Kimberley Camping Tours

The Kimberley - 10 day camping

$4,295

A fully guided, pack free 10 day walking & camping tour – 62 kms walking (approx.)

The Kimberley is one of the last Australian frontiers, a place soaked in indigenous culture and pioneering history.  It takes no time at all to feel the spirit of the country, it is said to capture your soul.

It also offers fantastic hiking experiences; whether it be exploring unexpected and spectacular swimming holes or trekking through open eucalypt forests dotted with the iconic and wonderfully shaped boab trees endemic to this region. Each walk is different to the next and offers a new experience.   

The Kimberley is famous for the Gibb River Road.  On this tour you will explore the region, hiking by day and at night under the stars.

We start and end the tour in Kununurra. On tour you are sure to love the breathtaking sights and picturesque scenery of this ancient land. See wallabies, dingoes, kangaroos, crocodiles, lizards and an incredibly diverse bird life.

Your time in the Kimberley allows you to experience the beauty and wonder of the natural environment whilst enjoying sleeping under the starts in comfortable swags and fabulous homestyle meals.

Approx 3-4 hours walking


Depart Kununurra at 6.30am from the Lakeside Resort and 7am from the Kimberley Grande (please be ready to go just before pickup time). We make our way to the northern end of the Purnululu National Park and stop at a Roadhouse for a delicious breakfast. As we travel onwards we arrive to our campsite, and set up our temporary home, before heading to Echidna Chasm for our first walk.

This is a return walk through a narrow chasm with some large boulders to be scrambled over. Visually stunning as you look up between the narrow gap of tall red cliffs to the brilliant blue sky way above. This walk starts almost right away in a dry creek bed and there are lots of rocks to climb over. Before long you are in the gorge and will notice the sides close in dramatically. The rocky path continues as you weave your way through the tight spaces between the rock walls.

Following we return to camp to prepare for dinner. Your guides will watch the sunset timings closely— tonight we head off to a lookout for an (optional) sunset viewing platform.

Meals—Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Cathedral Gorge and the Dome Walk, Purnululu National Park—5.3km – easy to moderate

Approx 2 hours walking

We get up, have breakfast and pack up camp then make our way to the Piccaninny Creek carpark where we prepare for two walks. This morning we have time for an optional scenic flight over the region (guest own expense) though please choose carefully—flight OR the Cathedral Gorge Walk.

Cathedral Gorge— This is where you start to see those typical rock formations the National Park is famous for and you can’t help but be a little excited when you start this walk.

The trail starts heading towards the domes then turns to follow the dry Picaninny creek bed. You are walking on flat but uneven terrain with a mixture of sand and large rock slabs. When the track turns toward the gorge the sides narrow and there is some stair climbing and descending.
Before long you will sight the cathedral. This is a massive natural amphitheatre that is sure to impress. Apart from other walkers, it’s very quiet and cool. We stop for a snack and relax to enjoy the atmosphere.

We then return almost to the start of the trail and head to the domes for a loop walk. Here you will see some Aboriginal rock art and appreciate the age of the environment.

We’re on the road by lunch time and spend the rest of the day travelling to Halls Creek.

Meals—Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Overnight: Halls Creek Caravan Park—Campground

Featuring hot showers and laundry facilities.

DAY THREE
Tunnel Creek and Windjana Gorge 6.5km – easy to moderate Approx 3 hours walking


After breakfast we head off, arriving at Fitzroy Crossing for morning tea and a great time to stretch your legs.

By lunch we arrive at Tunnel Creek, then grab our torches and some shoes that can get wet and make our way to Windjana Gorge National Park - one of the most beautiful gorges in the Kimberley.


We start at Tunnel Creek. The walk starts off right near the cave entrance. There is a small descent down to get to the opening then you will get a view of the large smooth boulders you have to straddle. We then duck down under the low roof to enter the cave.


After carefully choosing our path through the smaller rocks and water we turn our head lamps on and start the trail through the dark section of the cave. It’s relatively flat but there are a lot of wobbly rocks to navigate. There is a sandy section in the middle and then we come across the second roof collapse and see some interesting roots growing right through the cave roof. At the end there is a large pool of water.

Please note there are some parts of this walk where you will get wet and some small sections where you may be required to swim depending on the time of year and water levels.


Not far from Tunnel Creek is our next top at Windjana Gorge. We are sure to see dozens of freshwater crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks of the Lennard River here.


We start by walking through an opening in the rocks that takes us through a small cave like tunnel. We then walk alongside the beautiful limestone cliffs for a bit on flat ground with beautiful eucalypts overhead.


There are no major obstacles to walk over and the path is quite wide in some places. We follow the creek bed for a while and can then pop down onto the sand where to get a good look at some freshwater crocodiles.


