Travelabout's SOLO TRAVEL CLUB

Travelabout is proud to present our Solo Travellers Club!

With Travelabout, when travelling solo you are never alone.

Over recent years, Travelabout has seen the growing need to provide small group travel for solo travellers. A sad situation where people of no fault of their own become solo travellers for whatever reason... becoming widowed or divorced, having a partner or friends that can’t travel or in many cases, not being interested in travelling where some have previously seen.

The opportunity is now there to travel the world and socialise in a very friendly environment.

The club’s moto is 'travel solo but not alone’, where people can travel in a group and still maintain their privacy and comfort of a single room, or have the opportunity of sharing with another person where both can save the single supplement.


Officially launched in February 2014, Marlene Lester is the sole co-ordinator. Marlene conducts regular monthly meetings, informal meetings, often with guest speakers and no committees! Marlene does put forward suggestions and ideas, however most suggestions come from members in Sydney, regional areas and interstate.

Unlike other clubs, there are no compulsory formal meetings, no committees and no-one dictating where you should go! Members decide where they want to go, ranging from harbour cruises, weekends, interstate holidays, cruises and exciting international destinations.
