Introducing our new range of local experiences.

To most of us, the idea of an adventure has always involved a long-haul flight, passports and visas. But now, while our borders are closed and international travel is on pause, 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 and New Zealand 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.

If a day tour is more your style, then our network of Urban Adventures is just for you!  Imagine a network of local friends in your hometown, or a town near you, people you can call on in any city to show you the local secrets, to take you for cocktails at their favourite watering holes, to cook and share a meal with you in their kitchen. That’s Urban Adventures.
