Welcome aboard your Unique Australian Experience with Echidna Travel 4WD holidays.
Based on the Central Coast of NSW Echidna Travel is Australian owned and operated by the Orchard Family. After 30 years in the coach touring and 4WD business and travelling just about every tar sealed road in Australia we thought it time to get off the beaten track and discover some of Australia’s unique areas not accessible by conventional vehicle or touring coach.
During our years of travels, we have met farmers and station owners from all over, we have included in each of our 4WD holiday’s a visit and 2-night stay at an outback cattle or sheep station. Some of these stations have converted shearer’s quarters, beautiful homestead accommodation or donga’s (demountable overnight guest accommodation) each station is different and unique in its own way. And at each destination we will have a comfortable bed, not always your own private facilities, but they are not too far away.
You will travel in our purpose built air-conditioned six-wheel Toyota 4WD vehicle with forward facing reclining, seat belted coach seats.
Our vehicles have been specially designed for the outback and built for the comfort of our passengers.
With 12 passenger seats we limited our tours to a maximum of 10, this allows for extra time to explore this wonderful country of ours and make the most of every area we visit. Our tour vehicles are equipped with portable satellite phone for your safety and peace of mind, as well as P.A. System, first aid kits and off-road equipment.
Our itineraries allow for maximum time to be spent in those areas we have found to be the most appealing to everyone. Our driver-guides are fully-trained in all areas of knowledge and hold current first aid certificates for your peace of mind.
