Sundowners Overland has a network of people across Australia, New Zealand, Russia and the UK. We're a diverse bunch that have one core thing in common: a genuine passion for travel and encouraging others to discover the world.

We believe there's more to work than a job. Working in the travel industry is a chance to constantly grow and learn, not just in your field but about far-off lands with endearing people and fascinating cultures across the globe. When you work with us, you join a dynamic family that is just as happy on the road as they are inspiring others to chase new horizons. 

We're an independent travel company that focuses on overland journeys across Earth's largest continent. These are not mere holidays but iconic routes that can open minds, alter perceptions and even change lives. To deliver on this, and ensure we offer our clients the best product and service, we have to maintain a balance between professional and fun. 

We've been around for over 50 years but we're still a close-knit team. That means ideas for change can come from anywhere, we believe in our people and empower them to achieve not just career development but a fulfilling work-life balance. 

If you feel like this is an environment you would like to explore further, drop a Cover Letter and CV to travel@sundownersoverland.com. We're always looking to hear from fellow wanderlust-fuelled travel professionals that could add value to our core teams:

  • Travel Advisors
  • Bookings Team
  • Product Development
  • Marketing
  • Tour Leaders
