TASMANIAN BUSHFIRE AND WALKS UPDATE

Our first Tasmanian trips for 2016 have visited some of the islands unique natural gems!

After some heavy rainfall, the Flinders Island group managed to successfully summit all 3 peaks and trek some cracker coves and coastline. Another intrepid bunch have been enjoying a taste of Tasmanian highland country and today successfully climbed stunning Cradle Mountain, at 1545 meters, Tasmania’s 5th highest peak!

 

Unfortunately, the Walls of Jerusalem National Park remains shut, with fire authorities still assessing the safety of the road and walking track access this week. There are still dozens of bush fires burning across the state with some massive areas now affected in the northwest Tarkine area and peripherally around the Mersey Valley. Luckily the central areas in the Walls of Jerusalem remain unaffected, further highlighting how unique and precious this wilderness is. As soon as the areas are opened, Trek Tours Australia will be assessing the impacts on our Walls of Jerusalem itineraries and we will keep our trekking groups updated.

 

Lastly, we’re excited to have our first South Coast Track Trek of the season depart yesterday. Always an awe inspiring trek along the southern most coastline of Australia – a true never never land of raw beauty!

WHERE WE GO

TRAVELLER’S TALES

Barbara, Heysen Trail May 2015

We had the best time. Cannot overstate how fabulously we were looked after by Brad, Warrick and Ann. Nothing was too much for them and their encouragement at every stage made the trip an amazing experience.
Food was delicious and above expectation, accommodation was great, the route planned very well with a good blend of travel and exercise. They were always accommodating and even us senior members were made to feel that we were no trouble to them.  I thank Warrick for fixing my camel pack.  Sure made the walk more comfortable for me. The whole experience was outstanding. Please pass on my thanks to all. The organization was sensational from the outset.  Your reminders were timely and I thank you for answering all our dumb questions. It was a great experience from the start to the finish.

Meagan on Trip Advisor, Jatbula Trail June 2015

Walked the Jatbula Trail with Trek Tours early June and could not rate the walk nor Trek Tours highly enough. The trail was incredible, reasonably easy walking, several first timers with us, the ever changing landscape and waterholes were unbelievable. Trek Tours can not be faulted. Easy to arrange, everything was planned, guides (Brad and Joel) were both very experienced, full of information, fun and fed us extremely well. Nothing was ever too much trouble and somehow there was still chocolate every night. Will be travelling with Trek Tours again!

Bonnie on Trip Advisor, Larapinta Trail June 2015

I recently went on the 9-day highlights of the Larapinta trek and it exceeded my expectations. Not only was the hiking itself spectacular, but we had a lovely bunch of trekkers and were so well looked after, that at the end of the trip not one of the eight of us could think of any way it could be improved. It was like being in a 5-star hotel, but outdoors in beautiful country – best of both worlds. Our guides Holger and Sean were incredibly caring, well organised and good company. The campsites were beautiful, the food was delicious and healthy and we had really good information on tap on all aspects of the country including geology, birdlife, plants and local aboriginal culture. This is the first time I have done an organised tour and it was certainly worth it. I’d happily do another trip with them.
