Our Story

About Us

Blue Bus Tours...going places!

Geoff Jacob has been in the coach tour industry since he was 18. He began working for Mylon Motorways in Wodonga, Victoria as a coach driver and mechanic. He drove express services between Adelaide and Sydney and soon graduated to leading accommodated tours and camping safaris throughout outback Australia. 

He and his wife Sandra travelled the length and breadth of Australia with Swagman Tours taking coach camping safaris up to Cape York, around Tasmania, through the Red Centre, across the Nullarbor and from Perth to Broome. Geoff also drove coaches and tours for Palmwoods Coaches on the Sunshine Coast.

In 2002, we purchased a school bus run on Russell Island in Moreton Bay followed by the school bus run on Macleay Island. Over the next few years we gradually increased our fleet to cater for the increasing numbers of school charters and day tour groups who were wanting our services.

2019 marks the year when we introduce our Blue Bus Tours specialty services. We are excited to launch our luxury tour coach that will allow us to transport our passengers in style and comfort to the special places we hold dear in our hearts – the beauty that is off the beaten track in Australia.

Geoff and Sandra invite you to join us as we travel throughout Australia in 2019 and beyond.
