Take an adventure holiday in AUSTRALIA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.
Australia is a wild land, where extremes of climate and terrain ensure that much of the continent has changed little since the Aboriginal Dreamtime. It is still possible to travel for days across the outback without seeing another person. Amongst this vast wilderness are ancient mountain ranges, magnificent gorges and waterfalls and Aboriginal communities with deep and abiding links between culture and country.
Great Walks of Australia - Our pioneering developments of the new Larapinta semi permanent campsites has lifted the Larapinta Trail to a level of the world class standards of the Great Walks of Australia. Not only is World Expeditions the operator of the Larapinta, we are also the only trekking tour operator to offer all seven of the Great Walks.
Australia Adventure Travel
The traveller can experience this wild country in many different ways, from a supported Larapinta Trail trek and Heysen Trail trek in the desert mountain ranges, canoeing tropical rivers on a Kakadu canoeing trip, seakayaking Tropical Queensland amongst the reefs and rainforests, bushwalking the sub-alpine wilderness on our Cradle Mountain walk or trekking amongst the forests and coastlines on the Bibbulmun Track and Cape to Cape Track of South Western Australia.
For over two decades World Expeditions has been exploring the wild country of Australia and the Pacific. Our itineraries have always been at the ‘cutting edge’ of adventure, ever since we first rafted the Franklin River in 1978. Our innovative treks, kayak and rafting expeditions are unique, travelling to the heart of the wilderness, far beyond the tourist trails. Many of our itineraries are activity-based and spend time in remote locations. World Expeditions is dedicated to a complete wilderness experience. We do not rush, but take the time to let the country work its magic.
The Larapinta Trail is one of the finest walks in Australia. Walking the high ridgelines of the West MacDonnell Ranges we gain a rare perspective of vast flood plains, the razorback rocky outcrops and sheer scale of this ancient land. World Expeditions operates three separate adventures along the trail. The Larapinta End To End (14 day trek), The Larapinta Trek (6 day trek) and Larapinta Experience (3 day trek). Choose any one of these adventures for an unequalled outback trekking experience.
Australia is the sixth largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States of America and Brazil. The mainland of Australia is the largest island in the world and is also the flattest continent on Earth. The Australian federation (Commonwealth of Australia) consists of six States and two Territories. The largest State, Western Australia, is about the same size as Western Europe yet has a population of only 2million people. Australia has some of the best adventure destinations in the world. Consider the deserts of the red centre, the wilderness and wildness of Tasmania, the tropics of Queensland, and the remote Kimberley.
