About ACTC


Australian Connection Travel Company

The Australian Connection Travel Company (ACTC) was created from our desire to be the exemplary standard of service for small group luxury tourism in Australia.

We believe a great experience comes from even better communication! To facilitate this, we employ only the best bi-lingual guides (and former teachers) Australia has to offer.

We believe that a genuine travel experience is integrally linked to the connection you develop with the people, places & things you encounter. As such we strive tirelessly to use our knowledge & storytelling to give our guests a sense of connection to the beautiful, wondrous and ancient lands we visit. It is more than our job, it is our passion & pleasure to show you our Sunburnt Country in the most comfort, style & safety possible.

Whether we accompany you for a half day, or for 13 days, we endeavor to embody the friendly Spirit of Australia, entertain & educate our guests in a respectful & professional manner, on all things Australian. We go above & beyond to indulge our guests in an authentically Australian experience- not just another tour.
