Season Updates 19/20

The new Season of Stray starts 1 October 2019 and with it comes a few changes to make our trips the best way to travel Australia's East Coast! 

Freestyle Tours Australia

 

Our Freestyle Tour products have been fully reviewed and optimised to ensure they have the perfect mix of authentic experiences and local culture in all the places you’ve gotta see on the East Coast! We reckon these itineraries are the best around!

The 19/20 Australia Freestyle Tours have:

✔ More off the beaten track excursions
✔ More National Parks (5 Northbound) 
✔ More World Heritage Areas (4 Northbound) 
✔ More free time in our favourite places (so you don’t have to hop off if you’re short on time)
✔ More meals
✔ More activity inclusions
✔ More accommodation - now included for all nights of the itinerary 

Freestyle Tours depart Northbound and Southbound twice per week (the most of any East Coast tour company!) 

These changes will apply for tours departing after 1 October 2019.  Customers who purchased a Freestyle Tour at the 18/19 rate but are travelling after 1 October will keep all of their original inclusions and number of nights of accommodation. They will get the additional guided walks and ecology talk on Magnetic Island included at no extra cost. 


Freestyle Passes Australia

We've built more value into our Freestyle Passes too (without increasing the price!).  We've added two incredible guided hikes in Magnetic Island and Conway National Park (Airlie Beach). 

Magnetic Island - Radical Walking Tour
In addition to the guided Forts Complex Walk and Koala spotting hike, Guides will host the Radical Walking Tour to the beautiful palm-fringed beaches of Balding Bay and Radical Bay. 

Airlie Beach - Rainforest Hike
Guides will take the group hiking in Conway National Park to the top of Mount Rooper for almost 360 degree views of Airlie and out to the Whitsunday Islands! 


In Location Guides Australia

 

Introducing In-Location Guides between Rainbow Beach and Cairns! 

Between Rainbow Beach and Cairns we travel long distances on the comfortable, fast trains. From 1 October, we are introducing In-Location Guides: local experts who bring their own unique flavour to the trip, providing expert information about the region, local tips and guiding off the beaten track excursions.

They will meet the group at the train station and get them settled in at their accommodation before the fun begins. On departure day, they’ll escort the group to the station and wave goodbye, sending them on to meet their next awesome In-Location Guide!

The Sydney to Rainbow Beach sector will continue to be hosted by fun Driver Guides on our private coaches.
