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.
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.
