Coronavirus Travel Update

Over the past few months we've been working our way through the unprecedented challenges of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact. At AAT Kings protecting our guests and our communities are our highest priority. As we navigate our way through these unpredictable times, our focus has never strayed from our guests and our extended AAT Kings family. We are committed to your wellbeing.



In light of current government travel restrictions put in place by the Australian & New Zealand Government, we have reached the difficult decision to cease operation of all trips:
