9 Reasons to Travel With Us

Outstanding Itineraries
All of our Australian active adventure provide our travellers with ample opportunities to experience Australia’s diverse landscape, combined with the safety, local knowledge and flexibility necessary to operate quality adventure holidays in Australia’s remote environment

As our client feedback will attest to, there is no better team of leaders than those at Australian Walking Holidays. Their expertise & knowledge is matched only by their friendly nature and their desire to impart everything they know about the Australian landscape to you.

Sustainable trekking is at the core of everything we do, which is why have policies in place to ensure destinations retain their natural character and cultural diversity. Environmental values filter through every aspect of the company, from the minimal impact camping procedures through to the interpretation of environment. The aim is to give you big adventures while we maintain a small footprint!

Your well-being is our first priority. Our guides receive extensive first aid and emergency response training and carry mobile & satellite phones or 2-way radios. Our industry leading risk management procedures and field knowledge mean that you are in safe hands, with 24 hour back up and evacuation procedures in place.

The best available food, warmth and shelter is standard on our active wilderness holidays, with selected character lodgings as well as quality camp craft and equipment. This ensures that you have the most rewarding and memorable experience.

You will be well looked after by our highly trained consultants pre-trip and our experienced & qualified local guides during your adventure, who are focused on helping you get the most out of your holiday from start to finish.

We think small is good; it limits the environmental impact and allows you to forge life-long friendships with like-minded travellers. Feedback from our clients attests to the appeal of the small group dynamic – our clients say it's this that makes it special.


We aim to include as much as possible in the tour price, so that all you need to think about is being in the moment. We include meals & all park fees on our Larapinta Treks. Our inclusions are displayed against each trip in our brochures, on our website and in our trip notes.

While some try to imitate, we’re off exploring your next great memory. From pioneering the first commercial Larapinta Trail trek, and launching our Larapinta semi-permanent campsites in 2014, our focus is always on developing itineraries.
