Sunday Triple Trail Meander Midland WA

Sun 17th October 2021 | Kay W

This was a lovely triple walk. Each one was easy with nice breaks in between to recover if needed. I absolutely loved the last walk and it’s wonderful cascading waterfalls. Meeting at a designated spot in midland and car pooling was a great idea. And the food that was available at the meeting spot was delicious. No need to pre pack your lunch. Yum…..

And as always Jazzy was full of information about the areas we were visiting.

Another Day on Straddie Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island) QLD

Sun 10th October 2021 | Cass D

Great day, but a very long one. Would have loved to had had a longer walk with BYO lunch at Point Lookout rather than lunch at the pub just because of the time it takes with that many people. Overall fabulous day . Girls always pull out the fantastic goodies for afternoon tea which is so lovely.

This was a great walk - beautiful place to walk. Betty is fantastic - there is never any pressure to try and keep up with the group and so I can walk at my own pace - with Betty keeping a close eye out.

The Highlights of The Bibbulmun Track (Ex Perth) WA

Tue 7th September 2021 | Sheila B

Sue was always at hand when we needed her, and the meals were great. Jazz looked after us all day, and I think I got extra attention because I was old, although I think she will agree that I managed OK. And Leonie was just an extra bonus, especially with her i-phone tips.

Flinders Peak - A Tough Summit Flinders Peak Conservation Park QLD

Sat 2nd October 2021 | Chris J

Flinders Peak has been on my bucket list for a few years now and I am so glad that I have finally reached the summit. It is not an easy hike but it is challenging in that it is mostly uphill with a rocky ridge to walk along and many more rocks to climb. I loved it and would do it again. Thanks AW for hosting a great day out. As usual, your guides are welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful.
