Coach Tours in Australia


Coach travel is a great way to see Australia.

Two of the advantages of full size coach travel are comfort - the special suspension and wheelbase make for a very comfortable and quiet ride, and view - being high above the road allows for better vistas as you travel. Our own experience has shown that we can see kangaroos grazing in the bush from a coach that would be impossible to see from a car or other lower profile vehicle. You can also get up and walk about, and the coaches have a policy of changing seats at least every day, and sometimes more often, so everywhen gets to sit up front, next to the window etc. All escorted tours have a tour director and driver, both on the coach and at the various stops along the way. Smaller group tours may have a guide and driver, or just a driver/guide, depending on the tour and size of vehicle. For some tours special 4WD vehicles are used - in Australia coach touring doesn't just mean staying on the highway.

While coach touring is very popular in Europe, many visitors don't think of this option when considering their visit to Australia or New Zealand. Yet the wide open spaces, lightly used roads, and incredible scenery all lend themselves to making coach touring Down Under an excellent choice.

Two of the best operators of coach tours in Australia are AAT Kings and Australian Pacific Touring. Connections Adventures and Safaris are the APT tours for 18 to 36 year olds. We work closely with all three companies, know their coaches, itineraries and quality of operations, and can recommend then all. Although many of the itineraries cover the same ground (but many don't, especially APT's own camps in the north of Western Australia), the three companies have their own strengths and differences, which is why it's important to choose the one that's right for you.
