What We Offer

More than Kangaroos offers a service to the independent traveller who is also ‘time poor’. More than Kangaroos is not a travel agent and provides a research and itinerary design service on a fee for service basis to people who lack the time to do the required research and/or are not sufficiently familiar with Australia to be able to identify the best niche experiences.

Our service caters for people who wish to be independent, avoid the group tours and experience the landscape and culture of Australia. We design itineraries for trips of a minimum length of 10 days and a maximum of 8 weeks.

So why use More than Kangaroos?

Firstly, we get to know who you are and what interests you. Your budget, the time you have available for your holiday, your accommodation preferences and the type of activities you enjoy are just a few of the many factors we will take into account. We get to know you by asking you to fill out a detailed questionnaire about yourself, your travelling companions and what you wish to do and see in Australia. See Getting Started.

Then we thoroughly research and design a trip based on what you tell us in the questionnaire. We go beyond just internet research. We do not just give you options from mainstream sites such as Trivago or booking.com. You could do this yourself. We use our own knowledge of Australia to find the best experiences for you by trying and reviewing ourselves, as well as constantly keeping an eye on current trends and changes in the industry.

On receipt of your completed questionnaire, More than Kangaroos will charge a fee to design a detailed itinerary that will be sent to you for approval. The itinerary design will incur a set fee regardless of whether you go ahead with the trip or not. The fee structure is based on 3 levels of service – your choice. See Pricing. Prices for accommodation and activities will be correct at the time of designing the itinerary. You should book soon after that as you will be aware that prices and conditions change constantly.
