Creating a sustainable walking experience, while minimising the impact on the Island environment and its precious ecosystems is our high priority.
From the start the Fraser Island Great Walk company had everything completely organised. My car was locked away in their secure parking area, we met up with the other lucky hikers, and the guides. The 4WD was loaded up and off to the barge for the trip to Fraser Island.
We unpacked at Waiuta Retreat, the comfortable house we called home for our tour, and we’re out for our first hike.
The next few days had us escorted to various amazing hiking trails all over the island, away from the crowds, and with Nigel the guide and super-chef preparing superb lunches, we were able to take in the best of Fraser Island’s natural wonders.
The breakfasts at the house were huge and tasty, and really set us up for a day’s hiking and exploring, and the evening meals had us oohing and aahing at their creativity. And tasty beers and wines too!
Jane and Ash are perfect hosts/guides and Nigel is an amazing chef and guide, we all had a ball exploring the beauty of Fraser Island, and I’d take one of their hiking adventures again in a heartbeat.
