16 April Tour Updates
As we are all waiting and watching what restrictions will be eased and they will be done in a staggered manner and will vary state by state. International borders are set to remain shut for the rest of the year, which gives way to domestic travel.
After that, people will start venturing to intrastate holidays and tourist towns. Interstate travel will follow next. With globetrotting on hold for months, Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham this week flagged a push to encourage Australians to “holiday at home”.
Like all tourism and travel businesses, all we can do is have our plans, get the rule book, read it and off we go and the team is ready and waiting to go.
Australia’s response to the virus has been pretty good and we will be perceived as a safe destination. For now we are looking at destinations within Western Australia to start with and as the Government approvals for travel ease we will be extending our tours throughout the nation.
With everything that has occurred and international travel off the travel list for now what is your Australia’s Bucket List?

This is to provide our passengers with the latest information to help guide and support you for your upcoming tours with the team in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). At the time of this email, the risk of COVID-19 infection remains low in Australia, however, the situation continues to evolve and we are mindful of the need to be vigilant in protecting the health of our passengers and the community.
Whilst it is important to remain alert but not alarmed, we have taken a number of steps to increase your protection. While we have always maintained high cleaning standards we have stepped up our routine cleaning, with disinfectant spray and liquids, this includes cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and fixtures in the coach including hand rails, armrests and bathrooms. Hand sanitizer have always and will continue to be provided, we also recommend carrying a personal supply for when not in the coach.
The most important thing to avoid catching any virus, be it coronavirus, the flu or the common cold, is to wash your hands and avoid touching your face, regularly wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, cover your sneeze or cough with your arm, not your hands. If you’re healthy, wearing a mask is not recommended according to the World Health Organisation. If you have respiratory issues like coughing or sneezing, then you should wear a mask. If you have flu-like symptoms, you should seek your doctor’s advice.
For more information on Coronavirus, visit the Australian Department of Health, contact the National Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080.
We look forward to another interesting, exciting and fun tour through beautiful country and we will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and advise you of any information relevant.
