Real life travel experiences
Over 30 years of service...
Noonan’s There & Back Travel has been serving Melbourne travellers since 1978.
As an independent, locally owned business, we pride ourselves on providing personalised service which is focused on developing an itinerary that is just right for you rather than simply offering you a package made for someone else. We take the time to understand your needs and tailor an experience to meet those needs.
Plus you have the peace of mind dealing with a licensed travel agent who stands behind the promises we make.
While Noonan’s is proudly independent we are also a member of the Australian Travel Agents Co-operative – one of Australia’s premier travel buying groups. So we have independence and buying power. The best of both worlds really!
Please call us on (03) 9668 4955 or drop in to see us at 461 Neerim Rd, Murrumbeena VIC 3163. We love to talk travel!
We look forward to showing you that new worlds do truly await….
Cheers, Ken Morgan – Owner
Local guide experts
They go beyond the main streets and into the heart of each destination to bring you into their world.
Quality tour package
Perfectly sized to let you feel like you’re exploring a destination independently, but big enough to create a good social vibe.
We're committed to select the best travel company not only for you but also for the world.
The ultimate in-depth itineraries
No one wouldn't love freedom and flexibility as well as the highlights – that’s why we select tours that give you both.
More than a website
As a licensed travel agent we must satisfy rigorous financial and good character checking processes plus complete a full annual audit.
Careful with your money
All client funds are placed into our Trust Account and only when you are ready to confirm your bookings do we transfer funds and pay suppliers. You are always issued with comprehensive documentation including detailed itineraries and receipts for all monies paid.
Stand behind our products
We only deal with reputable wholesalers and suppliers who insist on high quality and excellent service from providers on the ground. This especially means that there is no “dancing with the stars” – 4 star means 4 star.
Our team is well trained, knows the world and is passionate about what they do. Our aim is to provide you with a fantastic travel experience from the time you first make contact with us to the time you arrive home.
Help when you need it most
Recent natural disasters have led to significant disruption to flight schedules and travel plans. If your travel is booked through Noonan’s, we can directly access airline reservations systems and liaise with other suppliers to get your trip back on track rather than you spending hours on the phone or on-line.
An Award Winning Business
Noonan’s has been twice voted Leader Newspapers’ Travel Agency of the Year for Glen Eira and Port Phillip, as well as Jetset Travelworld’s Australian Affiliate Office of the Year and Telstra Business
While we are locally owned and proudly independent, we are also a member of the Australian Travel Agents Co-operative (ATAC). This gives us access to excellent buying power while still maintaining our independence.
The tour covered everything you are likely to want to see on a first visit to China – Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Terracotta Warriors, Summer Garden, the Giant Pandas, Yangtze River and a great deal more. The optional tours were fully disclosed up front. We went to most and they added to the experience. The hotels were very comfortable through to quite plush. The food was fantastic – as expected it was nothing like a Chinese restaurant in Australia. Thank you Noonanstravel for amazing trips.
