  • I am a solo traveller, is that okay?

    Do not worry you will find on the tour alot of your fellow travellers arrive alone, others are with friends or partners. It really doesn’t matter, because by the end of day one you will have already made a great group of friends on the bus!

  • Is Stray a party bus tour?

    The main priority of the tours is getting you out to see the real Australia, and there will be some early starts so that you can fit in as much adventure as possible. However what you do in your evenings is your own choice and of course, the Stray team are a sociable bunch who enjoy a cold beer or two!
