Prices. Most of the 2017 prices listed on this website have not been updated. Many of our costs have risen so many of the prices will have to rise. Anyone booking and paying a deposit before a price rise is announced
- will lock in the old price on any trip where we use our own transport.
- will lock in a price midway between the old and new prices on any trip where we use charter transport.
Credit cards. Our bank has changed the rules. We can no longer accept credit cards.
How to Book
For information about how to book, see our updated How to Book page. This has links to all the necessary forms including our advance purchase and other discounts.
Now through April
New Trip. This is the only trip still available before May.
Only two trips remain available.
- Kakadu Highlights No. 4: 7-20 May.
Two sections, either of which can be done on its own. We had to change section one for cultural reasons. The new notes, link above, went online on 9 February.
Section one is now a definite departure. Section two still needs at least two more bookings.
- Kimberley Highlights No. 1: 14 May - 10 June.
Five sections, any of which can be done on its own. The sections are very different giving you a great overview of the kinds of walks the Kimberley has to offer.
Save up to $644. All sections still need at least one more booking so we have extended our 15% advance purchase discount until one week after our next newsletter comes out. See our Kimberley Trips page for the complete price list
For another view of the trip, have a look at the Kimberley Highlights photo gallery that Richard Lukacz, one of our clients last year posted on his OneDrive.
Special offer — save an airfare. We can provide transport from Darwin to Kununurra at the beginning of the trip at no extra charge. We may be able to provide transport back at the end as well. Please ask if you are interested.

Visit one of Australia's most spectacular gorge systems in the Pilbara region of WA. Two sections, either of which can be done on its own.

There will be others.
- Sweden & Norway in autumn or winter.
- South Africa — one, two, or even three trips late in the year.
- Chile and/or Argentina late this year or early next.
We haven't done northern Chile for a long time so I might do that for a change. Or we might stick with Patagonia.
If you think you might be interested in any of the above, please send us an email and let us know your comments, suggestions questions or other thoughts.
Note. None of the discounts which apply to our Australian trips apply to any of our overseas trips.
