Whoops! Its been over a year (nearly 2!) since we have added a new entry into our blog!

We are much better rehearsed at planning your next amazing holiday and looking after our school runs then trying to navigate how to add to our website blog!

 Holidays that are out right now!

Our Tropical Queensland Group

Our Tropical Queensland Group – 2023

Today is the swap over day for our Tropical Queensland and Outback Queensland tours.

One group will be finishing their holiday flying back to Sydney while the other group will be just beginning and flying into Cairns this afternoon. Some very lucky people are doing both and getting the best of both worlds – travelling with us up the coast and about to travel back down through Outback Queensland.

One of my favourite stops on this tour is at Cunnamulla on day 9 to see the Cunnamulla Fella and going back in time through the artesian time tunnel!

New Services – Hunter Valley Tours

We are very excited to be working with our local businesses to start offering tours into the Hunter Valley! We are particularly excited for this one as we live and work in the Upper Hunter and the opportunity to bring people to our community is such an important one for us. Our business has seen us take our locals all over Australia and now we are able to give back to our local community and instead of taking people out of our area we will be bringing them in!

Our area is known for its scrumptious locally produced foods, horse studs, mines, vineyards and farms so we are excited to show it all off!

We have a special offer for a 4 day tour into the Hunter Valley for groups of 30+ from only $630ppts! There is more information here > https://cowans.com.au/hunter-valley-tours/

I even arrived to my own wedding in one of our mini buses!

I get so excited for weddings! There’s a special kind of magic about the love and passion that comes with weddings, and I love to be a part of it!

Transportation for your guests to ensure they have safe passage to and from your wedding has become a bigger inclusion to weddings now more than ever.

We know the importance of ensuring your guests arrive on time and we are available to wait at the ceremony to further transport your guests to a separate reception venue if required.

If you are getting married soon or know someone who is, we can certainly offer comfortable, clean and most importantly efficient transport. The last thing any bride wants is for the guests to arrive after she does!!! You can enquire more here https://cowans.com.au/weddings/

Touring Post Covid

Now that everything from the world of having COVID in every sentence seems to be behind us, we have seen an interesting shift in the travel industry. Firstly everyone who had been putting off holidays are now getting out and about! Secondly people appear to be more interested in travelling Australia! This is certainly reflected in our bookings as we have 3 of our 2023 holidays already booked at capacity!

We are eager to move into our new office! We are still based at Mt Rest on the Golden Highway, but we have a lovely new space to work from. So if you ever find yourself travelling between Dubbo and Newcastle you’re very welcome to stop in for a cuppa and a chat!
