We seek out the most unique, vibrant, eclectic, stimulating, conversational, and rewarding regional experiences with food, wine and nature as the key elements. These exceptional short breaks include 4 star accommodation, exclusive activities, engaging local experts and a dynamic group leader to make sure everything flows perfectly. These mid-week breaks are perfect for friends, couples, and groups looking to share the good life surrounded by Australia’s beautiful and amazing scenery.

What makes Zepher short breaks so unique is that we’ve combined self-drive with guided components – what we call ‘tag along’.

What’s a tag-along tour?

You are part of a small group of private and/or hired vehicles travelling in a small convoy behind an escort vehicle led by an expert guide. You’ll explore some beautiful regional destinations – independently, but not alone. For travellers that don’t own a vehicle we can help you facilitate hiring one or you can travel in the lead vehicle and save yourself the responsibility of organising your own vehicle.

We usually cover a maximum of 300kms per day on sealed roads, with some dirt roads if it is a more scenic route or to get to one of the experiences/venues we’ve included in the itinerary.

Before each tour, we host a virtual Pre-Departure Session with everyone travelling to discuss the itinerary, what to expect, what to bring, how to use the mobile communication app, and answer any questions you may have.
