At Great Walks of Australia, we believe we’ve captured Australia’s quintessential walking experiences. Our unique collection of independently owned, guided, multiday walks is designed to actively immerse you in Australia’s most iconic landscapes. Many are a rite of passage, a pilgrimage for travellers young and old, offering the opportunity to explore, on foot, some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes.
Combining the personal experience of walking through nature with the benefits of a professional guide will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of the areas you visit – you’ll hear the stories behind the places you walk in and you’ll also feel safe each step of the way with Great Walks of Australia.
Each operator takes the utmost care to select their guides, as well as maintaining the highest standards of training, safety and equipment. Walking groups are kept small, ensuring personal service. Whatever your ability of fitness, there is a great walk to suit everyone. Terrain varies across the walks so make sure to check out the walk snapshot information or send us a message if you’re not sure. We want you to do the right walk for you – and then of course come back for more. Many of our guests use the Great Walks of Australia collection as their walking bucket list! We love that.
We offer warm and genuine hospitality accompanied by high quality meals and Australian wines*. Our accommodation is primarily exclusive, often remote and includes wilderness safari campsites, purpose built eco-lodges, private villas, glamping tents and historic homesteads. It’s all part of the walker experience. You’ll sleep in comfort on the Great Walks of Australia.
*wines not included on all walks but available for purchase when not
