South Coast Detour has been conducting group charter rides for discerning customers who want the best trails, back up and service since 1998. We use only the best accommodation and have a purpose-built back up 4WD and trailer with highly-experienced customer-focused staff who provide excellent service.”

“Our South Coast rides cover from two to four days while our legendary Victorian High Country rides from our base camp at Tom Groggin to destinations like Dargo and Buchan are three to five day adventures. Detour also specialised in rides from our base camp at Buckenboura Park near Batemans Bay, NSW. These rides feature the option of brining the kids along because we can offer supervised riding on the property for the kids, while dad hits the trails with the Detour crew.
