Australian Globetrotters: This is Where You Can Ride

In the spotlight

The world is slowly – at its own pace, stage by stage – reopening for globetrotters near and far. This article is dedicated to all of our Australian-based globetrotters as we navigate the recent state border openings. I wanted to give you a concise and to-the-point list of rides available to you in the next four months, based on your home state.

*Please note, the availability listed for these rides is correct at the time of writing, but will change as more bookings are made. Up-to-date availability is listed on the individual ride pages.
** This list is based on current information from state governments and health advisories as of November 8th, 2020. We will do our best to keep it updated, but it is important to check with the relevant authorities before making travel plans.
