Aldinga Tours is owned and operated by Paul and Barbara Burgess. It is run by the owners and staff, operating out of Lake Macquarie, NSW. The Business commenced part time operation in 1990.
Three years later in 1993 Aldinga launched the full time operation with a 5-year goal to be the very best tour operators offering uniquely tailored, quality tours Australia wide. An important part of the plan was to tour without adversely impacting upon Australia's delicate environment.
Each year since 1990 the business has enjoyed controlled expansion.
From day one Aldinga Tours have been committed environmentalists. The only thing removed after any visit is memories. All waste and garbage is shipped out and nothing that will harm the pristine locations is left behind other than footprints.
The first vehicles used were mini 4WD coaches. The Burgess's however wanted the best tour vehicle in Australia so they purchased a Man Coach chassis and contracted Express Coach builders to build a coach to their own specifications. This design was so good it won the prestigious 'Coach of the Year' 1998. This fine 5 star 38-seat coach proved itself and was in constant demand for tours.
Paul and Barbara Burgess and Aldinga Tours have achieved all of their goals and are now recognised Ambassadors to Australian Tourism. Understandably they are proud of the last 10 years of dedicated service to Australian Tourism and their commitment to preserve Australia's delicate natural environment.
Paul and Barbara have 'cracked' the formula - offering the best in safe coach comfort, visiting many historic locations and hidden national treasures throughout Australia.
After five years Paul and Barbara were successful in tracking down and purchasing another 'Coach of the Year' this time it was the winner of the 1996 award. This Mercedes/Denning combination was modified to the stringent requirements of Aldinga Tours. The modifications proved to be equally as successful as its mate.
