THE title of the trip, Happy Wanderers, says it all.
This outback and coast adventure is designed specifically for seniors who want to see the spectacular sights of Queensland while enjoying some good company.
Co-ordinator Bob Green has had plenty of experience organising the trips from Ipswich over 13 years.
Happy Wanderers have contributed about $70,000 to the Ipswich Hospital children's Sunshine Ward in that time.
Funds are spent on play and specialist equipment for the ward.
The trip takes in the Kuranda Falls, two outback train journeys, the Chillagoe Caves, the Undara Lava Tubes, Karumba, Winton, Longreach and Blackall.
Mr Green said 16 seats remained on the 40-seater luxury coach, so intending travellers had better be quick to snap them up.
"I've got six people coming from Perth - they heard about the trip from a seniors' magazine," he said.
"We're going to Lake Placid outside Cairns, staying for three nights in cabins.
"All the rest of the way, we'll be in comfortable tents. People bring their own air mattresses and stretchers."
Phill Smith has booked in for his second year with Happy Wanderers.
"We had a great time," he said. "You've got to have a holiday.
"It's well organised, the food's pretty good and you meet different people from all over the place."
Mr Green said entertainment would include a fancy dress night at Chillagoe and karaoke.
His late wife Judy was a driving force behind the fundraising bus trips and support of the children's ward until she died from cancer in 2006.
This year's trip will run for 21 days from May 1 to 21.
It will run through Roma, Mitchell, Barcaldine, Cloncurry, Normanton, Townsville, Charters Towers, Clermont and Emerald.
The itinerary includes a guided tour of Blair Athol coal mine, "Christmas" dinner at Mount Surprise and a fish dinner in Karumba.
