We love what we do

Creating extraordinary, life-changing experiences for young Australians and providing them with the skills and inspiration to build successful, rewarding and impactful lives is a privilege and we take this very seriously.

 How we do it

We’re Australian owned and operated and we put people and purpose before profit.

We handcraft educational and socially responsible journeys, that enrich the mind and nurture the heart.

Your souvenir… is a broader perspective.

 Our difference

We believe travel and education go hand in hand, but we take a holisitic approach.

By combining curriculum based touring with our own incredible initiatives, we’re adding empowering and valuable new dimensions to a student’s travel experience. All of our tours incorporate at least one, or a combination of our unique projects.