The views of the surrounding cliffs are epic and it’s a very pleasant stroll up the creek bed, all the while seeing crocodiles in their natural habitat. The geology here is incredible, some of the best limestone to get a good look at in Australia. An absolutely fascinating place.


We then hop back in the vehicle and travel onwards to our Campground for the night—offering a civilised shower.


Meals—Breakfast, lunch and dinner


Overnight: Bandilgnan (Windjana Gorge) Campground

Annie Creek, Dolerite Gorge, Barkers Pool, Sunset Hill
Approx 3km, 2 hours walking


We start off driving to Mt Hart, then start exploring with a short walk at Annie Creek. Here we admire an im-pressive boab tree being strangled by a fig – a great photo opportunity. Close by is Annie Creek Walk and Waterhole. A short easy walk beside a reed filled creek adorned with ghost gums. Bird watchers will love this spot, particularly the red backed fairy wrens flitting amongst the Pandanus. A small waterhole at the end is just large enough for a swim for those that want to refresh.


We then head to Dolerite Gorge. The walk starts off easy, but soon we follow the creek bed where there are lots of small rocks so you need to watch where you’re walking. Soon we reach the gorge and need to start rock hopping to follow the track.


We come to a nice waterhole suitable for swimming. For those that want to continue exploring we can follow the track markers by continuing the rock and boulder hopping following the creek. We need to cross the creek three times before coming to a section of the gorge where it begins to narrow where you will find another waterhole suitable for swimming.


After Dolerite Gorge we have a short stop at Barker Pools, another lovely birdwatching and swimming spot.


We head back to camp at Mt Hart and have some time to relax this afternoon.


Just before sunset we make the 5 minute drive across the airstrip and up to Sunset Hill. We’ll pull out our chairs, nibbles and drinks and relax whilst watching the country change from yellows and oranges to pinks and purples. A wonderful way to celebrate the day.


Meals—Breakfast, lunch. Dinner at guest own expense at on-site restaurant (pre-order may be required)


Overnight: Mt Hart campground

Bell Gorge & Galvins Gorge
6.5km easy to moderate, Bell Gorge moderate to hard, approx. 3 hours walking


After breakfast we spend most of the day exploring three of the most popular and well-known gorges along the Gibb River Road.


We start with the most challenging walk today - into Bell Gorge, a 2.6km return walk in the King Leopold Range Conservation Park. Most of the walk is quite easy and meanders beside the pretty Bell Creek. Once we get to the Gorge it gets a little more difficult as we cross the creek on slippery rocks, and then scramble down the steep rock wall leading to the water’s edge. Taking it carefully, it is well worth the effort. A waterfall cascades down the U-shaped cliffs into a deep pool perfect for swimming, with large flat rocks alongside that we warm ourselves on after the very refreshing water.


We finish with a walk to Galvins Gorge. About 1.6 km return, this is a lovely place to swim. Afterwards we onward travel via Mt Barnett Road-house and check in to our campground.


Meals—Breakfast, lunch and dinner


Overnight Manning River campground


There is no power here. Facilities include male and female showers and amenities. Hot showers.

Manning Gorge Walk 6km – moderate
Approx 3.5-4 hours walking

Departing Manning River campground after breakfast we prepare for the Manning Gorge Walk. The walk is mostly in open rocky grass and woodlands, so can be sunny and hot.
To access the start of the walk we need to cross Manning River. This is an oasis in itself and a lovey spot for a swim before we embark on the walk. For those that want to keep dry, there is a small boat on a rope pully system that takes us across Manning River to the start of the walk. Please note, you may be required to swim across if the boat is unavailable. For those not wishing to join the group, you can stay back at the campground to relax and enjoy life by the
River.
The moderately graded walk is 2.4 kilometres one way to the first pool. Stay here for a swim and relax or walk further, exploring more pools and rock escarpments. Aboriginal rock art can be found here.
Back to the vehicle we journey to Ellenbrae Station. Here we stop for the famous homemade scones with jam and cream. You’ll love the open air homestead with manicured lawns and gardens – a sanctuary amidst the dirt and dust.
The afternoon is at your leisure, and there is a nearby water-hole if you wish to go for a swim before dinner.
We head onto our camp for the night at Ellenbrae Station and then enjoy sunset down at the Pentecost River. We watch the sunset light up the Cockburn Ranges as they stand sentinel over this magnificent country and beautiful Pentecost River. This is a photographer’s dream and you are guaranteed to take away some postcard perfect shots.
Meals—Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight: We camp tonight at Ellenbrae Station where there are hot showers.

