Adventure World Travel may not look a day over 30 but it does have the wisdom of one heading into its 40s. Thankfully so, because the tour brand reached the big 4-0 last night.

Adventure World Travel celebrated its 40th anniversary with its favourite 70 VIP Travel Advisors at Sydney’s The Mint, a historical and inspirational venue in line with the celebration.

Representatives from Adventure World Travel’s GSA brands, Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic, Explore Worldwide, Star Clippers, Natural Habitat Adventures and Rocky Mountaineer were also in attendance, who help form an integral part of the Adventure World Travel brand and its ethos – Culture & Heritage, Wildlife & Wilderness, and Active Adventures.


Neil Rodgers, Managing Director of Adventure World Travel, welcomed guests referencing the venue’s long and fruitful history much akin to that of the brands’.

“We have endured a very rewarding 40 years of business, much of which we couldn’t do without our travel agent partners. You have helped us grow and expand and have provided Adventure World with a constant source of support in getting our message across to clients.”

Event guests then headed to the Gold Melting Room with its curved gold ceiling and glass floor-to-ceiling windows, to be treated to a three-course dinner and sparkling wine.

Special guests from partner brands, Ben Ittensohn from Explore Worldwide and Don Martinson from Natural Habitat Adventures flew in from their respective bases of the UK and Colorado, sharing their passion for exploring and understanding the world with guests on the night.


The launch event in Sydney is the first in Australia, with events to follow in Melbourne, Brisbane and Peth to continue the brand’s commitment to educating and celebrating travel advisors and continuing its 40th-anniversary celebrations.

The TreadRight Foundation was also showcased, highlighting some of the sustainable tourism projects that Adventure World Travel works with, including its Wildlife and Heritage Initiatives in which Rodgers expressed a great passion for ensuring the environment and communities TTC’s family of brands visit, remain vibrant for generations to come.
