Our Tours

Fraser Island Self-Guided Inn to Inn Walk

Fraser Island is the world's largest sand island. It consists purely of sand and yet it supports large strands of lush tropical rainforest. You'll see an extraordinary array of buttress-rooted trees, strangler figs, rare primitive cycads and huge satinays.

The sands support more than 40 crystal clear freshwater lakes. Their favourite, Lake McKenzie is rightfully known as the jewel of Fraser Island. Don't forget to pack the swimming gear!

The island also abounds with wildlife. It's a bird lover's paradise with over 240 species recorded in the area. And you may even be lucky enough to spot a full-breed dingo in the wild.

This holiday begins with a cruise over to the island from Hervey Bay, watching for whales, dolphins and sharks en route. From here, your journey on foot encompasses an amazing variety of landscapes. Much of the walking is remote, taking you close to the tranquil beauty of the natural environment and away from the busy tourist routes.

Carnarvon Gorge Group Guided Walk

Carnarvon Gorge is a magnificent outback oasis teeming with wildlife. Carnarvon Creek carves its tortuous route through the spectacular sandstone gorge, its permanent water nurturing stands of cabbage palms and pockets of remnant rainforest with rare king ferns with five metre fronds.

The steep overhanging walls of Carnarvon Gorge house some of the most vivid aboriginal artwork anywhere in the country, with animals, humans, weapons and tools all clearly depicted in rich ochre patterns. You'll walk the length of the gorge, crisscrossing the river on stepping-stones many times. There are also fascinating side gorges for hiking into. Climb into the Amphitheatre and follow Warrumbah Gorge till it narrows to just a metre wide.

Another bonus is to stop at Cania Gorge, a little known and very isolated National Park with eucalypt forest, rugged rock formations and lots of amazing wildlife. It's hard to beat a campfire, so that's what we do at Cania.

Three distinctly different areas make this a holiday with lots of variety. And with two guides looking after you we can offer a range of easier and harder walking options along the way.
