When Marion Bunnik started Bunnik Tours, Australia didn’t need another tour company - it needed a better way of touring!
On the day our borders closed Bunnik Tours turned 25. In the preceding 25 years we have built a solid business; first as a travel agency, and then some 15 years ago we created our touring brand.
Our overarching aim remains simple, to provide a better way for Australians to see the world.
We do this by creating a series of unique holiday experiences:
- Small group tours of no more than 20 clients, specifically designed for Australian travellers to capture the essence of the places we visit.
- Tours that provide the perfect balance between organised sightseeing and free time for independent discovery.
- Holidays that visit the famous attractions but also wander off the tourist trail.
- Complete and stress-free tour packages.
We have always been a family of travellers at heart, exploring the world around us with equal parts wonder, good humour and curiosity. As a family business we understand that our family's name and reputation is at stake every time we sell a holiday. We take your trust very seriously and look forward to the day soon when we can again help you explore the world.
Bunnik Tours is the current AFTA National Travel Industry Award-winner for Best Tour Operator International and Dennis Bunnik is the chair of the Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO). We are actively involved in helping to improve the overall professionalism of the Australian travel industry.
Discover our passion for this incredible planet and its inhabitants, and experience your tour the ‘Bunnik Way’!
Still Dreaming, Still Bunnik Tours!
