   About Us   

Quality Tour & Cruise Operator for over 30 Years!


Waratah Adventure Tours was founded in 1986 by German-born Rudi Diederich. Rudi startet his business with camping safaris across the 5th continent in the pioneer days of the tourism Industry down under. 30 years later a lot has changed but the general philosophy hasn't: Small groups, and accommodated tours still have the great outdoors as their main focus. Additionally a cruising division was founded in 2002 and since then their personalized Sydney Harbour Cruises utilizing the company's own power catamaran "EnigmaX" are a great success story.

Rudi's partner Ms Gerda Weber is as the General Manager and Financial Controller the backbone of the business and in charge of day-to-day operations. Anna Kalisiak is in charge of Reservations and Jens Hertel is our head guide and "Jack of all Trades".

But the wheels do not turn without the driver-guides based in NSW, the Northern Territory and North Queensland. In Cairns our subcontractors Katja and Christian deserve a special mention for their dedication. Then there is the crew of the cruise cat "EnigmaX" which is looking after passengers while cruising Sydney's Port Jackson.

From its headquarters in Sydney the firm operates day tours. From bases in Alice Springs and Cairns they cover the Red Centre and the tropical rainforests of Far North Queensland with extended tours.

Waratah Adventures is licensed by nature conservation agencies and is an Accredited Quality Tourism Business.

The company operates a fleet of 7 to 15-seater mini coaches and 4x4 vehicles. Tour modules with different styles of accommodation including hotels and lodges are the main products of its operation.

All driver-guides are fully qualified English and German language speakers and specialists in the Australian geography, culture and flora/fauna.


Waratah Adventure Tours is an energetic and versatile company and is enjoying an outstanding reputation in the inbound tourism sector.
