As we can’t always use our own coaches (due to destination and scheduling restrictions), we contract 3rd party coach operators who supply our Comfort Plus Coaches. These coaches are top of the range, providing a first class experience that rivals any in the industry. Standard features include reclining seats, pull down blinds or curtains and an onboard restroom. Regardless of who supplies the coaches we travel on we maintain our high level of expectations regarding comfort and class.
Our exclusive range of cruising tours offer a variety of destinations around the globe and are combined with land travel (either by coach or train) to give you the best of both worlds.

Why not take the mammoth journey sailing the entire northern coast of Australia from Perth to Brisbane, or cruise the east coast in style to the Melbourne Cup? Whenever and wherever we are sailing we include outside cabins with a view. You also always have your own Fun Over Fifty hostess onboard as a contact and often enjoy exclusive private Fun Over Fifty shore tours.

Fun Over Fifty is proud to partner with Australia’s national rail carriers. Across the breadth and width of our country we travel on Great Southern Rail’s ‘The Ghan’ and ‘Indian Pacific’. In the Sunshine State we venture on Queensland Rail’s ‘Spirit of the Outback’, ‘Spirit of Queensland’, the Tilt Train as well as the unique outback rail experiences that are ‘The Gulflander’ and ‘The Savannahlander’. In Canada we enjoy a rail journey like no other aboard the ‘Rocky Mountaineer’ – in Gold Leaf service we are afforded breathtaking views of the majestic Rocky Mountains through the train’s glass ceiling. South Africa’s ‘Blue Train’ brings some nostalgia to your touring experience – there’s nothing quite like the old world glamour of travelling by rail.
Often the best way to get somewhere is by air and sometimes the best way to see something is from the air!! At Fun Over Fifty we take to the skies in a variety of small aircraft and helicopters for a bird’s eye view of some of the world’s most iconic natural phenomenon. Here in Australia we witness the unique and rare flooding of Lake Eyre, discover the ancient Bungle Bungles, Carnarvon Gorge, Wilpena Pound and our centrepiece, Uluru. In Canada we enjoy a Summit Helicopter flight over the Rockies, a sightseeing experience of epic proportions! At no additional cost these breathtaking journeys will bring a sense of wonder and awe to your touring experience. You’ll be humbled by nature, and the way you look at our planet just might be forever altered.