Amalia Gorge 4.9 km, approx. moderate to hard, Approx 4 hrs in-cluding swimming and walking

This morning we head off to Amalia Gorge enroute to our final destination El Questro Station, crossing the Pentecost River Crossing.


This walk is flat at the start and follows the rocky creek bed around and into the gorge. For the first 500 metres we walk over lots of small but unstable rocks, then you start walking into the gorge itself where there are some large sections of rock slabs to climb down. There is quite a bit of rock hopping before we see water. After a small cave we come across the first major waterhole for swimming. It’s a lovely spot and you can see fish swimming around.


The track abruptly heads uphill and alongside a high rocky area with a small cliff. There is a rocky outcrop that you have to squeeze past that brings you close to the edge so care is needed. If you’re unsure you can stay and swim in the pool rather than continuing on. Optional Sunset drive tonight.


Meals—Breakfast, lunch and dinner


Overnight: El Questro campground.


There are two amenities blocks alongside the camping area. We can swim in the river behind the campsites. The best waterhole is the one right behind the restaurant. There is a shop that has some food items if you wish. There are laundry facilities behind the amenities blocks There is mobile reception here (Telstra) at the station but not on the walks.

Accommodation: El Questro Black Cockatoo campground.

Zebedee Springs, and El Questro Trail
6km – easy to moderate—approx 5 hours walking and swimming


We rise early, have breakfast and enjoy a soak in the warm pools of Zebedee Springs. An easy walk through Sand and Livistonia Palms brings us to rejuvenating thermal springs. Truly idyllic, a rich red layered sandstone wall stands guard over the crystal clear pools in which we soak.


Most of this walk is quite flat but it is rocky and uneven underfoot. We wander through some gorgeous vegetation with several types of Pandanus and some very tall Livistona palms.
There are some tricky bits with rocks to climb over for the first half of the walk. We then start to see some bigger pools of water collecting in waterholes and enter a thinner section of the gorge with tall sides rising above you on both sides. This area is very lush and beautiful with gorgeous rainforest species.


We take the group through a rocky section nice and steady and eventually reach the halfway pool. There are some lovely waterfalls here.


The track continues over a large boulder which is possible depending on the fitness level and willingness of the group. Regardless if you push on or stay at the halfway pool it is a sensational walk. Optional scenic flight this afternoon (guest own expense) - Please do not book before 3.30pm.


Meals—Breakfast, lunch and dinner


Overnight: El Questro campground

Champagne Springs

Difficult—4.8km, 5hrs approx. walking


Be prepared as hiking to Champagne Springs is a little different and considered a little bit tricky. The walk is a 4.8km riverside trail is long and filled with broken terrain, particularly in the second half of the hike. Upon reaching the top you’ll be rewarded with cooling pools, lush scenery and a cascading waterfall. The only thing left to do is take the much easier walk back down.


The second half of the trail and the top pools offer little shade.

The afternoon allows time for an optional cruise, optional scenic flight or time to relax. Please consult your guides at the beginning of the trip, as pre-bookings recommended.
All bookings for 3pm onwards are appreciated.


Meals—Breakfast and lunch (dinner own expense at El Questro’s Steakhouse restaurant)


Overnight: El Questro campground

Emma Gorge Walk

5km - easy to moderate Approx 2.5 hour return (walking and swimming)


Our last day of tour we pack up and depart the campground.
Today we make our way onto Emma Gorge and Falls. This is a 5km easy to moderate return walk that takes us into a large crevice cut into the Cockburn Ranges.


The deeper we go into the Gorge, the higher the ochre rich walls rise on either side of us. The trail goes from easy and flat to rock scrambling and creek crossing.


It is worth the effort as we arrive at spectacular Emma; overwhelming in both her beauty and her refreshingly cold water. You can swim across the large water hole to where droplets of water fall from a large overhang creating the illusion of rain.


The colours are breath taking as you look up at the walls of the gorge.


Meals—Breakfast and lunch

Prepare for your walk

If you are joining a Park Trek tour there are a few things to note.

  • Most healthy adult can participate in a Park Trek walking holiday. If you can walk upwards of 15 kilometres or more in a day, carrying a lightweight day pack, you will find our tours totally achievable.
  • While we typically walk on well forged walking tracks, the quality and degree of difficulty can vary greatly. You may find some tracks rocky and lumpy underfoot, soft and sandy, or muddy and slippery.
  • Sometimes there is the need to negotiate obstacles such as fallen trees, sections of scree or steep steps.
  • Ensure you come along with, not only the right footwear, rain gear and clothing, but also the right frame of mind!

