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.

Walls of Jerusalem Circuit

Visit Tasmania's only true alpine National Park, the Walls of Jerusalem, during this six day full-pack bushwalking expedition showcasing the regions spectacular mountain scenery, pristine wilderness as well as unique flora and fauna. From your initial base camp you will spend two days exploring the surrounding peaks and valleys of the central northern Walls region. There is an option to summit King Davids Peak (1499m), Tasmania's 10th highest, as well as walks up Mt Jerusalem, The Temple and Solomons Throne. The trek continues through remote alpine herb fields and highland lake country, sideling Lake Adelaide, Lake Meston and Junction Lake to name a few. In the southern confines of the National Park we will have the opportunity to summit Mt Ragoona and Cathedral Mountain. These peaks both provide impressive views onto the southern wilderness of the famous Overland Track and the headwaters of the mighty Mersey River and its Never Never region.

traveller reviews

Also want to give a huge pat on the back to Ben and Brendan who were amazing guides. From when I spoke to Ben pre trip about my vegan dietary requirements (I am very grateful to the effort he went to, to accommodate my fussy requests) to the very end, they were magnificent. Ben especially passionate and knowledgeable, Brendan fortunate to have him as his mentor and who Iím sure will be a very good leading Guide himself.

We were so well looked after and given the most wonderful time. I was a camping and trekking virgin and had lots of challenges and am exceedingly grateful for their outstanding expertise. Should also give credit to all of Tax Ex really, the lovely Shelley bussed us to and from, beginning and end and there were no hitches whatsoever. It was perfect.
