About Goondiwindi Travel Centre
Goondiwindi Travel Centre was established in 1970 and has traded under only two owners in that time – Peter Harney and Graeme Scheu. Current owner, Graeme Scheu, is a long standing member of the community and has lived in Goondiwindi since 1976.
Graeme enjoyed a wonderful grounding with the time spent in the Pastoral House – Australian Estates in the early years. It is this grounding that has come to serve him well in fully understanding the needs and requirements of all passengers.
In Graeme’s 29 years of trading, Goondiwindi Travel has operated many successful tours. The first was an overseas tour incorporating the Goondiwindi Cricket Team to Singapore. The second was the Goondiwindi Rugby Union team which played and toured the USA. Since those original tours, the concentration has been mainly on racing tours and the flagship tour, the “Melbourne Cup Carnival Racing Tour” led by Clifford Park race caller Pat O’Shea. This tour has grown from 16 passengers in 1991 to now approximately 100 passengers per year. Not all tours are racing tours though and a number of general interest tours to Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and within Australia have also been a great success.
Peruse our Website for the various options of The Spring Racing Carnival Tours available. Bookings are now open and it is advisable to submit your interest early as these tours fill fast, especially the Melbourne Cup Tour.
So if you are in the 30 plus age group and looking forward to the trip of a lifetime, you can be rest assured that one of the Goondiwindi Travel Centre tours will suit. Ask any past passenger and you will get the same answer. After all, repeat passengers are surely the best recommendation you can get.
