You will meet local Australians and other travellers, be part of our traveller community on and offline. We are continually hunting out and creating our own authentic, off the beaten track, stop-overs and activities that aren’t in the guidebooks or on TripAdvisor. Get the most out of your travels through local guides and Loka’s groundbreaking technology. Our fun and enthusiastic guides get involved with your travel experiences, and our unique technology provides destination info, activity/accommodation booking service, reviews from other travellers and the ability to book yourself on and off the Stray Australia bus/transport.

Smaller group sizes on the East Coast mean it’s easier to meet other travelers, you don’t feed herded around and it allows us to include connections to off the beaten track things which can’t be accessed by individuals traveling on public transport or with mainstream travel companies.
