Bunnik Tours is not just another Australian tour company – it’s a better way of touring. In 2003, Marion Bunnik saw a gap in the Australian tourism market and set about establishing a company that would single-handedly challenge the large multinationals in an industry saturated by mass tourism.
Bunnik’s vision was simple. She wanted to help Australians see the world and she wanted to do it in a way that was more rewarding and more meaningful than her competitors.
The company specialises in small group travel driven by two guiding principles: to prioritise experience and to leave a positive economic and social impact in the places they visit.
Now, 15 years later, the company continues to make waves in the industry by creating holiday experiences that are packed with passion, inspiration and, most of all, fun.

The small group travel experience
Understanding that travel is more about engaging with destinations and cultures, rather than ticking off a list of sights, Bunnik Tours always keeps its group sizes below 20 people. By maintaining this promise, the family-run enterprise is able to deliver a personal and fulfilling travel experience for travellers.
Spanning the globe from Africa to Europe, South America to Asia and Antarctica, their tours capture the essence of each destination and are thoughtfully designed with a balance of organised sightseeing and free time for independent discovery.
With the smaller group sizes, Bunnik Tours’ travellers spend less time waiting for fellow travellers and have more time to enjoy their holiday. They also receive more personal attention and have more time to spend with the tour guides who are able to share more of their wealth of local knowledge.
Small groups are also more flexible. For logistical reasons, large groups must stay at large hotels and eat at touristy restaurants that are able to cater for large numbers of people at the same time. With Bunnik Tours’ small group sizes, travellers have a chance to venture off the beaten track, stay at smaller hotels and experience more intimate restaurants.
Creating a positive impact
Putting the family’s reputation at stake on each and every tour, Bunnik Tours pays attention to the details and delivers on quality and highly customised tour programs. The family aims to share their passion for travel and discovery by building tours that connect people, places and cultures.
Personal connections create lifelong bonds and shared memories that help to break down barriers and develops greater understanding and, best of all, friendships between people from different parts of the world.
The Bunnik family believe that each traveller has a responsibility to protect local communities and natural ecosystems for future generations to enjoy. The company works with Carbon Fund to encourage travellers to offset their holiday-related carbon emissions and also supports a number of local and overseas charities.
By taking steps to minimise environmental impact, Bunnik Tours optimises the continued success of their uniquely Australian enterprise.
