Escorted Rail & Coach Tours

  • Rail Holidays Australia specialises in Fully escorted Rail & Coach Tours
  • Rail Holidays Australia’s Escorted tours are generally designed using a combination of Rail and Air to cover the long distance travel getting to the touring region. This allows more time to explore the region rather than spending days just to get to the region.
  • While Rail Holidays Australia uses local coach tours companies in the region which allows the passengers to get the local knowledge of the area. This is combined with many local guides at various locations which further enhances the passenger experience.
  • Rail Holidays Australia’s tours generally stay in quality 4 star accommodation whenever possible and on the remote tours the best available in the town.
  • Rail Holidays Australia’s tours include most meals and do not mention attractions or scenic flight unless the attraction or scenic flight is included as part of the tour. Furthermore on the rare occasion an attraction or scenic flight is an optional extra it is clearly stated in the brochure or web page.
  • Rail Holidays Australia is based in Bathurst and most tours are designed to start and finish in Bathurst however they can easily be joined from most other regional locations and Sydney. Air Flights are generally included in the costing if not it will be clearly stated with the tour cost. If the air cost is not originally included in the tour cost, a group airfare will be arranged when the air bookings open. If you are travelling from interstate or overseas, please contact us so suitable arrangements can be for you to join the tour.
