Kangaroo Island Walk April 2017

April 2017

'Kangaroo Island was THE GREAT ESCAPE from the rat race. Staying up at the lighthouse in heritage listed houses was a step back in time. No internet, phones, tv, wifi ... just  sitting and conversing with like minded people was quite refreshing;  connecting with each other one on one with no interruptions of any kind.  The island is absolutely beautiful with the most gorgeous sunsets that photos do not do justice have to be there to experience them in all their glory.  It was great to connect with nature on such an intimate level. '

Fraser Island Walk

April 2017

'I am not a regular walker but maintain my fitness. Fraser Island walk is very achievable for novices like myself, with options to go further if your the hard core walker.  A beautiful island with scenery that is breathtaking.  At the end destination of some of our walks an amazing freshwater lake surrounded by white sand to cool off. I would highly recommend this tour. '

'The Great Ocean Walk holiday was a great introduction to singles tours and walking holidays. Being in a small group with people of a similar age enabled everyone to get to know each other. Would most definitely look at another walking holiday in the future.'
