Great Australian Walkabout – 18 days
For the first time World Expeditions offers a unique itinerary that takes in some of Australia’s most iconic highlights. Starting in Sydney and concluding at Uluru (Ayers Rock), the Great Australian Walkabout is a new trip that packs in memorable experiences such as the Blue Mountains, the Great Ocean Walk, the Ghan Railway and the Larapinta Trail, where you will experience World Expeditions’ exclusive, brand new design-led, semi-permanent campsites.

Tasmania: Bay of Fires Walk – 4 days
Enjoy the solitude and comfort of your exclusive accommodation in the Forester Beach camp and the luxurious award-winning Bay of Fires Lodge, while dining on scrumptious meals created from fresh Tasmanian produce. Along the edge of Mount William National Park, the four-day trip features a superb series of short walks through the remote, awe-inspiring landscape on Tasmania’s pristine East Coast, from deserted beaches and coves to pristine woodlands.
· Departs daily until 1 May, from £1,320 per person
Classic Larapinta Trek – 6 days
This classic trek harbours many aboriginal sacred sites as you descend from high ridgelines into narrow canyons. Staying at exclusive, semi-permanent campsites, in splendid isolation, this is by far the most comfortable – and stylish – way to do the Larapinta Trek. In a climate known for its temperature extremes, this is the most sustainable accommodation option for anyone wishing to trek in the outback, combining a back-to-nature experience without forgoing the modern comforts.

Great Ocean Walk – 7 days
The winding curves of Victoria’s famous Great Ocean Road boast some of Australia’s most spectacular coastal scenery. Staying at a stunning eco-lodge and enjoying special chef prepared meals, think only of crashing waves, rainforest canopies, wonderful beaches and soaring ocean views. Starting in Apollo Bay, the trip finishes six days later at an Australian icon, the world famous Twelve Apostles.
· Departs next on 2 February, from £1,860 per person
NEW FOR 2014 Kakadu Walking Adventure – 6 days
