Adventure Tours is the leading small group tour operator in Australia. They are a bunch of Aussies that have been leading travellers through this big ol’ continent over the past 25 years.
Informative and immersive, Australian Adventure Tours 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.
Adventure Tours guides are an enthusiastic and informed bunch who get a real kick out of taking you through what they know and love about their country. They've all got comprehensive training in first aid, driving, fatigue management, environmental awareness and local history and geology, so you can expect your experience to be as enjoyable as humanly possible. We're pretty proud of them.
From working cattle stations to well-appointed wilderness lodges, desert campsites to underground bunkhouses, the accommodation we use is all part of the ATA experience. Some of it may be a tad rustic, but we believe evenings by a campfire and nights in a canvas tent or swag are the best ways to meet the Outback.
First Nations experiences
The close working partnerships Australian Adventure Tours have established with First Nations communities continue to inform their understanding of the land, as well as inspire in their travellers an appreciation for one of the world's oldest living cultures.
