Flexible Australian adventures

Stray is like being on a road trip with mates, where you can also stay longer anywhere that you want. We take our time through the travel days and stop for walks, swimming holes, supermarkets, amazing views and wildlife spotting. We visit all of the hot spots as well (e.g. Fraser Island, Great Barrier Reef) but Stray isn’t about reaching the end destination – it’s about the extraordinary experiences along the way. 

What's so special about Stray Australia passes?

• Start your trip up to 12 months after purchase, pass is valid for 12 months once started
• Travel on Stray Australia rail & bus 
• Stray Australia's local trip leaders guide you on all routes
• Meet like-minded travellers from all over the world
• Unique stops: Barrington Tops, River Retreat, Indigenous Camp and Country Campout (a set local cost for accomm, meals & activities will occur)

Authentic travel experiences

Stray Australia works with indigenous and/or off the beaten track communities to develop unique activities for adventurous travellers. You can still access all the must-see sights (e.g. Fraser Island, Great Barrier Reef), but it's Stray's authentic experiences – looking for platypus in a national park, snorkelling in a marine park, chatting to the Jackaroos on a farm, wildlife-spotting with Aborigines in the rainforest - that may well provide you with your best stories.
