World Expeditions’ newest Australian AdventuresWorld Expeditions’ newest Australian AdventuresWorld Expeditions has launched its new Australia brochure and the emphasis is on exploration, with new adventures in previously unexplored parts of the country and on new ways to experience some old favourites with each itinerary underpinned by strong responsible travel practice.An epic 39 day Tasmanian traverse, two new cycle adventures – one on the stunning WA coast and one on Tasmania’s beautiful east coast, two new kayaking expeditions and a new walking tour in the Kimberley are the stand-out additions to the 2018 domestic program.The Great Tasmanian Traverse is a unique annual adventure which combines World Expeditions’ five most highly rated and popular trips over a five-week period. On this epic adventure, travellers trek, raft, fly and sail from the quiet, rural communities of the North to the wild and isolated South. The trip departs 17 Feb and costs $12,890 and it is possible to do all at once or in independent sections, completing the entire traverse over a number of years.The two new cycling itineraries will appeal to travellers who like to explore the country from handlebar level. The Munda Biddi Cycling Adventure opens a part of Western Australia known for its remote trekking opportunities and stunning scenery to cycling, while the East Coast Explorer is an opportunity to experience Tasmania’s beautiful Bay of Fires region and its surrounds.Kayakking allows an expedition style exploration that other forms of travel do not and the two new kayaking adventures open new wilderness areas to adventurous travellers. The Snowy River Wilderness Expedition is a 10 day rafting and kayaking expedition down the beautiful Snowy River in NSW’s high country and the Cassowary Coast Sea Kayaking in North Queensland is a 4 day paddle in a remote section of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.The other standout new trip is the Kimberley Walking Tour, a 13 day exploration of highlights of the spectacular Kimberley region. Like the longer established Kakadu Walking Adventure, the Kimberley tour is a camping-based trip based around a series of day walks.World Expeditions continues to expand its offering on the iconic Larapinta Trail, west of Alice Springs and, next season, will operate ten different itineraries on the trail.According to World Expeditions CEO, Sue Badyari, the broad range of itineraries is designed to make the experience accessible to walkers of all abilities and fitness levels.“There are three, six, 9 and 12 day itineraries on offer and clients can choose a fully guided walk, with access to our exclusive architect designed camps, hot showers and porter services,” Ms Badyari said. “Independent walkers can choose self-guided options, with wilderness camping, an emergency safety device, food drops, transfers and maps provided.”“There’s a “challenger” itinerary, designed to take in the most difficult and remote sections of the trail,” she said, “and the annual art-based trip remains.”World Expeditions runs regular free information nights in most capital cities.
