The strength of Quadrant Australia has been built from the heritage of the company, with ANF Agritours and Agtour Australia merging into the one company bringing together in excess of 50 years combined experience.
Quadrant Australia’s four business divisions:
The name, Quadrant Australia, is derived from the word ‘quad’, linking our four areas of operation, and the word ‘quadrant’ meaning an instrument of navigation.
Our company’s mission is to guide and navigate our clients to their destination, or goals, in effective and beneficial ways. Captain James Cook carried a quadrant on his epic journey of discovery and navigation in 1769.
Quadrant Australia has offices in Armidale and Coffs Harbour, New South Wales and in Brisbane, Queensland. We have a team of specialist staff who will work closely with you and your clients to develop, plan and deliver informative and relevant, cost effective programs.
