Horizons Unlimited Travellers Meeting Queensland – Oct. 3-6, 2014

Meet travellers and see what this long distance travel stuff is all about.

Published on 04.02.2014

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran with wisdom to share or a complete novice hungry for ideas and guidance, it doesn’t matter if you ride a motorcycle, a bicycle, or drive an expedition vehicle…

Horizons Unlimited meetings are for everyone who dreams of adventure along the road less travelled.

Are you a TRAVELLER? Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then come to the Annual Horizons Unlimited Travellers Meeting Queensland event and meet your fellow travellers!


You’ve read about their adventures in the Horizons Unlimited Travellers’ Ezine, now you can meet them in person and ask questions! Travellers at the Horizons Unlimited Travellers Meeting Queensland event will talk about their adventures around the world, from continent hoppers to Round the World travellers.

This is your best opportunity to find out what it takes to get out of the rut, meet travellers and see what this long distance travel stuff is all about. Join us for a great time, lots of opportunity to exchange information, have a chat with those who’ve been there, lived to tell the story, and are planning on going back!
