Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

The Walls of Jerusalem Experience

Discover a mountain landscape, only accessible by foot, carved by glaciers and named with biblical drama on our exclusive walk in Tasmania's only true alpine National Park. On this walk, we use a comfortable base camp near the entrance to the Walls of Jerusalem peaks, allowing for delightful day walks with light packs into the heart of this most spectacular of Tasmanian mountain regions. On the first day you will make the short hike into the base camp, where you can leave your main packs for two days of exploration inside the 'Walls'. You'll have the chance to climb King David's Peak and Mt Jerusalem, from where views stretch across much of Tasmania, or venture to remote outer regions such as Golden Gate or Zion Vale. Each day, you'll return to the base camp, which is situated near a cluster of alpine tarns known as Solomons Jewels. Tents are pitched on wooden platforms, and your guides will prepare gourmet camp meals served with a wilderness view. Utilising the base camps, this trip is an ideal introduction to remote wilderness walking, providing a simple and rewarding camping experience. For a real alpine experience join one of our midwinter snow shoe expeditions.

traveller reviews

I loved my trip. the guides were both very helpful from the first day what we needed to have, sorting and packing our packs through to the last day enjoying our ride back into Launceston and resorting our gear. I was not expecting to be camping in the snow, so it was a bonus for me. Every day our guides told us what to expect and involved us on decisions of where we would walk the next day. When the weather turned bad they gave us the option to leave or stay and provided us with information in order to make informed decisions. I would definitely travel with them again, i felt safe and knew I was in capable hands while camping in the snowy mountains.
