Our History

Dunns Bus Service, the Kadina business has been in operation for over 50 years, they purchased it in 1976. For many years a major part of the business was school buses and organised coach tours to all parts of Australia. In the late 80's and early 90's part of the business was operating a general freight service to Birdsville in Outback QLD. As a result of that experience it was decided to concentrate on outback SA, QLD, NSW & NT organised coach package tours.

This has now become a large part of the business travelling in air-conditioned comfort experiencing the privations and beauty of the outback and meeting the characters of the Australian Bush.

Peter & Shirley Dunn of the parent company Dunns Bus Service in Kadina, decided in 1998 to expand their already successful School Bus & Charter & Tour Coach company to incorporate the entire travel market and purchase Dependable Travel Service.

Maxine, Peter & Shirley's daughter has now decided to operate Dependable Travel from her home. She feels she is more able to service her clients in the ever changing business world. Maxine has formed a merger with Cambridge Travel to further enhance her packages and services. Maxine has also begun studying for another University degree.
