New flexibility for 2021/2022 Australia & New Zealand journeys

We understand that there is some uncertainty with travel at this time. For our 2021/2022 Australia & New Zealand journeys, should we be unable to operate the tour due to government restrictions prior to the date of travel, guests will be provided a full refund of the Botanica journey.

Keeping You Safe

We’ll look after you with strict pre-departure health screenings, industry-leading hygiene practices and enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols. Botanica is an approved COVID Ready business by the Australian Tourism Export Council. This identifies our journeys as operating inline with the NCCC COVIDsafe and other relevant state based guidelines.

Reduced Group Sizes

Our small group offerings align themselves with social distancing as we have fewer guests in communal areas at one time.

Our Health & Safety Protocols on Tour

Botanica always has the safety and wellbeing of guests’ front of mind, and now even more so with the approaching return to travel. And as part of the APT Travel Group, you’re travelling with an Australian company with the most experience, most awards for excellence and most comprehensive domestic travel options.

We have been responding to the changing Covid-19 climate by implementing a number of new measures to elevate our health and hygiene protocols giving travellers assurance they can travel confidently with Botanica. We are taking physical distancing into consideration at all times throughout the journey.  

We are also liaising with our suppliers in all of our destinations to ensure their health and safety protocols are of the highest standard, such as hotel sanitisation, coach cleaning processes and more. Our on tour teams are supported 24/7 by our Melbourne based Botanica operations and service teams.
