Kangaroo Island Escape – Book Now!


South Australia is one of Australia’s premier regions for fresh produce, good wine and fantastic scenery. Which is why we are visiting stopping there on our trip in October. A lot of people have asked though, what exactly is there to see and do on Kangaroo Island. Well Kangaroo Island is the size of Bali and a fantastic nature preserve , farming community and sightseeing attraction .. but rather than explaining it myself here is a short snippit from Kangaroo Island Tourism ..

(If you are seeing this by e-mail I encourage you to head up to our website where you can clearly see the above inserted youtube clip.)

As you can see Kangaroo Island is incredible, which is why we are combining it with Adelaide, the Barossa Valley and the Indian Pacific for our South Australian Escape.  Running from the 10th to the 17th October 2015 this tour will take us from Sydney to Sydney and experience some of the best of the south from only AU$2781 per person twin share.

Please look at the groups departures on our site for the itinerary or contact us for full details

Still Available In 2015

AyutthayaSometimes, and I am sure you agree, it seems like we are always talking about whats next, and that the dates are getting further and further out. While this is great for those of you who would like to pre-plan your trip to Egypt, or Africa, we would like to point out that we do still have a number of departures for 2015 that can take more travellers or have some availability left.

September 2015: European River Cruise – while the earlybird and fly free deals have ended the cruise-tour from Prague to Paris still has a few cabins available for allocation, so if you ever wanted to journey the scenic Danube in great company this may be your chance. I suggest that you get in touch as soon as possible if you wish to go!

October 2015: We have finalised dates for our Kangaroo Island Escape, a fantastic trip from Sydney to South Australia taking in Kangaroo Island Adelaide and the Barossa .. you can read about it in full here!

November 2015: In November we have another one of our introductory tours available – a perfect mix of free time combined with touring in an often neglected destination, join us as we explore Bangkok and Chiang Mai! More details can be found here on our website!

December 2015: We are also still looking for starters for our Christmas Markets tour, this is a uniquely charming and special time to visit Germany and would love to hear from more of you about going!

So as you can see there is plenty to still attend or travel on in 2015 – if any are of interest please let us know!

My Kangaroo Island Escape


We have almost half the numbers we need to get a date set for our Kangaroo Island and South Australia Trip for late September set. We have a fantastic 7 night / 8 day getaway planned, taking in the highlights of the Barossa Valley, Adelaide and Kangaroo Island. Heading down to Adelaide and back , going on the Indian Pacific in Gold Class in one direction and by air in the other, this trip will allow you to get a true taste of South Australia’s Sights, Sounds and Cuisine. This trip will run with a minimum of 10 Travellers and can be used as a start point for those that may want to extend and do extra time in Adelaide, a Murray River Cruise  or even continue along the Indian Pacific to Perth.

Expressions Of Interest: We are still seeking more interested parties for our Christmas Markets Tour, and more for our journey to Egypt which looks like it may already have enough interested travellers to get away!

Classifieds: We still have a number of travellers looking for companions for other trips including China, the Kimberleys and a North Pacific Cruise. Remember to review our classifieds regularly for updates.

Events: We have a few days left for people to register for our Silos Luncheon ($35) which is a perfect way to meet possible travelling companions, and for those that are joining our Cruise with the Red Hat Society remember we are all meeting tomorrow (20th January 2015) to hand out documents and run over any last questions.

Workshops: Finally just a quick reminder that our next three Workshops are for Singapore (February 4th 2015), Italy (April 8th 2015) and East Africa .. being Kenya and Tanzania (3rd June 2015) if you want to come just sign up online!

Seeking Travellers! 2015 Departures


With only a few days left before the “Silly Season” is well and truly upon us I thought I should take a few moments to remind everyone about a few of the departures we are still seeking travellers for in 2015.

While new travellers are still welcome for the Canada & Alaska Tour and the European River Cruise we are hoping for more looking to join our Golden West Adventure next October, and our Thai Discovery Tour in November.

We also have two programmes we need more expressions of interest in so we can ensure that as we package them up we have the numbers to get them away!

Kangaroo Island: The first is a genuine taste of Australia, a journey just over a week long taking in the natural, cultural culinary and historical highlights of Kangaroo Island and Adelaide, combined with some time in the Barossa Valley and a trip aboard the Indian-Pacific. This trip will hopefully run in late September 2015, but we will need minimum numbers to run it. With several already interested now is the time to let us know that you would like to come! As you can see Leonie has recently been on site to scope out some of the highlights and believes it will be a fantastic trip!

Christmas Markets: With this years season of celebration upon us it is time to look ahead to think about what you will be doing next Christmas .. or more importantly just prior! We have a great programme we are hoping to get off the ground covering the best of Germany alongside the unique revelry that are the German Christmas Markets. A perfect chance to explore a taste of Christmas that is not usually seen within Australia.

So if you are intrigued by Kangaroo Island or the Christmas Markets or would like to join one of our other 2015 tours do not hesitate to let us know!
