V.I.P. Off The Beaten Track Tour

V.I.P. Off The Beaten Track Tour

For the adventurous spirit, there are amazing experiences awaiting those willing to walk off-track. V.I.P. tour = just you, your people, and one of our guides.

Exclusive to Australian Nature Guides.



Are you up for a bit of adventure? Strap on your hiking boots and leave the track and crowds behind as you explore some of the Gorge's secret sites that few will ever get to see.


We can only offer this unique opportunity once per week, to just six lucky walkers, making it our most exclusive experience.


Available: April - September (only once per week).

Duration: 8 - 9 hours.

Distance: 15+ kilometres.

Terrain: The first and last section of this walk is on a formed track. The middle section (approximately 5-6 hours) is spent rock-hopping on uneven terrain, crossing the creek many times. Good balance is essential.  

Group size: Min 2 - Max 6 (Due to the sensitive nature of the locations visited on this tour, and restrictions imposed by our Commercial Activity Permit, a group size greater than 6 is not possible).

Includes: We'll boil the billy! Tea and coffee provided.

BYO: Hand sanitiser, lunch, water, snacks, hat, walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing & camera.

Recommended Equipment: Hiking poles are handy for extra stability on uneven terrain (of which there is a lot). Long trousers/gaiters and long sleeves will help reduce scratches, scrapes and cuts from rough plants and rocks.

Bookings: If you're wanting to book multiple tours online (e.g. an Off The Beaten Track Tour AND a Carnarvon Night Safari) be sure to add each product to your cart before completing the form and checking out. Once you have added your first tour to your cart, simply click the "Make another booking" button, which will appear at the top of the next page above the form.
