Australia Geographic Travel

• Australian Geographic has acquired 50% of the travel company

Australian Geographic, which for over 36 years has shared the essence and spirit of Australia through its stories and photography, has acquired 50% of the travel company, Insight Australia Travel, to launch Australian Geographic Travel.

Australian Geographic travellers will now be able to immerse themselves in landscapes, bird watching, hiking and active wildlife conservation projects, all whilst enjoying authentic and supportive interactions with local people and Australia’s ancient First Nations culture. 

The small group tour options cover many Australian destinations including Arnhem Land and the MacDonnell Ranges in the Northern Territory, The Daintree Forest, Cape Tribulation and Fraser Island in Queensland, Raymond Island and East Gippsland in Victoria, Eyre Peninsula and Kangaroo Island in South Australia, Maria Island and Bruny Island in Tasmania, the Stirling Ranges and Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, plus many more. Australian Geographic Travel currently offers a choice of over 30 itineraries all bookable via the Australian Geographic website.

Insight Australia Travel has been operating for almost 20 years curating and delivering Australian itineraries. Founder and managing director of Insight Australia Travel, Birgit Bourne, will also head up Australian Geographic Travel. 

“Insight Australia is absolutely delighted to be teaming up with Australian Geographic to extend our strong international presence to also offer small group sustainable Australian experiences to nature and culture lovers from around the globe,” she said.

“Australian Geographic Travel will explore and enlighten while respecting and preserving the diversity and beauty of local wildlife, landscapes, culture and people. Our travellers want an experience with purpose and to develop a deep connection with a destination by supporting and respecting its environment. We are committed to sustainable travel and our travellers will play an active role in contributing to conservation projects around the country.” 

Jo Runciman, managing director of Australian Geographic said: “Australian Geographic Travel will allow us to foster an even deeper relationship with our audience by connecting them with the natural experiences they crave. This is a unique opportunity to not just read about the awes of the great Australian landscape, wildlife and wilderness, but to actually live it.”
