about GUS the BUS

‘Gus’ was designed and built for the sole purpose of comfortably accommodating 8 guests with everything needed to make adventure packed and hassle free road trips in Australia.

Equipped with bunk beds, kitchen, fridge/freezer, flushing toilet, hot shower, BBQ, solar power and 800 litres of water it makes for the perfect adventure vehicle. With the added bonus of an 8 seat four wheel drive that gets towed behind, this is one serious rig!

Gus is fully set up for living off the grid with all waste being caught in tanks allowing us to free camp in the most remote locations and enjoy the starry outback night skies without leaving a trace.

The bus has heaps of equipment on board like surf boards, skate boards, stand up paddle boards, snorkels, fishing gear and more which you are welcome to use for free………. AT YOUR OWN RISK! Unfortunately in todays society providing insurance for these is near impossible and ridiculous so you’ll need to take responsibility for yourselves.

an all-in-one travel experience.

Enjoy the comfort of sleeping in a bed – not a tent. Take hot showers. Cook in a kitchen if you want. Refrigerate your food. Charge your phones and laptops and cameras. In this hostel on wheels, you can do it all.

meet JOE, your travel partner

The owner and driver Joe came up with the idea of a travelling hostel as a way to sustainably travel, whilst being able to meet and share the experience with other backpackers from all over the world.

Joe is originally from England where he worked as an outdoor instructor and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in adventure sports and the natural environment. He came to Australia as a backpacker in 2011 and spent 2 years working and travelling around this vast country before flying onto New Zealand which is where he bought an old school bus and spent 3 months converting it into a travelling hostel.

After an amazing experience exploring New Zealand with countless travel mates, Joe sold the bus and returned to Australia to do the same thing.

Since returning to Western Australia in 2015, Joe and the new bus ‘Gus’ have been road tripping throughout Australia with hundreds of different travellers seeking out the ultimate experiences and finding the most breath taking free camps along the way.

meet ARMAND, your travel partner

Armand and Joe met in 2017 when Armand joined him on a trip from Broome to Exmouth. Armand enjoyed it so much that he ended up traveling with Joe all over Western Australia and then all the way to Melbourne.

He’s now joined the Road 2 Adventure team as the driver of the second bus.

Armand is originally from France where he was a physiotherapist. He has been living in New Caledonia, Australia and New Zealand since 2011.

He’s an adventurous guy always keen for any kind of outdoor activities (specially hiking). He is always looking for new sights to see along the road and the most beautiful campsite views.
