Why Choose Perennial Living Tours

We strive to create and deliver premium special interest travel experiences that celebrate the very best that regional New South Wales has to offer. Our small group mid-week tours (8-12 people) are ideal for solo travellers, couples, private groups, and corporates.

Knowledgeable Tour Guides

Our friendly Tour Guides accompany and look after you throughout the tour.  They make sure you are welcomed and that you understand when and where to meet, and what to bring to each activity. They safely transport you to and from all activities and ensure things go smoothly during your stay.

Throughout the tour they will share background facts, stories, and interesting information about the local area.

Our Guides can even pick you up from and drop you back to designated local train stations so you can leave your car behind.

Our Special Interest Tours

Each of our Tours revolve around a special interest or hobby, including Gourmet Food and Wine, Golf, and Birding.  We include a carefully curated selection of local knowledge and activities to ensure our guests enjoy an authentic and fun experience. 

For example, Greg Little and Carla Jackett are local Birding Experts who join our Birding Experiences in the Hunter Valley and Southern Highlands to explain what Birding is while hosting visits to several bird habitats.

Inclusive Tour Price

Our tour price includes accommodation, all meals and activities, most beverages, our friendly Tour Guide, and a complimentary shuttle. Your 25% deposit is fully refundable in the event of Covid-19 or other unforeseen circumstances.
