No matter where you travel with Stray, you can expect an incredible trip, designed to allow you to truly experience the best of the country you're travelling in, get to know the people, soak up the scenery and learn about the culture.
When you travel with Stray you will...
Go further off the beaten track
Our mission is to take you further off the beaten track and immerse you in places and experiences that will blow you away.
You'll be learning to speak Te Reo, and enjoying a traditional hangi meal at Lake Aniwhenua, exploring the rainforest in tropical north Queensland and making homemade spring rolls with the locals at our Stray exclusive homestay in Cambodia.
We also make the most of every journey with great stops and inclusions along the way; a walk to a waterfall, checking out an important monument or saying hello to some friendly wildlife.
Visit more National Parks and UNESCO World Heritage Sites
We’ll take you closer to the action!
National Parks and UNSECO World Heritage Sites are our jam and we try to visit as many of these environmental and cultural gems as possible.
Whether it’s exploring an abandoned citadel complex in Vietnam, or heading off on a koala spotting hike in Australia, you’re guaranteed to see more and do more.
Have 'no worries'
Stray is the ‘no stress’ way to get around.
You don’t need to drive, navigate, work out where to go or where to stop. You can just relax as your Guide takes you on an awesome road trip.
Stray Guides are friendly, fun, and have extensive local knowledge of the best things to see and do. If you need advice or support, they’re there to help. You can ask them anything - from where to hop off and what their top 5 must-do's are, to their favourite local beer.
Our customer service team is also only a phone call, email or Facebook message away. We're all here to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime.
Get amongst local culture
Experience the best of what the locals have to offer.
Scoop up sticky rice at the night markets in Asia. Learn to surf with the pros at Spot X in Australia. Get fish and chips for dinner after a day of sand-boarding in New Zealand. Your Stray Guide will make it easy for you to get involved.
Meet awesome people
Meet like-minded travellers and make lifelong friendships.
Stray attracts adventurous people who jump on the bus with an open mind and a burning desire to explore (our secret ingredient for an awesome trip!).
Over 75% of our passengers are travelling on their own, so don't be afraid to jump on the bus solo - you'll make so many new friends in no time!
See Amazing Places
Discover some incredible places you’re unlikely to find in a guidebook, that the average tourist will never see.
These destinations (marked with a heart icon on the maps) are our iconic ‘Strademark’ Places, the places that you won’t forget.
To name a few of our favourite experiences…staying beachfront on Hahei beach, exploring a 7km cave in a motorised canoe in Kong Lor and searching for platypus in Barrington Tops.