What you need to bring

  • Luggage storage is extremely limited on our Kimberley tour so it is essential that you bring a small bag, maximum 15kg (approx 60cm x 30cm x 30cm.). Washing facilities are avaiable at various locations.
  • Guests to bring a sleeping bag and small pillow plus a towel.
  • Clothing for the duration of the trip
  • A comfortable pair of walking shoes (runners or flat-soled shoes will not suffice except as something you can wear after a day’s activity)
  • Toiletries and any personal medication.
  • Walking poles with a telescopic arm (if you are comfortable with using these).
  • Other items relevant to specific trips will be detailed in trip notes sent to you prior to travel.

We are committed to best practice in all environmental aspects of our business, and we seek to identify and minimise all possible environmental risks our business may encounter.

As an Advanced Eco-certified organisation, we understand the impact our activities may have on the environment and the places we visit.

To ensure we preserve the character and beauty of these destinations, we seek to minimize our environmental footprint and are committed to supporting local communities.

Our tours stay in locally owned and operated accommodation, and pursue environmentally and socially responsible partnerships with suppliers committed to sustainable business practices. Where possible, we purchase tour provisions from local businesses to reduce food miles.

Our locally employed guides share their cultural and historical knowledge of tour locations. By employing local experts as guides, we support the local economy and open doors to authentic personal interactions with the local community.

We take pride in providing a safe, social and healthy activity in our wonderful environment with like-minded travellers who enjoy the great outdoors.

We understand that environmental concerns are a shared responsibility, and we encourage all our guests to observe the following principles when on the trail:

  • Leave no trace, and leave everything as you found it. Do not disturb places of historical significance, Aboriginal sites, plants, animals or geological features
  • Take all rubbish with you. Even discarded organic litter such as apple cores or orange skin adds nutrients to the soil which can aid the spread of weeds
  • Show respect and appreciate the local wildlife, flora, fauna and Country
  • Please do not feed native animals, it can damage their health and make them dependent on humans for food
  • Be quiet where possible. This reduces the chance of disturbing wildlife and increases the likelihood of seeing it
  • Don’t stray from the track, even if it is rough or muddy. Walking on the track edges and cutting corners on steep, zigzagging tracks increases erosion and visual scarring
  • Avoid walking on sensitive vegetation by staying on rocks and hard ground wherever possible. Swamp and bog plants, mosses and other soft vegetation are easily destroyed by trampling
  • Only use toothpaste and soap if you are at least 50m from any waterways, to prevent harm to fish and other wildlife
  • Do not damage or remove any native plant species, shells from beaches, coastal areas or inland middens
  • Choose appropriate footwear for the terrain you will encounter. Lightweight hiking boots or shoes should suffice

Park Trek has been granted “Green Travel Leader” status with Ecotourism Australia. We have obtained this status through maintaining our eco-certification for over a decade. Eco Certified Tourism Green Travel Leader

Our Advanced Eco Tourism certification assures travellers that our products are underpinned by a commitment to sustainable practices, and high quality nature-based tourism experiences.

The advanced Eco Tourism Certification Program is a world first, and was developed to address the need to identify ecotourism operators genuinely committed to sustainable practices.

It recognises operators, like Park Trek, who are Australia's leading and most innovative ecotourism providers who are committed to:

  • Operating with minimal environmental impact
  • Providing opportunities to learn about the environment
  • Achieving best practice, using resources wisely
  • Overall, contributing to conserve the environment and help local communities.

Most walkers are familiar with the basics of minimal impact behavior or the ‘Leave-No-Trace’ philosophy. Some the most important points are:

  • Prepare – through regular contacts with park managers we know the regulations and special concerns of the areas we visit.
  • Tread softly – we stay on tracks and board walks whenever possible. When walking off the beaten track we try to stay on hard surface to avoid creating new tracks.
  • Pack in-Pack out – we do not leave anything on the trail. Any rubbish generated by us is always brought back out.
  • Small groups – while walking we limit groups sizes to minimize impact. Larger groups are often split into two parties.
  • Respect wildlife – we do not interfere with animals in anyway, and avoid feeding or touching wildlife. When we encounter wildlife we do our best not to disturb them.
  • Respect hosts and other visitors – we respect the wishes of our hosts, be it Indigenous people, land managers or locals. We respect other visitors we encounter on the trails.

The destinations we visit are often located in remote or rural communities. As visitors we are dependent on the locals to provide us with accommodation and other services.

To support the local economy we use local service providers as much as we can e.g.:

  • Accommodation – when looking for places to stay, we favour locally owned accommodation, and particularly those committed to sustainable environmental practices.
  • Eat and shop local – on each tour we usually spend at least one night out, be it at a small cozy restaurant or at the local pub,  and our guests often pick up locally made goods.
  • Local and indigenous guides – many tours incorporate local guides to help provide expert local knowledge. We often join local tours to learn about bush tucker, indigenous culture or local wildlife.

