Explore our new range of local travel experiences.
To most of us, the idea of an adventure has always involved a long-haul flight, passports and visas. But right now we have an opportunity to get out there and explore a little closer to home – the Intrepid way. To support the local communities within Australia who are working to rebuild and recover. And, to experience all the little moments that make travel special – connecting with a stranger, that incredible meal you’ll remember forever or the unexpected interaction that causes you to laugh until you cry – no matter whether you’re two hours or two days from home.

Every Intrepid small group tour has been carefully designed to make sure you have an unforgettable grassroots travel experience, with ultimate itineraries, perfectly sized groups, legendary local leaders and plenty of authentic real life experiences.

Everyone travelling on an Intrepid trip must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of carriage.
All travellers are required to produce:
- Proof of COVID-19 vaccination
- All children aged 5 to 17 years old must provide proof of vaccination (if eligible), proof of recovery or a negative COVID-19 test.
- If you are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, you may apply for an exemption. Exemptions will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. To apply, you must provide a medical certificate from a medical professional.
In all cases, you must be fully inoculated. This means you must receive the full dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine and allow enough time for immunity to take effect. Each COVID-19 vaccine has different dosages and timeframes for inoculation, so please check the relevant medical advice associated with your vaccine.
If you live in Australia, you’ll be well aware that you need more than a pair of thongs, bathers and suncream. Australia’s pretty massive and the landscapes are so diverse. You’ve got the beaches on the East Coast, the dry deserts of the Red Centre, humid rainforests in the north – you get it. But no matter what trip you’re going on, there are a few items we think are essential:
Reusable water bottle
Sunglasses (with UV protection)
Portable power bank
Comfortable, sturdy footwear
Intrepid is committed to making travel widely accessible, regardless of ability or disability. That’s why we do our best to help as many people see the world as possible, regardless of any physical or mental limitations they might have. However, we’re always happy to talk to travellers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them towards the most suitable itinerary for their needs and where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.
