Troll Tours is COVID Safe!

Troll Tours is COVID Safe! COVID Safe businesses and organisations are committed to getting back to work. At the same time, protecting the community and preventing the spread of COVID-19. We are an officially registered COVID Safe business.

COVID Safe businesses and organisations

COVID Safe businesses and organisations have:

  • a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan in place.
  • registered as COVID Safe.
  • COVID Safe businesses and organisations are easily recognised by the blue tick badge displayed on their premises or online. 

However, for some industries it is mandatory to register as COVID Safe under the Public Health Orders. Troll Tours doesn’t have to mandatory register. In the interests of doing the right thing for our customers, we registered voluntarily. For our passengers and all the population of Sydney (and Australia).

COVID-19 Safety Plans

On the NSW Government website, it says, COVID-19 Safety Plans are comprehensive checklists designed by NSW Health and approved by the Chief Health Officer. The plans provide clear directions on how businesses and organisations should fulfil their obligations under Public Health Orders to minimise risk of transmission of COVID-19 on their premises. 

Businesses should review the COVID-19 Safety Plan for their industry to see if completing a plan and registering is compulsory under Public Health Orders. All other businesses are encouraged to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan voluntarily. This is exactly what we have done. We have a COVID-19 Safety Plan registered company. Troll Tours keeps a record of all our passengers. If there happens to be a COVID-19 outbreak somewhere, we can give the government/COVID tracers the details.

So, be assured that Troll Tours is COVID Safe! Your health is in good hands.

Holiday Here This Year – Harley and trike tours

Holiday here This Year. An Australian Tourism campaign. This post is also about Trike and Harley rides, Sydney Australia.
with Troll Tours – Harley and trike tours.

Holiday Here This Year

The Holiday Here This Year campaign encourages Australians to support tourism operators around the country. You can do this by booking and planning a domestic holiday. The ‘Holiday Here This Year’ platform launched in January. It’s the first significant domestic marketing push since 2013 in response to the bushfires.

Get out and explore Australia

But a couple of months after Tourism Australia first asked locals to ‘Holiday Here This Year’, the pandemic’s impact hit. It closed not just international, but domestic borders. Any kind of travel was rendered not only risky, but forbidden.

Australia’s tourism industry is suffering through an incredibly challenging period. Australian businesses needs support more than ever. While international borders remain closed, domestic tourism will lead the recovery.

There’s never been a better – or more important – time to get out and explore Australia. Specifically Sydney (for us). Troll Tours is a company that is based in Sydney NSW, Australia. We have felt the effects of COVID19. Like almost every company and business in the world. Like everyone, it hit us by surprise. The world will never be the same again.

Things are picking up

Things are picking up and in Australia the virus is not doing nearly as much damage as overseas. This is for a few reasons. We are a wonderful island so it is easier to police. Our politicians went in and went hard. Yes, it’s hard for so many people especially those in Victoria. But, we are finally seeing success. The numbers of infection are under control. Slowly the borders between states in Australia are opening up.

Troll Tours is open for business. Things are starting to look up. We are COVID safe (blog coming) so there is no reason to not have some fun. Feel the Freedom!

Father’s Day in Australia – celebrate with a tour!

Father’s Day in Australia and New Zealand is different to the rest of the world.

There is no real reason why!

There is no definitive explanation why Father’s Day is celebrated in Australia and New Zealand on the first Sunday in September, though it is clear that the custom of the September date began in the mid 1930s.

maximise its commercial value

An article in the Western Herald in 1964 said the day was officially designated as the first Sunday in September across the Commonwealth in 1964 and that the date was chosen for commercial reasons to distance it from other celebrations. This is similar to the date selected in Scandinavia, where November was also chosen to maximise its commercial value.

Father’s Day is a celebration that honours the role of fathers and forefathers. It is a modern holiday, though the ancient Romans did have a tradition of honouring fathers, every February, but only those who had deceased.

Celebrate!

One thing is for sure, it is a day to celebrate your relationship with the best males in your life. Whether it be your dad, grandfather, uncle, son or a good friend, it’s day of celebration and remembering how they have had such a positive influence on you and your life.

Father’s Day present

The question is, what do you give your favourite male(s)? How do you show them you love them? Well of course, you can tell them but, if you aren’t good with words a present certainly shows them. Troll Tours provides an experience he won’t forget. Buy a Harley Davidson or trike tour for him and if you are feeling adventurous, go with him. We promise you will both have a fun time. This year in 2020, we have another special offer. This time it is “buy a one hour tour and get half an hour for free”. A saving of $20 per person.

Ring or email us and we can either book a ride with you or email you a Gift Voucher in time for Father’s Day!
