About Sportsnet® Holidays

It is no secret that Australians have a love of sport and an unrelenting desire to travel abroad to witness the best sport has to offer. This culture turned out to be the driving force behind the creation of the Sportsnet® Holidays brand in August 1998. Right from the start, Sportsnet’s® business plan was simple: make it easy for Australians to attend their favourite sporting events (to “see it live!”), no matter where the event or fixture was being staged in the world. By remaining true to its core business strategy of dedication to excellence, Sportsnet® has grown to become Australia’s leading and largest provider of sports travel experiences. We are proud to say that we have assisted with making the dreams of hundreds of thousands of sports fans come true over our 23-year history.

Join Sportsnet® on our sixth Rugby World Cup tour, where it’s more than just the game, it’s every little experience along the journey.
