Our Flexi East Coast package is a flexible 'hop-on', 'hop-off' tour meaning your travel dates and bus journeys can be booked and confirmed in advance or as you travel.
When booking the Ultimate Flexi East Coast package, you can choose whether you would like a set itinerary or whether you'd like to keep your inclusions 'open-dated' and book them in as you travel. This is a great option for those who have a bit longer to travel the East Coast and who want the flexibility of staying longer in certain locations.
We recommend that you read our trip FAQs, with important information about how to book your travel dates. You can also contact us to discuss your travel dates to confirm your arrangements beforehand.
The Flexi itinerary includes your transport to and from each destination, accommodation and activities.
If you are looking for a set trip itinerary, travelling the East Coast of Australia with the same group and tour guide, check out our original Ultimate East Coast Highlights, Ultimate East Coast Explorer and Ultimate East Coast Explorer + Sydney tour, if you are planning on spending some time in Sydney when you first arrive.
