Tour Guide/Company: Phillip Molesworths Rainbow History Tours

Discover the forgotten North West regional Victoria. Wimmera and Southern Mallee history tours based around the Hindmarsh, West Wimmera and Yarriambiack shires.

We visit the early squatters of the 1840 on and follow the growth of the region as it transformed from open range grazing of the Squatters to the Selectors and their farms.

Visit historic sites and hear about the lives of the first settlers in the area, visit their homes and lonely graves scattered in remote arrears. See their simple homes and brush structures, See the netting fence, constructed in the late 1880’s to stop the spread of rabbits and dingoes, see museums and experience the remote Mallee bush land and the desert parkland of Wyperfeld National park with its unique landscape flora and fawner.

Tours can be arranged for specific sites, or from half day all the way to three day tours taking in the entire region visiting the Big Desert and Little Desert.

As an added feature meals at local establishments can be organised with country style entertainment. Please contact me for details.

Hello everybody, Our committee has been very active and, like everybody else, have been trying to keep across all the information and “best guess” what tourism will look like in both the short and long term. We are also acutely aware of the reality that none of us now has any work. Hopefully, some would have been able to access Jobskeeper or at least Jobseeker? An important part of what we are doing is communication We have already contacted Federal, State Tourism Ministers and other tourism bodies outlining the current situation with our members. We have also now contacted over 100 operators recognising their situations and that our industry will have to gradually rebuild and that we look forward to proactively rebuilding our tourism industry with them. Some of you would have heard our new “media star” Michelle Brown on Melbourne’s most popular morning radio talkback shows on ABC and 3AW recently? Michelle certainly was able to promote the role of guides and our Association. We have formed a sub-committee to specially look at a communication strategy going forward Thanks to James McFarlane, Katy Pavlova Tien Nguyen for accepting this challenge. In a short- time they have produced a really comprehensive and exciting plan. The targets are you, the existing members, non- member guides, Tour operators and Industry, Government and Tourism Boards and, importantly, travellers. * We will take immediate steps to update /align our webpage to our new plan. * You will soon see case studies some of your colleagues “promoted” on IGTV and Facebook through a You Tube channel. We are looking for more volunteers to be involved -let us know if you are interested * We will have regular/scheduled communication with Government and Tourism Boards. We will load this plan to the member section of our website. Comments are welcome Membership Fees In recognition of the support of current members and the challenging times we are now in , we have decided to extend all current memberships to June 2021. We also plan to offer non- members guides and operators access to limited member category for a short time that will enable us to engage and communicate PTGAA information. This could convert to full membership/ support for PTGAA and more opportunities for our members. Other Links Thank you to members who have provided information and useful links for us. Linda Monmouth has provided a link to very inexpensive courses ($8) at University of Queensland Business School  here Birgittta March -a link to birds of Australia here. A great resource with links to all regions of Australia. Susan Rees – an important link to a 30 minute COVID 19 infection control training – recommended for us all to do here Leanne Saward who has prepared a comprehensive statistical snapshot of Traveller FAQs.  It will be a very valuable resource for us all.  It has been added in the Member Resources section or click here.
