About us

For the last 23 years we’ve been perfecting Australian walking holidays. We only offer high quality itineraries to destinations we personally love. Our hand picked holidays showcase Australia, the amazing country that we’re lucky to call home.

If You Are Wondering

What Makes Us A Good Choice?

A backstage pass to Australia

As Australians, we know that we live in a lucky country. Where else could you find excellent walking in such a wide variety of environments including tropical rainforests, the remote outback, alpine regions, isolated coastlines, idyllic islands and rugged mountain ranges?

At Auswalk our mission is to create a platform for people to unplug and explore natural landscapes in comfort, with a view to providing guests with an experience that's both memorable and indulges all the senses, but remarkably is still good for you.

You see more on foot

We believe that the best way to really experience an area is to pass through it on foot. Unlike the view obtained through the windows of a bus, a traveller on foot moves at a leisurely pace. There is time to smell the flowers, watch a native bird as it darts amongst the colourful wild flowers, stop and chat with local characters and marvel at natures' majestic landscapes.

We'll take care of everything

Leave the logistics of your holiday to us. We'll organise all the accommodation, meals, transport, etc in advance, saving you time and ensuring that you'll experience the best an area has to offer. We know the best places to stay and which ones to avoid. We know the best walking routes and how to help you discover more of an area that you could on your own.

Excellent value for money

At Auswalk we are committed to providing quality holidays that are excellent value for money, whether the price is high or low. Each trip has been thoroughly researched to ensure that high standards are met and maintained. Our program of regular review and our response to client feedback ensures that you will have a unique, enjoyable and memorable walking holiday.
