is a licensed travel agent located in the Snowy Mountains region of Australia. With over 16 years experience as a school group specialist we share our experience and passion for travel, which has earned us a reputation for creating life-changing experiences through our innovative itineraries and the highest standards of service.

We provide a complete itinerary planning service for educational school excursions, tours and school camps both domestically and internationally.

Our History

Away We Go Tours was founded in 2003, established by our Manager, Karen Peters. Karen’s combination of personality, experience and skills saw the business boom. Originally starting with only Karen in the office and a few of schools, Away We Go Tours has grown into an amazing travel empire.. a one stop travel shop! Away We Go Tours now see’s over 200 schools travel each year, along with International Excursions, Family Holidays and Group Tours.

As the business has grown, now employing 10 staff members, Karen has successfully been able to transfer her industry knowledge and experience to the growing team, so that Away We Go Tours continues to provide thoroughly organised, individually tailored travel advice to all of our valued clients.

A message from Karen

It seems only yesterday that I began Away We Go Tours with only a handful of schools traveling in the first year. We are justifiably proud of the over 250 clients who now regularly travel with us. 

Over the last 16 years we have grown and developed offering expanded services, to destinations in Australia and all over the world.

Thank you to all our regular clients. It really is a pleasure planning, implementing, and seeing peoples travel dreams come to fruition. All the staff at Away We Go Tours enjoy receiving the wonderful testimonies from our clients, who we have not only helped with their travel plans, but have exceeded their trip expectations. It is this testimony that drives us to continue our commitment to continually refine and improve our services, further enhancing each and every clients travel experience.

Kind Regards,

Karen Peters
