What To Expect
Guests who join our walks enjoy the wilderness in style, sharing companionship during the day and comfortable accommodation at night.
Joining a Great Walk is a dynamic, intimate and personalised way to experience a walking holiday. Group sizes are small with a maximum of 10 guests and 2 local expert guides.
The accommodation varies across the seven walks with guests staying in huts, lodges, elegant standing camps or tented sites.
Similarly the level of strenuousness varies between walks and details of each walk can be found by visiting their homepages through this website (click on The Great Walks page to quickly compare each walks length and accommodation type).
The guides on the Great Walks are often thought of as their most outstanding asset. Walking independently can be very enjoyable but you can miss out on so much of the “inside information” along the way. Through the guides’ interpretation you can learn about the flora, fauna and local history. And rather than carrying and cooking all your food, what is more relaxing than sitting back at the end of the day while your guides or lodge hosts cook up a 3 course feast which can be enjoyed with a glass of fine Tasmanian wine.
Guides are selected for their warm personalities, enthusiasm for guiding and their passion for Tasmania. Guests often say that the exceptional guides will be one of the strongest memories they will take home from the walk.
