8 Km, Coastal, 1-3 hours

This is a wonderful walk along the clifftops and dipping down to the sandy beach. With expansive views of the cliffs, headland and wild Bass Straight oceans are well worth it. All the locals love this walk!

This walk is named after the renowned maritime explorer, George Bass, a man hardly known for walking. In 1797, he set sail from Sydney Cove and encountered this coastline while proving that a stretch of water did separate the mainland from Tasmania. It was a hell of a point to make, given he did it in an open boat only 8.7 metres long. It could be powered by its sails or by 6 to 8 oarsmen. It was a very adventurous journey and replicated in 1997, by a team of sailors from Sydney.

Tasmania, Australia, 72 km, 5-6 Days

The Overland Track located in a World Heritage area is Tasmania’s iconic hike. Start out at the beautiful Dove Lake and marvel at Cradle Mountain with its distinctive rock outcrops towering above. The side trip to climb Cradle Mountain rewards you with spectacular views over the glacially formed alpine lakes, tarns and far off mountains. As you hike south, the dominant dolerite peak of Barn Bluff commands your attention from the surrounding alpine plains.

Magnificent Pandani palms with their dark green spiky leaves flourish like an oasis in the shelter of Waterfall Valley. Enjoy a snack on the sandy beach of Lake Will and even a swim in its icy waters.

Like medieval Japanese paintings, the pencil pines with their ancient trunks and spindly foliage reflect into the tranquil Lake Windemere waters.

The views down to the rugged and remote Mersey River Gorge from Pine Forest Moor provide you with a wonderful sense of being in the wilderness.

The peaks of West Pelion and the very distinctive East Pelion stand like sentinels.
A side trip to Tasmania’s highest peak Mount Ossa (1617 m) can provide 360 degree views across to Frenchman’s Cap and beyond.

The Du Cane Range has some magnificent forests and views. Following the Narcissus River downstream towards Lake St Clair provides great views of The Acropolis and Mt Geryon. When you arrive at Lake St Clair you can either catch the ferry or meander along beside the lake in a beautiful forest.

Start: Dove Lake, Lake St Clair.

Seasons: Spring, Summer and Autumn. Weather conditions can change quickly and snow, hail and rain can occur any time of the year – even summer!

Tasmania, Australia, 48 km, Coastal, 3 Days.

The Tasmanian 3 Capes Track is a cliff hugging hike in the wilds of Tasmania. The amazing, ancient dolerite cliffs of Cape Pillar, Cape Hauy and Cape Raoul drop 300 metres directly to the ocean making them the tallest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere.  This 46km hike is set up as a hut hike and allows only 48 hikers each day. You are required to stop at each hut and stay a night along the way.

You start and finish your journey at the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. The first part of the tour is a  boat cruise where you will explore coves and see the amazing dolerite cliffs from the water as you head to Denmans Cove.  You might be lucky to see migratory whales, dolphins and resident fur seals populations. The hike takes you through Eucalypt woodlands, ferny forests and coastal heaths. At Cape Hauy spot the climbers out on the Totem Pole – a small column of rock that just up from the oceans below.

Australia, 54 km, coastal walk, 3-4 days.

Hike the Prom, one of the best loved hikes in Australia. Following the coast, with turquoise blue beaches, ferny glades, huge granite boulders covered in orange lichens on your way to the southernmost point of the Australian Mainland.  With 53km of good track hiking, this walk has a lot to offer. The campsites are shady, and most are set close to beautiful sandy beaches. For a unique overnight accommodation, spoil yourself at the historic lighthouse which can only be reached by foot. Enjoy the wildlife as you will see wombats, wallabies, possums and a mix of interesting reptiles.

Australia, 135 km, Coastal, 6 to 8 Days.

A wild, uninhabited coast line with majestic forests, cliffs, caves, headlands and rocky formations awaits the Cape to Cape hiker. The white sandy beaches, Karri forests, rocky beach side ledges and thundering surf mean this walk is always fun and interesting! It meanders along the whole length of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, which forms the backbone of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west of Western Australia.  The wildflowers in spring are amazing. You will need to do some preparation as uninhabited means small shops with few supplies.

Australia, 1002km, Mixed country, 2 months approximately

The Bibblumun Track – Ancient old growth karri forests, tingle trees, breathtaking wildflowers and stunning coastal scenery. A long distance hike that passes through small country towns and peaceful forests.  There are well placed shelters (with water tanks) each night and not too many hills!

Tiny birds that sound like bells wake you up each morning. A landscape that meanders along as the mind often does the same on a slow hike. A wonderful place to absorb subtle changes. A journey for the soul not to be missed! Just keep alert to the snakes!

Australia, 231 km, Desert/Outback, 13-18 Days.

The Larapinta Trail, in the heart of Central Australia, runs 223km along the spine of the West MacDonnell Ranges covering some of the most spectacular ranges and gorges within the vast Australian outback desert.

The deep red gorges and cool waterholes offer an oasis for a refreshing swim in a very hot and arid land. On the rugged rocky ridges, formed millions of years ago by the rock layers being pushed on edge, you can see forever – to far off ranges without any sign of human development.

New Zealand, 61 km, Alpine, 4 Days

This is a beautiful valley walk, with a subalpine pass, in superb surroundings along crystal creeks with a backdrop of rocky mountains.
The Caples and Greenstone Valleys are linked by McKellar Saddle, a sub-alpine pass, to make a moderately demanding, 4 day loop tramp with some days averaging 6-7 hours of walking. A reasonable degree of fitness is required. This loop is 61 km with a possible addition of the Routeburn Track.

New Zealand, 60 km, Alpine, 4 Days

The Kepler track is, quite simply, spectacular! Walk along high ridges, covered in tussock grass, and see the planes taking joy flights in the valleys below.

The alpine views across Lake Te Anau to the Murchison Ranges are as stunning as they are expansive.

As you hike through the the ancient, thick, moss covered, Southern Beech forests that flank the high ridges you might expect characters from Lord of the Rings to suddenly start rushing along the path in front of you! The lakes are beautiful and the crystal water of the Waiau River lead to the swing bridge at Rainbow Reach. All of the huts have wonderful views and are a great spots to chat to other trampers.

New Zealand, 53 km, Alpine, 4 Days

The 53.5 km hike starts at Glade Wharf at the head of Lake Te Anau and finishes in Milford Sound at Sandfly Point. Trampers require boat transport to the start of the track from Te Anau Downs to Glade House and at the other end they must take a boat from Sandfly Point to Milford Sound.

The walk itself is well known for being spectacular and traverses rainforests, wetlands, and the alpine MacKinnons pass which sits stride valleys carved by glaciers and exceptional views of Lake Mintaro and the Clinton Canyon along the way. Sutherland falls are well worth the side trip with water thundering over the 580m drop. The final boat trip gives you views of the world famous Milford Sound.
