If you’re seeking a retreat that not only reconnects you with nature but also ensures a seamless, enriching experience, then look no further than a walking and wellness experience with Park Trek. Our walking holidays transcend the ordinary.
At the heart of Park Trek’s ethos is sharing the highlights of Australia’s most iconic landscapes and places with our guests through professionally arranged tours that are eco-sensitive and contribute to the local communities where we walk.
Let’s delve into why Park Trek is the premier choice for adventurers seeking a well-organised, enjoyable and sustainable walking holiday that walks the extra mile!
Expertly guided exploration: Where safety meets adventure
Our journeys are led by knowledgeable and accredited guides who aren’t just passionate about the landscapes they traverse but are also equipped with the skills and equipment to keep you safe. Our guides are central to our guest’s experiences which is why we are committed to ensuring fair pay under modern awards in return for the professionalism and dedication that they bring to the trail. With first aid expertise and top-notch safety communication tools, you can trek with peace of mind, knowing that you’re in capable hands.
Our commitment to eco-tourism
For nearly 15 years, Park Trek has proudly held the Advanced Ecotourism Certification from Ecotourism Australia. This accreditation highlights our commitment to sustainable touring practices – from composting and recycling, to collaborating with local partners and accommodation providers who share our commitment to sustainability. We always seek to leave a lighter footprint.
Embracing the “leave no trace” principles, we are committed to leaving our tour destinations as we found them with no adverse environmental impact. Recently, we’ve partnered with Greenfleet to offset our tour vehicle emissions. At Park Trek, eco-friendly exploration isn’t just a goal; it’s our ongoing commitment to preserving the beauty of the natural world for generations to come.
Our commitment to reconciliation
While Australian landscapes and natural wilderness are central to our tours, we are proud and privileged to walk on Country that is home to the oldest continuous culture on earth. We are committed to working with and learning from Aboriginal and Torress Strait Islander communities and we seek to incorporate cultural content and story into our tours sensitively and respectfully. What may seem like little things, like using accepted indigenous place names for places we walk, are in our view important gestures of our commitment to the reconciliation process.
Local accommodations: Supporting the communities where we walk
While some trekking companies make use of private lodges, Park Trek is committed to working with and supporting local communities and providers. We partner with unique local accommodation providers, ensuring your stay is not only comfortable but also contributes to the communities we explore. It’s our way of giving back, building meaningful relationships and fostering sustainable tourism.