Many of our tours take place in sensitive protected areas, National Parks and World heritage-listed locations.

Only licensed Tour Operators, like Park Trek, with a proven record of operating according to best practice environmental standards are allowed to operate in such areas.

Each state has its own stringent conditions that tour operators must abide by. Park Trek is proud to be licensed to operate tours in National Parks and protected areas all over Australia.

Our guides undertake specialised training focused on Aboriginal culture and heritage and are certified to lead tours in iconic World Heritage sites such as Kakadu.

The food we serve is healthy, hearty and home style. Our menus are designed to showcase the fabulous regional produce.

Fresh local cheese, yoghurt, fruit, vegetables, fish and meats are used on our tours, supporting local farmers and minimising our food miles.

We don’t offer five-star dining, but our guides take pride in ensuring that all meals are delicious and plentiful, prepared with top quality fresh seasonal ingredients.

Breakfast is typically a continental spread of cereals, stewed fruit, yoghurt, toast and spreads. Coffee and tea are always available at your base accommodation.

Snacks and nibbles –  guests can prepare their own trail mix each morning from the self serve trail mix selection. There will be fresh fruit for the trail, and biscuits or fruit cake for tea breaks.

Lunch can vary from day to day, and typically includes meat, salad, bread and wraps. Some days might include something different like a roasted chicken or a quiche.

Dinner is a casual two-course meal prepared by your guides. The menu changes to take advantage of seasonal produce, and typically includes a classic roast lamb, salmon fillet or Thai chicken. Dessert includes things like maple baked apples, pears in red wine or seasonal fruit.

Dietary requirements – we cater for guest's specific dietary requirements if advised beforehand, and can prepare meals to meet individual needs.

Alcohol – while our tours do not include include alcoholic beverages, guests may bring beer, wine and other drinks along with them. If you are bringing bottled wine, please ensure it is well packed well in your main bag to avoid breakages. There may also be an opportunity to buy local products while on tour.

It is possible different guests on the same trip may have paid different prices. If you like the price you see, your best option is to book it at that time. If you cancel to take advantage of a cheaper price, full cancellation conditions and penalties apply (see clause 6 Cancellation by a Guest).

The most up to date trip pricing is available through our reservations team, and generally on our website, however it is subject to minimum numbers. Where minimum numbers are not met by the balance payment due date, a small group surcharge may be offered to ensure the trip’s operation (see clause 9 Minimum Numbers). The prices quoted cover (and only cover) the following:

  • pick up and return from the collection and return point designated by the Company;
  • transport to the start of the relevant trip experience, including, if applicable, any ferry transfers;
  • twin share accommodation during the trip;
  • food and non-alcoholic beverages on nights catered by our guides;
  • all national parks and reserves entry fees; and
  • qualified personnel for the duration of the trip.

Any other cost is to be borne by you. No price reduction is available for guests who either elect to bring their own food or drink or choose not to avail themselves of the food or drink provided.

Without limitation, the following items are excluded from the pricing:

  • travel insurance (which we recommend);
  • pre and post walk departure travel arrangements, including accommodation and transport to the collection point and from the return point designated by the Company; and
  • any expenses not defined as an inclusion in the pricing, including tips and gratuities, optional excursions and activities, personal clothing, medical expenses, items of a personal nature and emergency evacuations.

While Park Trek will endeavour to honour its pricing, sometimes increases are outside our control. Park Trek reserve the right to amend trip prices at any time. Amendments may be necessary for many reasons including, but not limited to, increases in Award wages or related wages on-costs, increases in the charges from ground operators, exchange rate fluctuations, increased fuel costs, increased airfares, other increased transportation charges, or the need to engage alternative air or ground operators. Any increase in trip prices must be paid prior to the departure date.

You may bring your own alcohol (within reason); however you are responsible for carrying and disposing of its contents (i.e. “Leave No Trace”).  Final approval for any alcohol brought with you will be at the absolute discretion of our guides on the day of departure.

Your guides have absolute authority concerning the consumption of alcohol (including BYO alcohol) by any guest and may prohibit continued consumption of alcohol if guest(s) appear (in the opinion of the guides) drunk or become violent, quarrelsome, disorderly or behave indecently. 

5 - SINGLE SUPPLEMENT

Our standard advertised prices are twin share and are based on two people sharing a room. Single rooms may be available upon payment of an additional single supplement fee. Solo guests are of course welcome on guided trips, and if you wish to share a room, we will try to find a roommate of the same gender. Allocations will be made in the order bookings are received. If there is no one for you to share with, or if you prefer a single room, you must pay the single supplement fee.

