With this acquisition came several large Eastern States tours and customers that were impressed the high standard of service. The company grew again in 2008 when they purchased Swan Gold Tour's at the time Swan Gold Tours were the largest charter operator in Western Australia.
The final and largest acquisition came in December 2012 with the purchase of the iconic Australian Pinnacle Tours. Today in 2016 the company is now the largest Tourism operator in the state employing in excess of 140 staff and operating a fleet of more than 50 vehicles".
