Adventure Tours Australia

Adventure Tours is the leading small group tour operator in Australia. They're a bunch of Aussies that have been leading travellers through this big ol’ continent over the past 24 years.
Informative and immersive, their tours are for those looking to develop a true-blue understanding of Australia’s inner-workings – and have a great time while at it. They take one comfy, air-con equipped 4WD or minibus, load it up with a knowledgeable guide, a bunch of fellow adventurers, tents, swags and some packed picnics, then head out into the wilds. The whole outfit is far more your classic Aussie road trip than it is a standard charter bus tour – just with someone looking after the driving and navigating for you.

Most of the tours include a mix of activities, culture, wildlife and sightseeing, so you get a little bit of everything, but on offer is a range of dedicated tours for those who want to focus on a particular activity including walking, family, wildlife and in-depth holidays. You can also choose the comfort level for you, so it's up to you whether you'd prefer to camp in the great outdoors or sleep with a roof over your head.

Real life experiences are those moments you know you’re really alive and experiencing something special. While it could be the instant you see one of the world’s great icons for the first time, it is more likely to be the moment you find yourself in the middle of a village square soccer game, being treated to a home-cooked meal by your new local friends or sharing a laugh with your fellow travellers as you try a new mode of transport … camel anyone? These unexpected moments are what travelling with us is all about, giving you a trip like no other.

Peregrine Adventures

One thing learned by Peregrine – you never outgrow adventure. The spirit that drives you to get out there and see the world. 
Not through a coach window or with 50 strangers wearing headsets, not with a personal butler or a big buffet breakfast – but intimately, authentically, memorably.
Peregrine are for premium adventures, and that means embracing the spirit of adventure through a more immersive cultural journey. Hand-picked accommodation, small groups, award-winning local guides, added inclusions and a more considered pace. Premium means an exceptional experience, but never an artificial one.
Yes, adventure still exists. It’s still out there. It just got a whole lot easier to find.
