Group Planning Service

If you are a tour organiser for a club or community organisation why not let us take the hassle out of tour organising for you? Rail Holidays Australia has organised many special interest tours such as Garden groups, special events, shows and general tours.

I am sure I will be able to assist in making this adventure memorable and hassle free.

I have 16 years’ worth of successful itineraries to draw from as a starting point. Tours in all states; from 2 to 14 days.

Rail Holidays Australia have found specially made tours including most meals are better value than off the shelf multi departure tours which have few meals included.

These tours will be tailor made to your groups’ interests and most importantly budget.

So please give me a call or send me an email to discuss your group’s next Australian Adventure.

Please note I will not add your members to my tours data base /mail out list unless they request me to do so.

Rail Holidays Australia can organise your tour to encompass any form of travel but why not consider using rail to cover the long distance travel. It allows your members a bit more freedom to get up and move around, get that cuppa and meal at their leisure. Not to mention the obvious concession cost advantages in train travel. Arrive at your destination relaxed and in a more timely fashion to enable you to see more of the desired destinations. Once there, I organise a local area coach operator who will enlighten your group on the points of interest and local gems of his backyard.

I have extensive experience in organising tours and have access to some of the best accommodation rates available. I have travelled extensively with groups using local states rail networks, major tourist trains like the Indian Pacific and The Ghan. Rail Holidays Australia have access to some of the best available group air fares to combine with tours as required.

My involvement with your club can be as little or as much as requested.

I can deal solely with the Club’s tour organiser; accepting one payment for deposit and another final payment. Or I can offer the full service at no extra cost; collecting all payments (layby payments accepted), sending out individual deposit/payment details letters and 2 copies of a personalised travelling itinerary. Please remember I will not add your members to my tours data base /mail out list unless they request me to do so.
