Great Walks Of Australia and all of our walk operators stand in solidarity and with compassion for those affected by the recent Australian bushfires. Our hearts go out, with tremendous sadness for the families, communities, wildlife and nature affected. Their loss has been felt by us all.

We are also grateful and fortunate that our walks have not been impacted.

Like many Australians, our walks have made financial donations and participated in other fundraising activities, such as auctioning walks, for local and state charity organisations, to contribute to recovery efforts.

We would like to make special mention of Tasmanian Walking Company, whose charitable fund will be contributing up to $100,000 to support the ongoing response and recovery efforts.

For every new booking in January 2020, they will match dollar for dollar donations and contribute $250 for every booking made. These include the following Great Walks Of Australia: Cradle Mountain Huts Walk, Bay Of Fires Lodge Walk, Three Capes Lodge Walk, and Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk.

If anyone would also like to donate to the bushfires appeal, we can recommend these as a few helping on the frontline:

Bushfire Appeal Victoria
St Vincent De Paul Appeal NSW
Red Cross
Zoos Victoria Appeal
Animal Rescue Collective

If you are preparing for your forthcoming walk, please be assured that all of our walks are remain currently unaffected and significantly distanced from any bushfire activity; the majority of them by hundreds, if not thousands of kilometres.

Further, all of our operators are highly-seasoned and your safety is paramount and our top priority. Should there be the slightest of concern about your walk, the walk operator will be in contact with you immediately to notify you prior to your departure or will advise on your itinerary as needed.

For those traveling to Australia for their Great Walk from international destinations, our friends at Tourism Australia have been working with the State Emergency Services on a great tool to bring you the latest updates on destinations in Australia that may be impacted by various incidents, including bushfires.

Distances in Australia are vast, and the majority of the country remains unaffected, continuing to welcome visitors as normal during our busy summer holiday period.

Updated daily, we recommend our walkers to review this travel alerts page if you are traveling to other destinations in Australia and would like to see the latest activity.

We also encourage you to use the hashtag #holidayherethisyear when travelling to Australia; more than ever, Australia need’s your continued support!

Above all, we look forward to welcoming you on our incredible Great Walks Of Australia, and more than ever, taking quality time to appreciate just how wonderous and precious the natural environment in our beautiful country is.
