Step Behind the Scenery
Now that you've got a taste for the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walks, check out the following feature video stories from our guests and guides.
If you’ve travelled the world with your hiking boots and ticked off some of the world’s greatest trails, it typically means your expectations hover high. When Australians Lynette and Alan decide to join the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk, the serial hikers found a world-class experience in their own backyard. Yes, they can do the Great Ocean Walk solo but the couple decides comfort is in order.
Never been on a multi-day walk? Apprehensive about roughing it out there in the wilds? Like to walk but also don’t mind being served up a delicious two-course meal at the day’s end rather than something from a can? This is where the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk steps in. This is walking where we take care of everything. Your task - just one foot in front of the other and dreamy thoughts of long-table dining and a comfy bed.
Joining the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk and stepping out on this famed coastline with a guide brings the landscape to life. Tom and our Australian Walking Company guides carry more than just emergency water! They’ve got vast knowledge of the landscape, are well versed in the Indigenous and European history, know their geology, are across the biology of plants and can share a shipwreck yarn like a pro storyteller.
Our Tasmanian Walks
This amazing walk, the only one of its kind in Tasmania, takes in the spectacular beaches, peninsulas and island trails found in national parks along the east coast. Share with us the wonders of Maria Island, Freycinet Peninsula, Schouten Island and the Tasman Peninsula. This walk is supported by the spectacular Lady Eugenie, a 23-metre (75-ft) luxury classic ketch. Superb 3-course dinners are served either aboard Lady Eugenie or in the relaxed surrounds of a barefoot beach dinner under the stars.
Over the course of four days, immerse yourself in one of the most pristine environments that Tasmania has to offer. Walk the soft sandy beaches, explore secluded coves, kayak the Ansons River and enjoy the uncomplicated luxury of our accommodation at the Forester Beach camp and award-winning Bay of Fires Lodge.
Discover the rare beauty and extraordinary diversity of Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Over 6 days, walk the iconic Overland Track following in our guides' highly experienced footsteps.
In the evening, unwind and relax in the comfort of the only private accommodation along the trail. Enjoy a hot shower, sumptuous meals, freshly baked bread, a glass or two of Tasmanian wine and a comfortable bed.
