Participation in all guided walks on tour is optional so you can craft your holiday according to your abilities and fitness levels, enjoying a passive or active program.
Virtually all our walking guests have been over 40 yrs, proudly young and active.
We have enjoyed the company of active 77 yr olds participating fully in all tour activities.
Some remote outback conditions and local tours are more conducive to leisure based soft adventures rather than convened walking activities.
Trails vary significantly between tours but are generally selected to be moderate to easy in grade, requiring:
a reasonable level of fitness
quality light weight boots well worn in with ankle support and gripping soles
a day pack only for personal belongings, water and packed lunch provided
and a spirit of adventure
In the conduct of all walks you will be required to comply with the advice, directions and walking code as provided by your walking guide, to ensure the safe and minimal environmental impact of the activity
Unique to Australia are these giant grass trees, which you will witness on our World Heritage Tour

Trails can range in length from 2 to 10 kms (1 to 6 miles) with a few stretching to 16 to 18 kms (10 to 12 miles) on two tours. All tours and walks are scheduled for the most comfortable seasonal conditions.
Duration of walks (conducted at a leisurely pace of about 2 kms or 1 mile / hr average):
Roaming (R) – less than 1 hr.
