Soak up the outdoor Aussie lifestyle, together with your friends

When is the best travel time?

The best travel time depends on you and your friends. Australia is a country of contrast. Therefore, you can travel to the country at any time of the year. Let’s ask the question, ‘what types of things do you want to do?’. And ‘where do you want to go?’ With our local knowledge, we can help you decide which are the best places to visit and when.

Since the options are endless, we have listed 5 of our favourite places to visit together with your friends and when to go. And if you'd like to learn more, let's sit down together and discuss the best travel time.

How long do I need in Australia?

Australia with endless possibilities and since the country is so big, it is impossible to see everything in one trip. Therefore, you will need to answer a few questions. How much time do you have? Which time of the year would you like to go? Which parts of Australia would you like to visit? We can help you to decide all of these important things.

Based on you and your friend's wishes and desires, we can advise you on which regions to visit, how long and when to go. We would love to meet you and discuss the possibilities.

What can I see and do?

Embrace the laid-back lifestyle of the Australians in the heart of the great outdoors. Our activities range from diving in the Whitsundays to discovering the Noosa Everglades- the river of mirrors in a classic Canadian canoe. And of course, we have found the best value for money.

We have personally selected extraordinary local experiences in nature. Our focus is on nature conservation and small-scale locally owned companies. Take a look at our range of activities from easy-going to adventurous. We would love to tell you more about them.

Where can I stay?

Whether you prefer a spacious holiday house, a set of treehouses, or safari-style tents, we have found it. And can match you with accommodation that not only suits you but your friends too. With local hosts who warmly welcome you to their special part of Australia.

After we meet you and get to know you, we will then choose the best accommodation to suit your personalities. Take a look at a selection of some of our favourite accommodation for friends, from comfortable to luxury.

How do I travel around?

Australia features some of the best scenic drives in the world. And that is why we recommend travelling through the country by car. This gives you and your friends the flexibility and freedom to explore places a campervan cannot reach. We also strongly recommend a relaxed travel pace. Australia is the land of ‘road-trippin'.

Depending on you and your friend’s wishes, you may also need to take a domestic flight or two. Flying inside the country means, you will save time driving and therefore see more. We are happy to meet you at a time and place that suits you to discuss this further.
