Wilderness Expeditions

Herberton, Tablelands Area

Wilderness Expeditions offers bushwalking treks and expeditions in Tropical Queensland. They use pack donkeys to carry equipment and supplies. Treks may be themed to retrace the earliest explorers, pioneers or visit rock art sites and ghost towns; and can be overnight or extended to suit your requirements.

Their donkeys enable exploration of remote and rugged areas of Cape York and the Atherton Tablelands of Far North Queensland in comfort. The pack teams carry basic camp furniture and your luggage. Trekkers do not need to carry heavy backpacks. During their walks they encounter wildlife, observe many species of birds and swim in crocodile free wild rivers. The donkeys add a further dimension to your adventure as hardworking, loveable companions

Their treks are an authentic experience of natural travel in the Australian bush and outback.

They continue the traditions of Australian packing methods used by explorers, drovers and miners for hundreds of years. They specialise in finding places little visited by others, so they enjoy their own space.

Wilderness Expeditions' treks have been developed during 12 years of operation. They use good quality, insect proof tents; beds and other camp furniture. Tasty meals are cooked over open fires using authentic camp ovens.
