Colin Carpenter: Classic Journeys

Launching a collection of journeys to inspire

Colin Carpenter's  interest in travel began as a teacher at The King’s School in Sydney where he organised and led several expeditions to the Nepalese Himalaya and beyond.

In 1991 Colin founded the youth travel specialist, Antipodeans Abroad. Over the next 23 years he introduced thousands of young Australians to the world’s most exciting destinations - from Mauritius to Morocco, from Ghana to Guatemala, from India to Italy and many more in between. He blazed a trail with an innovative form of youth travel which others emulate today.

Now it’s the adults' turn! In conjunction with The Classic Safari Company, Colin has created Colin Carpenter: Classic Journeys which are small group, escorted trips aimed at curious travellers, fascinated by different cultures, and prepared to explore the back roads to find hidden gems.

The rules of thumb? Fantastic food and wine, top drawer accommodation, active pursuits plus a rich cultural experience, all done with a great group of people to some of the world's exotic destinations....read more
