Bathurst & District One Day Tours

In November 2015, Bathurst & District One Day Tours became part of The Detour Adventures Group. Detour Adventures is wholly owned by Redpath Pacific Pty Ltd ABN 51 054 880 303

Shortly afterwards, we changed the name to Bathurst Tours replacing Bathurst & District One Day Tours.

We felt that Bathurst Tours better reflects the local services we provide. And while we still travel all over the district, the new name along with new logo and signage is a fresh approach to the same personalised, private small group touring we enjoy providing for you, in the Bathurst region.

Welcome to Bathurst Tours

Under the guidance of Ian Redpath, a locally based Bathurst businessman with a vast depth of knowledge and experience in business, aviation and professional 4WDing, Bathurst Tours aim is to offer a personalised, professional tour for you to enjoy.

Our bus tours operate predominantly in and around the Bathurst area. We also offer charter services such as Sydney airport transfers / cruise terminal transfers, corporate and group functions, private winery tours and tailor made packages as required.

The parent company is a Redpath family owned and operated business that carries full Transport for NSW Bus Operators Accreditation No 38461. We are fully licensed, insured and experienced to operate as a bus company providing charter, long distance and tourism tours for our Guests.

At present, we operate three Toyota Coaster Charter buses (not school buses). These are modern, well presented and maintained 20 x Guest vehicles. We also have a beautiful Mercedes-Benz minibus that carries 7 x Guests in comfort for smaller private and bespoke tours.

We can also provide larger buses on demand with our network of Coach operators in our area.

Detour Adventures

4WDing is a specialised field. There are plenty of operators who offer a bash through the bush type experience. Detour Adventures changes all that with a professional approach to 4WDing. You can experience a day of off-road adventures in the comfort of a new Toyota Land Cruiser 200 series 4WD with spacious seating for 7 adults and air conditioning to every row of seats.

For the adventurous, this fully equipped 4WD is set to go places you’d imagine impossible to tackle.
For the more conservative, you can enjoy a day of adventure touring the national parks and forests in the Blue Mountains, Lithgow, Hartley, Jenolan Caves, Kanangra-Boyd, Kowmung River, Abercrombie River, Sunny Corner, Turon River and everywhere in between.

Detour Adventure's origins date back to 1923, when a family coach tour business offered Guests a great day adventure from Katoomba to Jenolan Caves. The owner was the well-known Katoomba local James Kenneth Cale (known as Ken Cale); Ian Redpath’s grandfather.

With over 30 years of four wheel driving experience, Ian Redpath; your Driver / Guide is licensed under Transport for NSW; has extensive local knowledge of the area, flora and fauna and will help you enjoy a great day out.
