Global Gypsies is an award-winning Australian touring and 4WD training company operating in the outback & around the globe.
Getting itchy feet? Why not use the downtime to plan a fabulous caravan, camper trailer or camping holiday in Australia? But be sure to take a private half-day towing/reversing course or a full-day group 4WD training course with us BEFORE you go!
Although our courses are suspended for the time being, our office remains open & we'd be happy to answer your questions. We'll be taking training bookings again as soon as life returns to normal... until then stay safe & well!
Drive your own or a hired 4WD and take an exciting, fun, escorted 'tag-along-tour' through the Australian outback.

Augustus and more!
