Austrips ... since 1976
A 100% family owned company that specialises in organising tours for the group market.
The business, based in Devonport on the North West coast of Tasmania, has been operating continuously since 1976, and has now grown to become one of the major coach tour wholesalers in Australia.
Austrips owners, Anthony and Susan Spinks have a long family history in the Tasmanian coach industry. Anthony's father and grand father have operated coaches in since the 1930's.
Naturally, Austrips' first love is Tasmania and over the years we have developed a reputation as the Tasmanian experts.
However, due to our care and attention to detail, we are approached by a number of coach companies each year to develop their mainland tours. As a result we have built a strong network of mainland suppliers and have the confidence to develop tour packages for any region in Australia.
Experienced & Passionate
We have developed hundreds of different itineraries to all parts of Australia over the years. Every tour is customised and individual. As a result we have a wide network of accommodation, attractions and experiences.
We are very lucky! Many of our guides have a passion for touring Australia and when their not guiding for us they are out exploring, finding new destinations and developing itineraries. As a result we can offer a truly special product. Please give us a call and we'll discuss your requirements and customise a product that is unique and individual to you!
"It is a pleasure to have spent the day with you as our tour guide, quite unlike any other tour guide. Your relaxed and friendly attitude was like having a relative showing us around the places he knows and is so proud of. You gave us interesting and informative facts about the areas we drove through and not ever sounded like a rehearsed commentary." Alison and Michael Bryant, Oct 2015
"Your passion for your product is to be admired and I wish you nothing but the very best for continued success and growth in your business." Leanne Russell, Colac Travel Service, Sept 2014
"It has been a great pleasure to work with you and many thanks for all your hard work in helping us with our trip to Tasmania. Stuff that I felt worked really well was of course John as our driver/guide and I would use him again like a shot. He was extremely professional but personable." Sue Boland, Operatunity Travel - New Zealand. 2013
What a wonderful and happy trip our group of ABC Reunion Club members had in Tasmania. We were more than satisfied with your new Coach which Anthony drove us in from Devonport to Hobart on Friday, 16 September, 2016 and our return to Devonport on Monday, 19 September, 2016. We enjoyed the many places we stopped off at on the way there and back. Anthony was the perfect host and extremely obliging, and Susan, your organisation of the places we visited was perfect. I have already had a lot of feedback from many of the members and they have all commented on how satisfied they were with the organisation of the trip. - Carol, ABC Reunion Club Sept 2016
Although our main focus is wholesaling tours, from time to time we come across other operators who impress us with their level of service and professionalism and we would like to share our experience with you. Hence, we have developed an eclectic range of tours that we think offer personal service, value for money and unforgettable experiences. These include;
