Born into family with a bus and coach history, Directors James & Gordon Dixon found the development of Down Under Tours was a natural progression of their upbringing.
At Down Under Tours we abide by the motto ‘Our People make the difference’. From our accommodating Driver/Guides and dynamic Marketing personalities working on the front line of our company to our friendly Reservations staff, Operations team and dedicated Administrative people working behind the scenes, it is our people who define our standards of quality and consistency.
Based in Cairns, Down Under Tours has enjoyed significant growth in our eighteen years of operation. The company’s increasing success is reflected in our workforce, which has grown and flourished from 18 in 1990, to 75 in 2013.

Our fleet of 36 modern, luxury vehicles range from 20-seat Toyota Coasters to 53-seater touring coaches, as well as a specialised wheelchair-equipped vehicle.
