How to play

Every player starts their journey in their selected Home City.

Each turn consists of up to four steps:

  • card exchange (optional)
  • travel
  • collect souvenirs
  • pick up two travel cards

The players travel from one destination to another using travel cards (plane, train, ship and 4WD cards), and collect souvenirs in their final destination. Score points for travelling and for collected souvenirs.

If you have drawn a Try Your Luck card from the travel deck, pick up a card from the Try Your Luck deck. Will good luck be on your side today?

If you have drawn a Travel Bug card, toss a Travel Bug coin. Will you get a good Travel Bug or a bad one?

  1. Anna T

    This board game is fun for the whole family as it can be played at different levels of mastery (and gets better with the time). It made our COVID lockdown evenings much more interesting – and we can’t wait to make all of our Travel bug trips real!

  2. Irena A.

    Our family, with boys 5&10 yo, absolutely love playing this board game on weekends. Combination of fun and education tick the box. Kids learned all about Australia: cities, states, flora and fauna! Also, this board game is a great gift idea to bring from Australia to your overseas friends and family.

    I absolutely recomend this game! It is fun for the whole family, there is strategy and a bit of luck involved in it. The souvenir cards you collect during the game are beautiful, and garantee you learn about Australian fauna and flora. It makes you want to travel!!

    Great way to spend time with the family and learn about Australian landmarks and unique flora and fauna. Game is very good quality, durable and compact so it is easy to take it anywhere without worrying about space. Depending on maturity some six year olds may need help from an adult. Also it is the perfect option as a souvenir for anyone who wants to send a unique Australian gift.

    It is a great fun way to learn about Australia. The game is simple to learn and play, is perfect for the entire family. It quickly became one of our favourites. Very well designed and executed. Couldn’t recommend it more! This would be a great Christmas or birthday gift for any child!

    Totally recommended! We spent A LOT of family hours playing this game. Nice gameplay, quality cards and play-field. I also love that it’s locally made and not just designed, such a rare thing these days. Well-done authors! By the way, have you thought of perhaps doing state editions?

      Thank you for your kind words, Evan. Would you be interested more in the versions of the game covering different countries or Australian States and territories?
