Escorted coach tours and flexible coach travel provide a cost effective way to travel around Australia and meet fellow travellers.
Escorted Coach Tours
Escorted coach tours are a popular way to explore Australia. There are coach tours to suit all types of travellers, from energetic young backpackers to more relaxed retirees.
Everything is organised on an escorted tour. The tour guide will take care of most arrangements, and is there to help travellers enjoy their holiday. Accommodation and meals are often included, making escorted tours a cost-effective travel option.
Group tours are also a good option for those wanting to meet other travellers and share their Australian experience and to explore large parts of the country in a comfortable way.
Escorted coach tours are particularly appealing for travel in remote parts of the country, such as the Kimberley region, which some travellers may not be comfortable navigating on their own.
An extensive network of coach routes link towns and major cities throughout Australia. Coach travel offers an inexpensive way of travelling around Australia. Customers that are on tight budgets can save on accommodation costs, as many services operate overnight e.g. Sydney to Brisbane.
The main interstate company is Greyhound Australia, which operates all over the mainland and offers a number of different coach passes enabling an easy and inexpensive method of travelling around Australia. Most long distance coaches are equipped with air conditioning, adjustable seats, on-board toilets and a DVD player.
Coach Travel Passes
A variety of coach passes, which can be purchased in advance are available to visitors, making coach travel an inexpensive and flexible option.
