About Aussie Tagalong Tours
G’day folks, I’m Terry Byrne and I own and operate Aussie Tagalong Tours.
I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, approximately 100 kilometres or so north of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. I was born in Julia Creek, Western Queensland, went to Mt. Carmel and moved to Townsville with the family.
Being centrally located on the east coast of Australia, the Sunshine Coast offers easy access to the country’s far north, outback and southern regions.
I have over 40 years’ experience, working in the field of transport safety. I spent two decades in the Australian Army, in the Royal Australian Corps of Transport , training and testing multi-terrain vehicles of all classes. I was also responsible for moving large numbers of personnel and vehicles safely around the country.
I have 20 years’ service working as a Driving Examiner and Road Safety Advisor with the Department of Transport and Main Roads in Queensland. One of the highlights of my career was working on the project team for QSAFE the Queensland Practical Driving Test, training department driving examiners and rural police officers in the test delivery.
Studying at the University of New England, I formalised my transport safety education with a Diploma in Road Safety and Advanced Driving Skills.
Australia is an amazing country and I’m passionate about helping every day Aussies explore the spectacular places it has to offer.
At Aussie Tagalong Tours we give you the opportunity and peace of mind to see Australia without the stress. I hold all classes of license and I am sure you will benefit from my experience.
Come along, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly your confidence and skill level increases as you are guided through our ever changing landscape. Aussie Tagalong Tours focuses on improving your four wheel drive skills, so you can safely navigate all terrain types with certainty.
