A family-owned company since its auspicious conception in the 1920s, APT had its beginnings which Bill McGeary built a bus body on a tray truck after a tram strike affected the city of Melbourne. Through Bill’s son, Geoff, APT pioneered Australia’s dynamic travel industry in the 1960s and 70s via a diverse range of modes. Such innovation continues to thrive within the APT Group today, now a multi-brand business with an extensive global portfolio of touring and cruising products still owned and controlled by the McGeary family.
The APT Group recently embarked on a program of international growth, with the objective of positioning the company as a truly global tour and cruise operator and one of the world’s leading travel companies. In doing so, the company has embraced an efficient, goal-oriented business that nurtures and develops a culture of exceptional performance.
