On Course Tours and Travel Team

With over 3 decades offering diverse travel experiences to the mature aged traveller, On Course Tours and Travel have developed a deep understanding of high-quality personalised service and the creation of unique in-house itineraries.

Their tours are built with the intention of bringing like-minded people together to experience authentic cultural encounters and enjoy the warmth and hospitality of regional Australia and beyond.

On Course create immersive unique itineraries visiting small towns and regions in support of local economies. Especially many communities that have been affected by natural disasters including fires and floods.

Their mission is to foster a sense of community through their tours and deliver these travel experiences to all mature aged Australians to help combat the growing epidemic of isolation and loneliness felt by this sector in particular.

Indigo states “I would like to thank our thousands of loyal customers for their support over the past 30 years – we are thrilled to be able to offer even more diverse and exciting tours into the future. Whether it be enchanting day tours around Sydney through to exotic overseas trips. In February 2025 On Course will be running a first of its kind; a mature aged volunteer tourism trip to Cambodia to help teach English and support underprivileged Cambodian school kids.”

Client’s seem to agree with the judges, with many outstanding testimonials found on their website including this one from Marlene of NSW, “Thank you so much for a wonderful trip to King Island. I have been on a great many coach trips but can honestly say that yours are the best by far (I was also on the Christmas in July trip to Nelson Bay with you guys), I hope to join some more of your tours next year.”

The future of Australia’s mature aged travel services seem to be in good hands!
