only way to hear the Posties comments or stories was to ride shotgun or try to catch a couple of minutes with him at one of the stops; at these he was busy with his deliveries, except for a vey short time at Beagle Bay. The muffins at the Middle Beach we a delicious surprise.
Thanks, I really enjoyed the drive back down from Kooljaman! Great chat, lots of laughs and met some other lovely passengers as well. Good to see what life is like on the postal run- thanks for the cool experience.
We had a great trip to Cape Leveque on the Postie Tour last week. Met some interesting people and saw some incredible scenery. Would highly recommend the experience.
We had the pleasure of accompanying Doug on his mail run north to Cape Leveque, stayed a few nights and then came back on the Monday postie run. Fantastic experience. Thoroughly recommended after we had spent 10 days on the Gibb River Road, nice to leave the car behind!!
The best thing we have done on this trip. Better than the normal sanitizer tour. We went and saw the country, people and place you wouldn't normally visit. The Postie Richard must have nerves of steel and hand of a midwife to drive those road. I felt really safe, but wouldn't want to drive myself to the Cape Leveque Peninsula. I am so glad we went with your run as booking was easy, being picked up and dropped off from our accommodation on time was a bonus and the Brownies were to die for. A great adventure recommend anybody to do it, once in a lifetime experience.

Great experience should NOT be missed, many thanx.
We had a most interesting day and considered the trip a taste of the 'real' outback postie experience. Perhaps the bad road is more comfortable in the bus than the Long wheel base troopie. It would be helpful to advise travelers that musculo-skeletal problems could be exacerbated , if opting for the small group transport.
The provision of chilled orange juice and delicious muffins was a treat. Time at the various drop off centers for mail was adequate except for Cygnet bay which was a delightful spot.
