The Gold Coast walks we have handpicked including the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk are mostly easily passable and for the most part, the tracks are well graded. There are some opportunities for keen walkers to challenge themselves but in the main, the walks are all moderate, bar the Border Track which is moderate to challenging. This trip operates with two knowledgeable engaging guides so we can offer easier and harder walk options along the way.
Pre and post-tour accommodation: There are many good hotels on the Gold Coast, however, we pick up and drop off at one central accommodation, Calypso Plaza, 99 Griffith Street.. The tour starts at the Calypso at 9.00 am or 9.30 am at Coolangatta airport. We arrive at approximately 1.00 pm back to the Gold Coast.
For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.
We like the late winter/early spring months as there is low humidity and the temperature is usually very pleasant for walking. See the Bureau of Meteorology for information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure proper clothing.
We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.
For all trips that require international travel, you must have purchased travel insurance that also includes medical evacuation coverage.
We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred from our suppliers and in the office. See the FAQ section for more information.
For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.
