McKenzie's Tourist Services is a bus operator in Melbourne, Australia. It operates five routes under contract to Public Transport Victoria. It is a subsidiary of the Dineen Group.

History[edit]

In 1927, Lorry McKenzie commenced operating a service in Healesville after purchasing a Packard car when on a trip to Sydney.[1] McKenzie had this car elongated and began transporting people. They then purchased some smaller buses and continued to operate their service. In September 2006, McKenzie's Tourist Services was sold to the Dineen Group.[1][2]

Fleet[edit]

As at July 2022, the fleet consisted of 55 buses and coaches.[3]
