Preferred inbound tour operator and destination management company for Australia

About us

It was at Botany Bay, now part of the metro Sydney area, that Captain James Cook first landed in Australia in 1770. Some 225 years later, it was the birthplace of Australia Inbound, the country's preferred Inbound Tour Operator and Destination Management Company. We design and operate itineraries that are guaranteed to deliver unique and unforgettable travel experiences for your clients!

Australia Inbound by Orange Journeys now operates from the picturesque Bega Valley, half way between Sydney and Melbourne via the coastal route.

We are a relatively small yet innovative and passionate Inbound Tour Operator, specialising in small-group travel and self-drive itineraries. In making their time in Australia truly memorable, we are committed to go the extra mile for our guests. In doing so, our multilingual team delivers the best service possible, values personal relationships and understands that competitive pricing is inherent to sustainable business relations and partnerships.

We are a proud member of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA), the Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) and the Australian Partner of Global Discovery, the global network of independent inbound operators.

Experience Australia

Whether one’s after an exciting off-road adventure, taking in mesmerising views of ever-changing landscapes, wander through lush rainforests, taste surprisingly good food & wine or simply relax on the soft sand of beautiful white beaches – it’s all possible in the land Down Under.

Aboriginal Culture

Immerse oneself in the rich culture of Indigenous Australians – learn about the importance of storytelling and explore their heritage through art, spirituality and dance. Take a seat around the campfire, enjoy a delicious bush tucker and let the tribe’s eldest take you on a cultural journey.


Ziplining through dense tropical rainforest, swimming with dolphins, whale sharks and manta rays, climbing the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, off-road driving in the epic Red Centre, chasing waterfalls and swimming holes, learning how to surf, or even snowboarding - an endless array of adventures awaits!

Great Barrier Reef

Swimming, snorkelling, diving or sailing – explore world-famous Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef system in the world. Whatever the budget, ‘the Reef’ offers the greatest of adventures and the chance to get close to a wide variety of marine life of the most vivid colours.

Local Guided Tours

Gain an insight into the Australian Way of Life as you learn more about the history and culture, discover hidden gems and receive valuable insider tips. Whether on foot, by bike, by boat or up in the air - the insider knowledge of ever friendly locals will enrich the experience!

Unique Stays

From the authenticity of rural farm stays and nature retreats to the uniqueness of glamping tents and outback lodges. From overnight stays aboard one of the world’s most iconic rail journeys stays to one on the Great Barrier Reef – find your ultimate accommodation experience in some of Australia’s most inspiring landscapes.

Wildlife & Nature

Australia’s iconic wildlife is cute and cuddly – get up close and personal with a koala, hand-feed a kangaroo or take a selfie with the smiling quokka. However, chances are you will have many more unforgettable wildlife encounters – swim with dolphins, go whale watching, spot crocodiles and so much more!