6 - CANCELLATION BY A GUEST

If you wish to cancel your booking, you must notify the Company in writing as soon as possible. The date of cancellation is the date the Company receives written notice of the cancellation. Once the Company receives your notice, cancellations and refunds will take effect subject to the following:

For independent guests - if the cancellation is made:

  • more than 60 days prior to the scheduled departure date - you will forfeit your deposit;
  • between 60 and 30 days prior to departure - you will forfeit your deposit and be charged 50% of the full trip cost with the balance refunded to you; or
  • within 30 days of departure, no refund is available.

For bookings via third parties (e.g. Luxury Escapes, TripADeal, agents) - you should refer to your booking agent first to ensure you understand their cancellation policy.

Cancellation by the guest will also take effect if:

  • you fail to arrive at the pre-arranged meeting place at the time stipulated by the Company; or
  • the final balance of the trip booking is not received by the Company as required under clause 3 Payment Terms.

No refund is available once a trip has commenced and, for the avoidance of doubt, if you:

  • voluntarily leave your trip after it has commenced, including (without limitation) for reasons of bereavement, injury or illness; or
  • are directed by the Company to leave or not commence your trip in accordance with these booking terms and conditions.

Please also note that any refunds are processed once a month, around the middle of each calendar month.  Refunds are inclusive of GST but are exclusive of any card surcharge and payment processing fees paid by you where these fees are not reimbursed to the Company by the relevant card, payments service or other service provider.

The Company reserves the right to not provide a refund if you arrive on the day of departure for any trip with inappropriate footwear or attire and are unable to join the trip (please refer to clause 13 Footwear and Attire).

COVID-19 disruptions

The COVID-19 pandemic is a Force Majeure Event. If we must cancel a trip due to a Force Majeure Event, you can choose from the following options based on the payments you have already made:

  • If you have only made a deposit on your booking, you can choose to transfer your deposit to an alternative trip of your choosing, subject to availability. No cancellation fee or penalty will apply. You may be asked to pay a surcharge/price difference where applicable on the full cost of your trip where new pricing applies.
  • If you have paid in full, we will transfer you to a future trip within the same season, subject to availability at no cost. You may be asked to pay a surcharge/price difference where applicable on the full cost of your trip where new pricing applies.
  • Alternatively you can opt to hold your credit with Park Trek until you decide which itinerary you would like to select. You may be asked to pay a surcharge/price difference where applicable on the full cost of your trip where new season pricing applies.

If Park Trek is unable to run the trip due to COVID travel restrictions (i.e. domestic border closures or quarantine periods between states) or if guests can’t travel due to COVID travel restrictions, please refer to the above listed options. Guests can choose the option that best suits them.

Please note that the above COVID-19 impact booking conditions apply to Park Trek tours only, please consult your airline and other travel suppliers about their transfer fees and charges.

We do not refund for any travel restriction associated with COVID-19, and fear of travelling is not a valid COVID related issue, and our normal conditions apply. We may allow you to substitute your tour place with another guest arranged by you. For these and other reasons we strongly recommend that all guests obtain suitable travel insurance prior to their trip.

7 - BOOKING AMENDMENT BY A GUEST

If you wish to change your booking, you must notify the Company in writing as soon as possible. Once the Company receives your notice, the change will take effect subject to the following:

  • one amendment within the same tour season can be made to your original booking (subject to availability), up to 60 days prior to the date of the original scheduled departure, at no cost;
  • if the date change is made within 60 and 30 days prior (no changes are available within 30 days) to the date of the original scheduled departure there is a charge of $250 per person;
  • any subsequent change up to 60 days prior to the date of the new departure will incur a non-refundable fee of $150 per person (or $200 for any further change); or
  • if the date change is to another trip or tour season an additional charge of $100 per person may apply and you may incur additional costs for any difference in pricing and be required to pay those additional costs on the date the change is affected.

We will do our best to change your booking to your preferred date, but it may not always be possible. 

We understand sometimes circumstances may prevent you from joining your trip. For this reason, we strongly recommend that all guests obtain suitable travel insurance prior to their trip.

8 - CANCELLATION BY THE COMPANY

Our business is subject to the forces of nature, and all the uncertainty and unpredictability associated with it. Local conditions may necessitate changes to sightseeing, walking and driving routes, camping and accommodation locations. While every effort will be made to provide the service and experience offered in our brochure, website, or trip notes, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. Under no circumstances will we knowingly put at risk the safety, health or wellbeing of our guests or guides.

If we must change arrangements, we will endeavour to provide substitute arrangements of a similar standard. However, Park Trek is not liable for any itinerary interruptions due to a Force Majeure Event.

In the case of a Force Majeure Event, we may need to cancel a trip on short notice.  In some cases, this can occur after the trip has commenced. Your understanding and flexibility in this regard will be appreciated.

