Australian Geographic acquires 50% in Insight Travel, launches tours

Australian Geographic has acquired 50% of travel company Insight Travel to launch Australian Geographic Travel.

Australian Geographic Travel offers small group tours with 30 itineraries currently available to places such as the MacDonnell Ranges in the Northern Territory, Kangaroo Island in South Australia, and Mungo Outback across both New South Wales and Victoria.

Founder and managing director of Insight Australia Travel Birgit Bourne will head up Australian Geographic Travel.

Bourne said: ” Insight Australia is absolutely delighted to be teaming up with Australian Geographic to extend our strong international presence to also offer small group sustainable Australian experiences to nature and culture lovers from around the globe.

“Australian Geographic Travel will explore and enlighten while respecting and preserving the diversity and beauty of local wildlife, landscapes, culture and people. Our travellers want an experience with purpose and to develop a deep connection with a destination by supporting and respecting its environment. We are committed to sustainable travel and our travellers will play an active role in contributing to conservation projects around the country.”

Managing director of Australian Geographic Jo Runciman added: “Australian Geographic Travel will allow us to foster an even deeper relationship with our audience by connecting them with the natural experiences they crave. This is a unique opportunity to not just read about the awes of the great Australian landscape, wildlife and wilderness, but to actually live it.”
