Description

Auswalk is the pioneer of walking holidays in Australia. On their tours you will walk through national parks, progressing from one accommodation to the next. Your luggage is moved ahead while you walk. You can choose to go with a guide or try a fully supported "self-guided" walking holiday. You walk without a guide, following the comprehensive Walk Notes supplied and yes, they move your luggage.

... more

Auswalk take care of everything so that you are free from the grind of organisation, leaving you to devote all your time and energies to thoroughly enjoying every aspect of the walking holiday. There's something for all levels of fitness. You will return home relaxed and revitalised in body, mind and spirit. Of course your safety is of upmost importance.

They have tours where you can choose your own the departure date, have own vehicle and guide and have a flexible itinerary.

Where else can you stand on top of a mountain and look over hundreds of kilometres of wilderness on a walking holiday tour, or have a pristine beach to yourself?

At Auswalk they know that the only way to truly experience a country is on foot.

Other Information

Children:
Children are welcome on self guided walks provided they are able to walk considerable distances. Not suitable for small children. Children need to be over 10 years of age.

Further Details:
A guided trip is for those who enjoy the camaraderie of a group, want to meet other like-minded walkers or prefer to walk with a knowledgeable guide. Come with a friend or come alone - you'll soon make new friends.
The rainforest walking in the Daintree and Mission Beach is easy and includes boardwalks, sandy beaches and foot tracks. The opportunity to stretch out comes on the Atherton Tablelands and Dunk Island - the harder options will be quite challenging, with easier walks being offered as well. For those choosing to do the easier options, this is probably one of their easiest walking holidays - great for beginners. Those seeking challenges won't be disappointed though with longer, quite hard walks on offer too.

You should be in reasonable shape, but there's certainly no need to be a triathlete! Full day walks generally involve a total of four to seven hours on the track at a moderate pace and on some days they will do two or three shorter walks.
There are two guides on the Tropical Hiker trip. Auswalk Walking Holidays have designed this itinerary so that nearly every day, one guide can offer a faster, longer or harder walk, while the other guides people on the standard itinerary. So, most people should find options that suit their fitness level.

Springbrook Rainforest

The Gold Coast Hinterland Walk includes fantastic hiking in the Lamington and Springbrook National Parks, located inland from the Gold Coast. The Gold Coast is about one hour south of Brisbane.

On this trip you walk from one accommodation to the next while they move your luggage ahead for you. You will walk independently without a guide, using their marked maps and easy-to-follow Walk Notes. You need to form your own group of two or more people and can choose your own starting date.

This is a World Heritage Area where new plants are being found, classified and named even today. Massive strangler figs, ancient Antarctic beech, red cedar, rosewood and booyongs tower overhead whilst hundreds of different species of palms, vines, ferns and orchids flourish beneath.

Carnarvon Gorge Group Guided Walk

Crossing the river at Carnarvon Gorge

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.

Fraser Island Self-Guided Inn to Inn Walk

ATDW_Large_Landscape__9138272_BB57_Beach_walking_from_KFBR.JPG

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.