If we need to cancel a trip for any reason before it has commenced, we will provide you with the following options:

  • transferring to a replacement trip that complements your existing travel arrangements (subject to availability) or a to later departure date convenient to both parties;
  • a credit for the full value of the cancelled trip price to be applied with a 15% discount against a future booking that can be used within 24 months; or
  • a full refund of the trip price, other than in the case of a Force Majeure Event.

Where your trip is cancelled by the Company, we will not be liable for any costs associated with travel to and from the designated trip departure pick up point. 

For these and other reasons we strongly recommend that all guests obtain suitable travel insurance prior to their trip.

9 - MINIMUM NUMBERS

Guided group trips require minimum numbers to operate, and this varies from trip to trip. We may elect, at our discretion, to operate trips with small numbers. If numbers are particularly low, we may also elect to operate the trip with just one guide. We also reserve the right to nominate a small group surcharge where a trip has not reached minimum numbers or to cancel the trip. In the case of a trip cancellation owing to small numbers you will be given the option of:

  • transferring to a replacement trip that complements your existing travel arrangements (subject to availability) or a later date convenient to both parties;
  • a credit for the full value of the cancelled trip price to be applied with a 15% discount against a future booking departure that can be used within 24 months; or
  • a full refund of the trip price, other than in the case of a Force Majeure Event.

You will not be entitled to claim any additional amounts or seek any compensation for any injury, loss, expenses or damage or for any loss of time or inconvenience which may result from such cancellation including but not limited to visa, passport and vaccination charges, gear purchases or non-refundable flights and taxes.

10 - TRAVEL INSURANCE

Park Trek strongly recommends that guests take out suitable travel insurance before or at the time of making any deposit or other final payments. When selecting a travel insurance product, please ensure it covers against, at a minimum, any loss associated with personal accidents or injury, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, cancellation for any reason including bereavement, delayed flights, lost luggage and personal effects and events of Force Majeure.

11 - INDEMNITY AND WAIVER OF LIABLITY

All guests must sign and return an indemnity form prior to arrival or on the morning prior to departure of the trip.  This form indemnifies the Company, its officers, directors, employees, servants, agents or consultants or any of them from and against all costs, claims, actions, demands and liability whatsoever and howsoever arising from or in any way connected with the trip (including any transportation to or from the area in which the trip occurs) including such costs, claims, actions, demands or statutory duty or otherwise on the part of the Company, or any of its officers, directors, employees, servants, agents or consultants, and including any liability in respect of or related to your death, personal injury or loss of or damage to any property owned or possessed by you, but excluding any liability in respect of which the Motor Accidents Insurance Board (as applicable) is bound to indemnify the Company, its officers, directors, employees, servants, agents or consultants pursuant to the Motor Accidents (Liabilities and Compensation) Act 1973 of Tasmania (or any equivalent legislation applicable in any other state or territory). By signing the indemnity form, you will also give the Company various acknowledgements including confirmation that you have been informed of the most appropriate form of footwear for the trip you are undertaking, and that travel insurance has been recommended to you by Park Trek. Please note on some tours we engage third party providers to undertake certain activities, in which case those third-party providers may also require our guests to sign a further indemnity prior to undertaking the relevant activity.

12 - EVACUATIONS

In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, we may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the trip.  Where an evacuation is deemed necessary by the Company, the full cost of evacuation will be borne by the guest, including but not limited to helicopter costs, any associated staff wages and ground transportation costs. As Australian legislation may in some circumstances prohibit domestic travel insurance providing any financial reimbursement for ambulance or air ambulance services, we strongly recommend guests:

  • take out specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider; and
  • take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

13 - FOOTWEAR AND ATTIRE

On all trips guests are required (at a minimum) to wear supportive walking shoes or hiking boots with firm treaded soles.  New boots should be worn in prior to the commencement of the trip.  Waterproof or water-resistant boots are recommended. It is otherwise your responsibility to bring suitable clothing for your trip and our suggested packing lists will help in this regard. These recommendations are made in the interests of your safety and giving you the best chance to have the most enjoyable experience possible. Arriving on the day of departure for any trip with inappropriate footwear or attire may result in forfeiting your trip without refund. If you are unsure whether your footwear and attire is suitable for your intended trip, please contact our reservations team for further advice.

14 - HEALTH AND FITNESS REQUIREMENTS

Your safety is our first priority. It is your responsibility to carefully read the Park Trek trip notes and supporting information on our website and ensure you have adequate fitness for the proposed trip. You must be fit enough to walk several days in a row, and several hours per day. The routes our walks take could include rough and uneven tracks, sand, wading through rivers or creeks. challenging ascents and descents, heavy rain, strong winds, and high or low temperatures. Some training and preparation work is generally required prior to departure. The more physically prepared you are the more you will enjoy your trip. We are of course happy to discuss your suitability for our trips over the phone.

