Why Guided Walks

Nothing clears the mind and sparks the senses like spending time in nature. Taking a guided walk with Great Walks of Australia means enjoying the tranquility, beauty and drama of nature with guides who know the land, are committed to your safety and the enjoyment of your experience.

Rough it in Style

The operators of each of our guided walks endeavour to leave you feeling revived and renewed in body and soul by providing some creature comforts to make your journey a comfortable and relaxing one. All meals are provided with the highest quality produce and care from dedicated crew. Most of our walks are lodge based and guests only carry day packs. On some walks your luggage is transferred for you, whilst on some of our Tasmanian walks, you’re only carrying your personal items in your pack as we provide everything else you need. This is luxury guided hiking.

Putting Your Safety first

Guides are trained to put your safety and security first. High-level first aid training, state-of-the-art safety equipment and practiced emergency procedures are all foundations of each Great Walks of Australia member walk operator.

An Experience Like No Other

Travelling with a guide delivers a deeper understanding of the regions you visit. Each member walk takes great care to select guides that will deliver a truly memorable and informative experience with our own uniquely Australian hospitality. Walking groups on these trails are small (10 to 16 maximum), allowing for special friendships with like-minded travellers to form.

With a guide you will travel in the footsteps of ancient people, wander through a timeless world, and connect with the spirit of the land. Ultimately, with the help of your guide, these walks will provide a physical connection with a stunning landscape, but they give you so much more: we help you connect with your soul.
