Unforgettable. Family. Laughter


I went into this trip not knowing what to expect and I’m glad I did it. It was one of the best times in my life! It helps you to grow as a person and you learn to do things you thought you couldn’t. You don’t just make friends for life but family. The bus was home!

I miss the vibes, hi Jake!!

Booze, music, bunch of amazing people from all around the globe and that for weeks in the bush of Australia.
I´m still thinking about that trip more or less every day. Everyone who get the chance to do it should do it.
PLUS Flunkyballtrainingscamp!!!


unique pleasant enriching


My trip on The Magic Bus was an unexpected experience, I really appreciated these weeks driving along the East coast, meeting different people and sharing good moments, as some beautiful evenings by the fireside. Particularly, I like the concept of the Magic Bus, I felt really free and close to the nature at that time. It showed me that, as Jack for the Magic Bus, you can do what you like in life, no matters convention and social commitments.
If you want to join them, do not hesitate, even for a short period, i’m sure you will get something of that experience.


Crazy, intense, beautiful


Seeing the most beautiful places in Australia while you only have to worry about how much goon you have left.. I recommend this to everyone!


Awesome time!!


The best time of my life! I have been around Australia with the magic bus australia for 5 months in total, seen 1000 of beaches, national parks, cities and great parties!!!

The best way to see Oz by far.
Bring an open mind and a box of goon and you will have an unforgettable experience.

Glittery sun adventure


One of the best things I’ve not only done in oz but probably to date. Amazing to experience the west coast in the back to basic style completely how it should be, with 25 people ready to see awesome things and become a travelling community.

I spent my birthday on it, I’ll never forger Glitterball. FAB GURL.


Wild. Bliss. Profound.

The Magic Bus was one of the best trips of my life. I was on the Perth-Melbourne trip a year ago today and half my stories still start with “Yeah, this time on the Bus..”
The perfect way to meet 20+ awesome people and really see Australia; I still talk to and meet up with Bus friends all the time in Europe. If you get a chance to go on the trip with the gentleman that is Jake, do it!
