From the outback to Tasmania, our members include some of the country’s best-known multi-day guided walking experiences, run by some of Australia’s most reputable and leading operators. Great Walks also counts industry pioneers and trailblazers such as Joan Masterman and Sue Badyari among the company’s co-founders, each having helped develop the walking industry in Australia and standards for excellence in guided walking experiences and eco-tourism.
The group was also one of the first collectives in Tourism Australia’s highly renowned Signature Experiences of Australia program, founded to showcase Australia’s best tourism experiences to the world.
Tourism Australia Managing Director, Phillipa Harrison, has congratulated Great Walks of Australia on its important milestone.
“Australia’s natural beauty attracts a lot of interest from international travellers and is one of our great strengths on the global stage. We have amazing landscapes and landmarks and Great Walks of Australia offers visitors a unique way to experience many of them,” Ms Harrison said.
“We are proud to have Great Walks of Australia as part of the Signature Experiences Program and hope it continues to offer ultimate walking holidays to international travellers well into the future.”
All Great Walks of Australia walks are led by expert guides with a deep understanding of the environment, who help to bring to life the stories, culture, flora, fauna and history of each trail along the way.
Small groups, exclusive, comfortable accommodation and delicious gourmet food and wine, combine with remote locations for the ultimate in multi-day walking adventures.
All Great Walks members hold advanced eco-tourism credentials and are actively involved in the conversation of the lands they walk through.
Great Walks of Australia Executive Officer, Liz O’Rourke, said: “Great Walks members continue to set the bar and deliver exceptional, industry-leading hiking experiences. But more than that, our operators and their teams are all highly passionate about the places they walk, helping to conserve them for the future, and sharing that passion to generate awareness with walkers.”
“It’s such a privilege to take hikers to see places of high conservation value and significance, including Maria Island National Park on The Maria Island Walk, the Riverland Ramsar Wetlands of International Importance on the Murray River Walk, Saltwater Lagoon on Freycinet Experience Walk, Arkaba Station (currently being rewilded) on The Arkaba Walk, as well as UNESCO World Heritage Listed areas like Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park on Cradle Mountain Signature Walk, the ancient Gondwana rainforests on Spicers Scenic Rim Trail and Lord Howe Island on Seven Peaks Walk.”
“These are places and journeys you never forget. That in turn helps the walks to foster a new wave of supporters that want to help protect and conserve them for the future also.”
“Walking has continued to soar in popularity around the world over the past decade, but hit new heights around Covid. People started valuing the simplicity and importance of the basic need of going for a walk and being outside more than ever. They are looking at walking through a different lens now.”
“Ultimately, most of us live busy lives and are often disconnected from nature. Walking is really just a great mode of transport for a nature experience with a whole host of wellbeing benefits, which more and more people are realising. Fundamentally, walks allow people to slow down and spend quality time enjoying the incredibly beautiful and iconic wild places we are lucky to have in Australia, and connect to the land and themselves.
“When you take time to walk the land, you’ll always be deeply rewarded.”
“We look forward to what the next decade brings, while continuing to champion experiencing the country’s landscapes on foot, and showcasing our greatest walks.”
