How it works


Epic adventure tours for 18 to 35 year olds

Our trip style

Explore New Zealand or Australia with a small group of like-minded travellers in your luxury vehicle stopping at the most breathtaking spots. Discover incredible glaciers, lakes and beaches, get your adrenaline fix and make the memories of a lifetime with your new Wild Kiwi family!


Flash-pack your way around New Zealand and Australia. We have hunted out all the very best spots to give you the most epic small group experience. Sit back and take in all that these places have to offer from the comfort of our new, luxury cruisers.


Who travels with us

Traveling solo? With 65% of our guests traveling on their own, you'll be surrounded by like-minded adventurous souls. Bringing mates? No problem, as everyone has one thing in common - making new friends to experience an awesome adventure with. Alternatively, if you have a large group, we can sort you out with a private departure.


Whatever your adventure thrills threshold, there’s optional activities aplenty for you to choose from. From bungee jumping to swimming with wild dolphins there are plenty of activities along the way. Each tour has a selection of optional once-in-a-lifetime activities at an additional cost and your guide will show you plenty of free activities including beautiful hikes and wildlife spotting.


What’s Included

  • Transport for the duration of the tour (excluding airport transfers)
  • Passionate local driver guide
  • Accommodation for every night of the trip
  • Breakfast provided every morning

Each trip also has unique inclusions relevant to the tour, so check out your itinerary to see which bits we throw in for free!


When you do finally bunk down for the night, the beds will be comfortable, the rooms warm and the linen clean. We stay in hostels and cabins we know and trust and keep the number of guests per room as low as possible to keep it more personal.

Our Vehicles

Our fleet of vehicles will take your road trip to the next level. Kick back in a comfy seats, surf the net via our on-board WiFi and play music through the stereo system. Low battery? Plug your charger into the USB port in your seat.


Our group sizes

Our adventure tours are for small groups of 18-35 year olds. We think small is best, so you’ll never find yourself with more than 18 people. It means you don’t get lost or left out in the chaos of a large group and you really get to know and bond with others on the trip.

Your guide

We don’t hire bus drivers - we hire guides. Our local guides are passionate about New Zealand and Australia and can't wait to show you their backyard. They’ll be your go-to for everything from organising additional activities to teaching you about the local history.

How much does it cost

The trip of a lifetime doesn’t have to blow the budget! Spend a week exploring with your Wild Kiwi family, passionate local guide, luxury transportation, flashpacker accommodation and breakfast every day. Flashpacker travel on a backpacker budget.

Travelling Solo

Your Wild Kiwi tour comes packed with a bevy of mates, and we will make sure you are grouped with sociable, like-minded people. Prepare to have a lot of fun, make new friends and discover the best that New Zealand and Australia have to offer.

Travelling with Friends

Bring a mate or two, we know you’ll make more on this trip! There are plenty of like-minded people to hang out with and you will walk away with friends for life.

Making New Friends

The more personal size of our groups enable the yarns to run free and new friendships to form. So, whether you came solo or with a few mates, you’ll be sure to make some great new friends!

Our travel experiences

Amazing trip! The itinerary is put together well to see all the highlights of the East Coast in two weeks, while still having enough time to indulge in each city’s unique atmosphere.

Frank Plessers

The bus trips were excellent and traveling with a smaller group was far more fun then the larger tour groups. Got to see many things a long the way with plenty of stops. Would definitely recommend this trip. Made family and friends back home very jealous.
