Kimberley Tours For Seniors

Do you have a Seniors Card?

Travelling around Australia is not just the domain of young backpackers, in fact the so called ‘grey nomads’ are hitting the road in increasing numbers.  Some are fully equipped with the latest 4WD high-tech vehicle and luxury caravan every conceivable gadget (with all the comforts of home)  to those who prefer a simpler and more affordable style of travelling such as a sedan and campervan, or a tent and camping equipment to get away from it all.

Whatever the style of travel they have invested in or prefer, our experience is that ‘grey nomads’ are on the lookout for a bargain!   Some tour operators recognise the value of the ‘Seniors dollar’ and offer discounted tours for valid Seniors Card holders.

Those offering Seniors discounts accept valid Seniors Cards issued in Australia and some extend the discount to our Kiwi cousins and accept New Zealand Senior Card (Gold Cards) too.  When you are booking a tour, we recommend you check if there is a Seniors’ rate available for Australian or New Zealand Seniors Cardholders  – and make sure you have your valid seniors card to hand when making a booking.

If you don’t have an Australian Seniors Card, and don’t know if you are eligible - each state and territory issues its own “Seniors” card in recognition of the contribution seniors have made and continue to make to our communities and to keep older people active and engaged in the community, by making it more affordable to get out and about.  We suggest you check out the website of your state program for eligibility.

There are a number of popular Kimberley tours offering Seniors’ tour rates.

Some tour operators also offer discounts to Pensioner Concession Card holders – when you make a tour booking, ask if the Pensioner Concession Card is also accepted.