15 - PRE-TRIP INFORMATION, MEDICAL FORMS AND DOCTORS’ CERTIFICATES

To ensure maximum safety, comfort and enjoyment on your trip, guests must return to the Park Trek reservations team not later than 30 days prior to your trip’s scheduled departure date all required guest details and information. Guests with a pre-existing medical condition, including allergies, are required to disclose it (and any relevant medical action plans e.g. for asthma, anaphylaxis, epilepsy or diabetes) on their booking form and may be required to supply a doctor’s certificate or complete a confidential medical questionnaire. If you have any doubts or concerns or are 69 years of age or older, we recommend that you consult your General Practitioner (GP) before your trip to obtain a medical certificate confirming that you are in good physical condition and that there are no known ailments or pre-existing medical conditions likely to prevent you from completing your trip. Collecting this information assists us to ensure an enjoyable and trouble-free trip for all parties. A failure to provide the required information may result in a non-refundable cancellation of your trip. The Company reserves the right in its absolute discretion to refuse a guest from participating in a trip on medical or fitness grounds, or to require a medical clearance form signed by a GP to allow a guest to participate in a trip.

16 - DIETARY REQUIREMENTS AND ALLERGIES

Dietary requirements stating whether it is a food allergy, or a lifestyle, ethical or similar choice, must be clearly noted for all guests on the booking form. All allergies (food and non-food) must be listed on the booking form, stating the severity or grade (where known) of the allergy and whether you carry any medication or devices (e.g. EpiPens) for the allergy.  You will be responsible for bringing sufficient medications and devices to treat your allergies if required. We will endeavour to cater to your needs and provide you with a good range of dietary options, but we do operate in remote locations which can be provisioned infrequently and can have limited options to meet specific dietary or allergy requirements. If your dietary requirements and allergies are not disclosed at least 30 days prior to the date of your departure we may be unable to cater to your needs.  Should you need to cancel your trip because you have not disclosed dietary requirements or allergies in a timely manner, standard cancellation fees will apply (refer to clause 6 Cancellation by a Guest).

17 - GUIDE AND GUEST RESPONSIBILITIES

All our trips are group trips and guests need to be conscious of how their actions may impact others. Our guides are experienced and mature people who take their responsibilities seriously. They are responsible for all aspects of the trip including group safety, enjoyment and satisfactory operation of the trip. They have authority to do whatever is necessary to achieve these objectives, including not allowing you to participate in specific walks or other activities for the overall safety and/or interests of the group. You agree to abide with the guides’ decisions and directions.

It is your responsibility to behave sensibly on the trip and to not take risks. You should stay on marked trails or roads and take particular care to ensure you only use mobiles, cameras and other items when it is safe to do so. You acknowledge that you have the appropriate skills necessary to follow directions and you are responsible for your own conduct during the trip and agree to indemnify Park Trek against any consequent liabilities you may incur.

18 - ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY AND CULTURAL RESPECT

Park Trek takes seriously its responsibilities for the groups we guide and the environmental and cultural landscapes within which we operate.  We adhere to and implement minimal environmental impact approaches to every trip and ask for you to consider the cultural requests and values of certain areas. If you should experience Australian Indigenous art sites or cultural sites as part of your trip, we ask you to treat such sites with respect and to not reproduce or publish any media of these sites except with the express permission of the traditional owners themselves. You will generally be briefed about such responsibility’s pre-departure, however prior knowledge and awareness is helpful.

19 - EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY

Guests acknowledge that walking, swimming and other activities in outdoor environments are potentially dangerous activities and guests are undertaking such activities at their own risk. Guests also acknowledge and agree that they undertake such activities, voluntarily and absolutely at their own risk and with a full appreciation of the nature and extent of all risks involved in those activities. Guests acknowledge that the Company is supplying them with recreational services (i.e. services that consist of participating in a sporting activity or a similar leisure time pursuit, or any other activity that involves a significant degree of physical exertion or physical risk and that is undertaken for the purposes of recreation, enjoyment or leisure) for the purposes of applicable laws.

Guests agree to the fullest extent permitted by law to waive all of their legal rights of action against and fully release the Company and its officers, directors, employees, servants, agents or consultants from all liability arising from or connected with their death or personal injury howsoever arising out of or in relation to the participation by them in a walk or other associated activity including without limitation, liability for a negligent or tortuous act or omission, breach of duty, breach of contract or breach of statutory duty on the part of the Company, its officers, directors, employees, servants,  agents or consultants.  This waiver binds all guests and their legal personal representatives.
