Reviews

Cradle Mountain Huts Walk

"Bliss... If you want to experience the Overland Track and feel like a rock star then get on the Cradle Mountain Huts train. Light packs, great accommodation, fantastic food, Professional with a capital P guides, and a wilderness like none before. Easily one of the top 10 walks on the planet!"

John, Sunshine Coast – Trip Advisor

Seven Peaks Walk

"Best vacation of my life... Lord Howe is like a secret undiscovered paradise. I almost hesitate to review it so the secret doesn't get out. Amazing beaches, fantastic snorkelling, and some tough hiking for those who want to earn the amazing food at Pinetrees… We did not miss our phones or wifi at all! Can't say enough about this place!"

Amy, Idaho, USA – Trip Advisor

Classic Larapinta Trek in Comfort

"Don't hesitate, DO it! I wanted an active holiday with spectacular scenery and I certainly got that! But I also got knowledgeable friendly guides who took care of our every need. Fantastic chefs who took pride in accommodating dietary requirements… I enjoyed the semi perm "camping" accommodation, it was a great setup and comfortable. Take the adventure!"

T. Smith, Victoria – Guest Review

Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk

"Wow! Everything I hoped for and so much more. I travelled on my own, and was not disappointed… The team really cater for everything with a beautiful lodge, warm foot spas to soak our tired feet, spectacular meals... The whole trip was amazing - views are spectacular… If you’re considering 12 Apostles Lodge Hike - book now!"

Kahlee – Guest feedback

The Arkaba Walk

"The walk draws on the amazing nature of the Flinders and Wilpenna - a rolling series of changing landscapes from gums to paper bark to cypress to open grasslands to rockeries of grass trees.... It's good for the soul and the legs…great food and outstanding guiding, culminating in a night at the old homestead… truly a great walk of Australia. Boots on and do it!"

Syzn, Sydney – Trip Advisor

The Maria Island Walk

"Congratulations Maria Island Walk team! You delivered far more than we expected… The walks were stunning, the scenery varied, with treks through forest, beaches, plains and hills. Abundant, almost tame, wild life reminded me of the Galapagos. We saw the cutest wombats (some with babies in pouch), pademelon, wallabies… A top experience, and one we won't forget."

Helena G, Sydney – Trip Advisor

Bay of Fires Lodge Walk

"Trip of a lifetime. Wow wow wow… No one else in coo-eee. Pristine beaches, fascinating scrub/bush, and food/wine/accommodation, all faultless. Total escape from city life and fun… Well worth every $... We had four warm sunny days, kayak was a highlight. Guides are full of knowledge and skill. The swims were beautiful and soothing. The whole four days was an emotional retreat."

Nicstoc – Trip Advisor

Cape to Cape Walk

"Superb accommodation...The private chef dinner was another highlight. But of course the major star of the show was the incredible south west coastline of the Cape to Cape walk. We saw dolphins, whales and the bluest of blue water. We swam at Meerup, walked the Karri forest and enjoyed the mix of terrains along the coastline… Highly recommended!"

Carolyn, Melbourne – Trip Advisor

Freycinet Experience Walk

"I reluctantly divulge this piece of paradise… Wineglass Bay reminds me of the best lakes in Europe except it’s a bay in the sea. The place is heaven - miles of empty beaches, translucent seas, and what great hosts!… the food was exquisite. I’ve traveled around the world and the best place seems to be on my own doorstep. Just do it."

Jeremy, Killara – Trip Advisor

Murray River Walk

"I was enthralled by the landscape, the colours, the bird life, so skillfully pointed out to us by the lead guide…. it was truly wonderful… I highly recommend this walk for the contrasts, the food and the wonderful experience of the Murray River wilderness, with the warm, friendly, knowledgeable guides, who shared their passion for it..."

Madeleine0624, Auckland, NZ – Trip Advisor

Scenic Rim Trail

"What a privilege to hike this track. Walking through mystical World Heritage Listed rainforest - where few people have the opportunity to go. Guides were amazing. Hike was challenging (in a positive and rewarding way). Accommodation five star."

Guest – Scenic Rim Trail

Three Capes Lodge Walk

"Truly superb... The hike varies from easy days to long days but the location, views and serenity is Australia at its best. Meals were 10/10.... The guides were just sensational... From the walk, guiding, pristine nature, amazing accommodation and food, it’s exceptional value for money. It is Australian tourism at its very best... 10/10.”
