Private Group & Family Travel

Private Groups

Private group travel is the ultimate way to see Australia how YOU want. Alter one of our pre-existing itineraries to match your interests and preferred departure date or create a new custom made itinerary completely from scratch. 

Private Group & Family Travel is for travellers who seek cultural experience, group or family bonding adventure, an educational adventure or just plain fun in the great outdoors without having to compete with the interests of travellers who may have different objectives to your own. 

Why go private?

Just for your group
Imagine bringing your favourite people together to create cherished memories by sharing experiences like trekking the Larapinta Trail, embarking on the Jatbula Trail, trekking the Overland Track or exploring Kakadu.  To share a private Australian Walking Holidays experience with just your own group, organise a private departure with our groups consultant. 

Perfect for friends and special-interest groups
Private Departures are ideal for clubs and other groups who share special interests like trekking and travel. Let our experts take care of all the planning and logistics, while you and your group enjoy your private wilderness adventure.
