Beautiful East Coast
“This was an outstanding two weeks. The East Coast is full of beauty and surprises. Out tour guide Ralph Giles was knowledgeable and courteous, and eager to share his love of his country with his guests. We recommend highly Via Travel.”

Amazing East Coast Trip
“Booked this 14-day tour to get under the skin of East Coast Australia and was definitely not disappointed. This is no quick whizz up the Pacific Coast Highway, its a take the back roads adventure. Our guide, Ralph was so knowledgeable about everything Oz and his enthusiasm inspired the whole group to get the most out of the trip. Expect bush walks; wild swims in waterholes, lakes and waterfalls; fantastic scenery; opportunities to visit and interact with wildlife; kayak with dolphins at Byron Bay and snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef. Worries about being a little older were totally unfounded. If you are young at heart, reasonably fit and have sense of adventure this is the tour for you. Well done Via Travel, I look forward to another adventure very soon.”
