Great Walks of Australia is a collection of premium guided multi-day walks which explore the country’s varied landscapes from Tasmania’s wilderness, the Outback of the Northern Territory & South Australia, the white sand coastlines of Western Australia and Tasmania, the rainforest hinterland of Queensland, UNESCO world heritage listed landscapes in NSW and Tasmania’s pristine islands, and the mighty Murray River in South Australia. You’ll enjoy plenty of creature comforts, including hot showers and some pampering too, with accommodation in eco-lodges, wilderness camps and luxury retreats. Gourmet meals showcasing regional food and wine are another highlight.

Swim with Whale Sharks

Whale Shark, Ningaloo Reef, WA

Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia is the only place on the planet where large numbers of whale sharks are known to visit so close to land every year from April to July.

They start to arrive in Coral Bay in late February, and then swim into the waters of the Ningaloo Reef in groups (which is very rare – normally they are solitary animals).

There are a number of ways you can experience these beautiful creatures – day tours to snorkel & dive with whale sharks depart daily during the season from both Exmouth and Coral Bay.
