Intrepid Launches 14 New Local Aussie Adventures

Intrepid Travel continues to grow its local offerings with 14 more Australian adventures designed to support local communities and offer meaningful First Nations experiences.

Intrepid Travel continues to grow its local offerings with 14 more Australian adventures designed to support local communities and offer meaningful First Nations experiences.

Intrepid Travel has introduced 14 new Australian itineraries to its growing collection of local tours.

Designed to support local communities and celebrate First Nations cultures and histories, the new tours mark a significant step in Intrepid’s ongoing commitment to developing trips closer to home, as state borders reopen and traveller confidence continues to grow.

The 14 new local adventures across every state and territory (except ACT) bolster Intrepid’s existing Local Travel range, launched earlier this year. Intrepid now offers a total of 22 local trips in Australia.

The new tours

As part of the new tours, travellers can expect more active and wellness itineraries, as well as trips that highlight local food and produce.

After a year when many extended families have been separated by state border closures or forced to spend extended time in lockdown, there are also new family adventures that will bring families closer and out of the house. 

“Our new local trips allow travellers to confidently get out and back on the road, and discover Australia’s diverse cultures, histories, landscapes, food, wine and more,” says Sarah Clark, Intrepid Travel’s APAC Managing Director.

“After a year when many people have felt isolated, these adventures allow travellers to come together, reconnect, get active, try something new and support local communities.”

Intrepid has also deepened their support and commitment to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, with many trips featuring First Nations experiences. 

“Australia is home to the oldest continuing culture in the world and we felt that this period of travelling closer to home is an opportunity to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and experiences,” adds Clark.

“I’m proud that many of our 14 new trips include a First Nations experience and we will continue to build on this in the future.”
