There is no shortage of coach tours of Australia. This country has so many beautiful places to explore and travelling via coach is a great way to see the sights. There are many advantages to touring with a coach tour operator, they allow you to travel in comfort, there is no need to prepare a vehicle and they often know the best spots to visit. When considering booking a coach tour of Australia one decision that often has to be made is whether to choose a camping or motel accommodated trip. There are advantages to both, depending on the type of experience you wish to have.
There is something quite magical about sitting under the stars, near a camp fire sharing stories from the road. Camping tours are about simplicity, comradery and hidden gems. One of the great benefits of camping is that you can stay in some of the most remote locations on offer. There are many locations within national parks or the outback that don’t have accommodation available. Spend a night camped by a river within Kakadu National Park or on the beach in Queensland’s most Northern Point, Cape York – camping allows you access to some special spots. When the coach rolls into camp for the night, everyone on tour pitches in to set up camp. This team effort creates a special level of comradery amongst campers. Standing side by side when helping wash dishes as the end of dinner, or helping a fellow passenger set up their tent for the night, these moments build friendships that last long after a tour is over.
For some people, having their own space to retreat to after a long day of touring is vital. The benefits of motel coach tours are; comfort, convenience and access. For some tourists, the idea of camping is not appealing, whether that is due to personal preference or health requirements. Access to amenities is very important for some travellers; and knowing your room has an ensuite bathroom may provide you with peace of mind. Another of the benefits of motel accommodation is personal comfort, with a motel room providing an increased level of weather protection and warmth. Additionally some travellers enjoy a little space to relax and unwind at the end of a day of touring, motel accommodation is perfect for adding a little extra privacy to your trip – especially if you opt for a single supplement. Or perhaps you are healthy enough to travel on a coach tour, but a previous injury makes lowering yourself onto a camp stretcher bed at the end of each night difficult – with motel accommodation, you have the comfort of your own single or double bed each night.
