Who we are

Who we are

At the Australian Walking Company we strive to provide unique high quality guided walks that focus on delivering an exemplary guest experience, whilst continuously reflecting the values of cultural and socially sustainable practices and environmentally responsible operations.  Through slow journeying on foot we provide the opportunity for guest to step out of the every day and embark upon superb journeys into wild land and seacapes.  

We actively care for the places we operate in and endeavour to instil our values of environmental and cultural integrity on our guests and across every level of our company.  Our philosophy of belonging, fostering simplicity, environmental and cultural integrity, passionate leadership, genuine fun and 'wow''-ing our guests, speaks to our commitment to care for both people and the environment.
