Harry and Sandy Osborn have been involved in tourism businesses for 26 years.
We moved from Victoria to Alice Springs in 1992, we managed a guest house for 13 years while also operating an acclaimed, safe and adventurous horse-riding business. In 2002 our horses were retired, and we concentrated on our fledgling 4WD tours. Ossies Outback 4WD Tours fulfilled our motto of “The remote Outback…. Tracks less Traversed” specialising in taking small groups to very remote Central Australian destinations including regular trips across the Simpson Desert.
In 2016 like many Territorians we moved south to be closer to family and started a new Farmstay business at Gulnare. As long-time members of Central Australian Tourism Industry Association in Alice Springs we joined Southern Flinders Tourism ‘n’ Tastes to align and learn about our new tourism address.
From previous experience we knew the importance of being among likeminded businesses, the past 2 ½ as members and regular attendees of SFTnT have confirmed this decision.
Since commencing the B&B concept of Ossies Farmstay, we have started a Goose Farm which will supply the niche gourmet aspect of the local food growing industry.
