Mandy and Steve married as Princess Buttercup and Wesley, aka the Dread Pirate Roberts!

For us at Runaway Max, it is all about getting you, your besties, your buds, work colleagues or fellow cult members together and getting you out into the great unknown and doing something wild! We have done extensive research to find the most adventurous, most thrilling and most delicious activities in and around the Sydney/Gold Coast/Brisbane area.  All of our tough toil and hard yakka has produced some awesome day trips for you, plus hangovers and bulging waistlines for us.

Adventure Tours Dream Team:

Our Owner and Operations Manager, Steve, has been in the Sydney tourism game for over 20 years, and his wealth of experience brings a level of confident professionalism to every tour, with an occasional bout of existential angst.  He also has oodles of experience with Craft Beer, Wine, Pirates and the occasional axe throw. Usually at pirates.  Bastards, the lot of them.

Mandy is our Tours Manager and keeps the engine running and wheels greased in the background.  A whiz on the emails, no question will go unanswered.  She also offers vast experience with High Teas, wine tasting and is keen to swing a sword. Often at random passers-by and bad drivers. And Pirates. Bastards. They always smell of rum.

Our driver/guides are many and varied.  We have a selection of proficient, professional and organised individuals, plus some ex-cons and seriously weird characters who will ensure that your big day out runs smoothly. You will have nothing to think about except wondering just how much danger, romance and adventure you can squeeze out of a single day. A lot, as it turns out.

Awesome Adventures for Awesome People. That’s you, dear reader.
