Our Philosophy

“Travel has changed over the decades. And now, more than ever, we as travellers seek a connection with the people, a little gem that others have not yet discovered and a move away from mass tourism. Our journey has led us to create experiences that are more intimate, that tap into what a local may do and to bring a ‘moment of stillness’, whether on a beach, atop a cliff, or on the water.

We are dedicated to showcasing the warmth of the local providores and experiences as well as the natural beauty of Australia.

So here we are, sharing with you, what we believe is the next genre of day touring – Explore Australia – Day Tours from Melbourne that are well crafted and deliver that ‘local feel’ with joy, a sense of fun and absolute quality.”
