Overview

We are passionate about taking you off the beaten track, creating positive experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
We are committed to ensuring that our day trips, weekends or tours are unique, attainable, well researched, affordable and tailored for the enjoyment of small groups. Our adventures cater for people from many walks of life, age groups and motivations. We aim to give you the very best of what nature and the outdoors has to offer, leaving you with a smile from ear to ear and a sense of accomplishment.

We’ve had some wonderful walks at Wilsons Promontory, and we are going again because its AWESOME.

We would love to show you how amazing this walk is and have strict permit restrictions, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Our overnight walks are fully guided and this moderate grade walk will give you the opportunity to learn more, explore further and push that boundary. We love the outdoors and will create a fun and energetic atmosphere where you can feel comfortable. Plus our usual standard of high quality yummy food this will be your best overnight hike of the season.

Refuge Cove is one the gems of the Prom, with a 16km walk to get there though, this is definitely a walk to test those legs. We start down the centre track before turning east towards the sandy white beach of Waterloo Bay. Cross the little creek and continue up and over the harder section of Kersops Peak. Be rewarded by the awesomely hidden, turquoise waters of Refuge Cove as you make your windy way back down to sea level. Grab a spot to put up your tent amongst the gum trees and quickly get down to the water for a swim.

Day two will begin with some windy trails after leaving Refuge and you are soon rewarded once again by the mighty Sealers Cove beach. This is a truly spectacular beach to sit and have morning tea. Take off your shoes and hopefully nothing more to cross the tidal Sealers Creek, wander the beach in your barefeet and gaze to distant shorelines for this wonderful section of walking.
With your shoes back on, hit some very flat boardwalk before the ascent out of eastern part of the Prom and back over Windy Saddle. Grab a quick lunch before your final few kms of gravel track back to the start. What an epic walk!
