About company

Australian Walking Holidays have been created by one of the world’s most experienced trekking and adventure operators, World Expeditions. These exclusive itineraries are based on almost 30 years experience in creating trekking holidays in Australia and around the world. 

We believe travel is about embracing the nature, culture and people of each destination, which is why we strive to create unique and innovative adventures that give travellers an immersive experience in a destination, with minimal impact to the environment.

Each itinerary offers an unbeatable experience of Australia’s greatest wilderness destinations in the most appropriate style for that environment. For example our treks in the arid ranges (Larapinta Trek and Heysen trail) have 4WD vehicle support so you can enjoy walking with just a day-pack. Whereas, in the World Heritage wilderness of South West Tasmania, only a full-pack bushwalking expedition will give you access to the South Coast Track or the Overland Track. In the tropical Top End and the Kimberley and Jatbula Trail, we link together a series of walks exploring the gorges and waterfalls with 4WD transport, canoeing wilderness rivers and scenic flights. Because we are committed to wilderness travel, we also offer a couple of itineraries that involve alternative means of getting about, like white water rafting Tasmania’s Franklin River and sea-kayaking tropical North Queenslands Hinchinbrook Island.

Our groups are small (maximum 8 or 10 people) so as to minimise impact and maximise experience of the wilderness. Our leaders are some of the most experienced in the field and they delight in sharing their local knowledge and insights. Depending on the itinerary you will have one or two guides who will look after you well as you walk in into wilderness areas few other ever see.

Product Mission
We are committed to providing travellers with sustainable, high quality active experience in the remote locations of Australia, utilising the most experienced local guides and best possible equipment.

Social Mission
To operate the company in a way that actively maintains destination’s natural character and cultural diversity for future generations. To continually engage in partnerships with local environmental groups and/or land managers to actively campaign for conservation or promote environmental protection and/or rehabilitation.

Kakadu HIking Tour
Written: Jan 16, 2019 | Event date: June 2018 | Source: tripadvisor.com
This tour was just amazing, the itinary was perfectly put together, the guides were highly knowledgebale and mostly respectful of the local Aboriginal lands, culture and protocols. The food was amazing, and I also love that the group size was kept small, it allowed the group to bond and we are all still friends now and are planning other walks together in the future. The places we visited were almost empty aside from another group or small scattering of people, so it always felt like we had these beautiful places to ourselves. I would recommend anyone wanting to see Kakadu to do it within the group. I'd definitely do it again :)

An Awesome Experience in every way
Written: Jan 12, 2019 | Event date: April 2018 | Source: tripadvisor.com
Every part of this trip was excellent. The pretrip briefing by our excellent and informative guides set the scene for a great week. The organization was faultless - each day's walk was well planned and the pace suited all members. Our 'tent' accommodation was clean, comfortable and well set up. The meals were amazing given we were in the middle of nowhere! I loved the solitude and peace on the various trails.. such amazing country.. We would willingly do it again!

Spectacular walk
Written: Jan 9, 2019 | Event date: May 2018 | Source: tripadvisor.com
Stunning landscapes and great guides! Two highlights are the early morning walk up Mt Sonder for sunrise and the times when the guides let us walk solo (where we couldn’t get lost) so it felt like I had the path to myself alone in the wilderness. Camp life was fun too with plenty of great food and laughs.

Amazing Walk on the Overland Track
Written: Jan 9, 2019 | Event date: January 2019 | Source: tripadvisor.com
This walk was absolutely beautiful! Some parts were more strenuous than others, but our guides looked after us and we could go at our own pace and enjoy the environment to the full. Each evening we were very comfortable in the Cradle Huts with plenty of food & drinks. The guides and fellow hikers were the highlight - fabulous people with very interesting stories to share. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Feeling proud that we have ticked this off the bucket list!

Don’t miss doing this!!!!!
Written: Nov 6, 2018 | Event date: June 2018 | Source: tripadvisor.com
Hands down the best guided walk I’ve ever done!
Pack free, except for your day pack, and staying in the most gorgeous and eco friendly camps every night, this trip was magic.
Each day is different, each day is wonderful. You need to be moderately fit, but even then, at the end of every day, as fit as we all were, we slept like exhausted babies.
Each camp is slightly different, and the guides run around building camp fires, organising hot water for showers, and cooking 2 course dinners.
Accommodation is in 2 man fixed ‘tents’, on swags, but we dragged our swags outside and slept under the incredible stars every night- that was definitely a highlight.
The food is wonderful, the chasms, gorges, passes, extra walks and the must do walk up Mt Sonder in the dark to arrive in time to see the sunrise are all breathtaking.
This trip is worth every cent
Do it now
