If there are two things that Australia’s are best at, it’s drinking their coffee and travelling.

Australia is ranked 42nd in the world for coffee consumption at 3 kilogram per capita, according to a report from World Atlas in 2017.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics also reported that Australians broke the country’s record in 2012 with 8.2 million or 31 out of 100 residents leaving Australia to travel.

So, when Brisbane locals Callum Whitehead and Matt Tainton opened the Barrow & Bear Travel + Coffee in June 2017, they made dreams come true for a lot of Australians.

Barrow & Bear Travel + Coffee is a fusion between a travel agency and a coffee shop in one place. Guests can plan their travels abroad with Callum over a delicious coffee or sumptuous meal without having to go to any other restaurants.

“Had a great “Catch-up” lunch with the girls. Staff were very friendly, in particular, Matt and the food was delicious with a comfortable atmosphere and WOW – they also organise Travel. Very helpful holiday guy “Callum” is now helping us girls with a cruise that we want to take next March. We are definitely going to book with Callum as he offered us so many great deals and a lot of do’s and don’t’s to make this trip more enjoyable. Thanks Barrow & Bear, us girls will be back.” – Lara Reeve, Trip Advisor
