Walking Tours in Australia


Our philosophy is simple - to get out of the cities and into the countryside where you can discover the charm and beauty of the Victorian region such as the Grampians, Otway National Park, the 12 Apostles and Wilson's Promontory National Park. Walking with a small, like minded group is the best way to explore them. It is important to have time to "smell the roses", not to rush through but to soak up the atmosphere. We are great believers that the journey is what matters, not the destination! All our holidays in Australia are guided - we are not there to overload you with facts and figures but discreetly share with you the wonderful places we have discovered during our "journey".

About regional food and wine in Australia

Traditionally, Australian food has its roots in the English meat-and-two-veg vein. But immigration and the range of superb, locally produced fresh ingredients have had a profound effect on mainstream Australian food. A decade or so ago, it led to the emergence of "Modern Australian" cuisine, a fusion of tastes from around the world – particularly Asia and the Mediterranean. It still forms the central taste of Aussie menus, so even the average pub bistro is likely to serve good curries, dolmades and fish with Asian salad alongside steak and prawns, even if more high-end places follow global culinary trends. At its best the result has a lot in common with Californian cooking styles where the watchwords are healthy, eclectic and, above all, fresh.

Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Sémillon and Riesling are the principal grape varieties, and winemakers in recent years have moved on away from a weakness for big, powerful wines which packed a punch in terms of fruit and jams as much as alcohol levels. Aussie wines today tend to be more subtle affairs: spicy or silky, mouth-filling or aromatic reds; fresh crisp whites packed with citrus or tropical fruits that are tailormade for quaffing with the barbie; and vibrant summery rosés.
