Coach Tours

All kinds of folks come to the Outback. Joining a tour group is a popular way to experience the rugged beauty... in the comfort of an air-conditioned bus and with a packed program of interesting sights and engaging activities so you do not miss the best of what may be your once-in-a-lifetime bucket-list trip! 

Fun Over Fifty and Trade Travel are two companies who have been bringing their guests to Outback Queensland and Camden Park Station for the past two years, and they are a pleasure to work with. They share the rich heritage, iconic characters and wilderness of the Outback with warm care for guests and their comfort.  

Fun Over Fifty is three-generations of women (and a husband) working together with their crew to share the best in touring with their guests. Fun Over Fifty is a true leader in coach tours, winning Gold at the Australian Tourism Awards for Tour and Transport Operators! Their upcoming tours to Longreach are in August and September: Heroes of Longreach & Winton. BOOK NOW. 

Trade Travel, another family-run tour company, has been a ‘senior group’ travelling specialist for 25 years, though they also create itineraries for school and specialty groups. The next tour they have to our neck of the woods is in early July: A Big Week Out-Back. BOOK NOW. 

Kangaroo Bus Lines brings school kids out to venture in their backyard to learn about the history and heritage of outback Queensland. Their tours are based on the Outback Queensland Education Experience Program which was developed for students from years 5 – 9, subsidising $130 each to experience cattle stations, natural wonders, pioneering Australians and Indigenous cultures. Kangaroo Bus Lines brings students from the southern east coast of Queensland into Longreach, Winton, Charleville and Birdsville, and even into the Red Centre of NT.  

Villa from Western Australia, Great Value Holidays and Seniors Coach Company have also recently started to bring their guests to Camden Park Station, which means the station is now attracting visitors from a wide area of Australia.  

Upcoming tours from these companies include  
Discover the Outback Way: Blue Mountains to Longreach  
Longreach & Winton Experience  
The Real Outback Spectacular 

Coach tours are dedicated to complete customer care – that’s their business – so travellers are assured their trip is absolutely unforgettable. It’s a great way to take in the beauty of the Outback - highly recommended by your mate, Outback Dan!
