Short on time but want to see as much of Australia’s Southern Capitals as possible – then jump on board with AAT Kings. The variety of tours and the experience of their team make for a very enjoyable experience whichever tour you choose.
I was invited on their 5-day Southern Capitals – which would see us depart Sydney from their departure hotel, The Four Points by Sheraton, Darling Harbour, before winding our way through outback NSW to our first night’s stop in Canberra.
By law, the bus driver for these tours has to stop every couple of hours, so you get to walk and explore smaller towns along the way. Places that you’d probably never stop off at if you were driving yourself. Plus it means that you’re not cooped up in a bus (coach) for hours on end, watching the world fly past. I must admit – even if we were – that the fully air-conditioned coaches are very luxurious with all the necessary amenities.
