Heaphy Track hiking trip
The most memorable part of the track was coming down from the tussock highlands along the Heaphy River, emerging out of the forest and seeing the beaches of The Tasman Sea. (more)Allan Justus
A great experience particularly with the tour operator passing on so much information about the geography, flora, fauna and history. (more)Peter Ladd
Seeing the rare Blue Duck close up in it's natural environment was very special. I also loved being in the company of people from around the World who were passionate about the environment. (more)Wendy Grace
From NZ $1749 excluding flights
Uluru and the Olgas tour in Australia
Memorable parts? The tour of Kata Tjuta - Ben the guide's knowledge and experience was simply wonderful. I've never met someone who could talk with such knowledge about geology, widlife, country lore. Tips? Camping was a bit basic but a wonderful experience - cooking over an open fire under a clear unpolluted night sky was simply ethereal. Local benefits? Yes. (more)Farida Parkyn
From US $630 - US $685 excluding flights
Bibbulmun Track walking vacation in Western Australia
Memorable parts? Our guide, Dave, was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the the countrside - birds, plants, weather, history - he helped us enjoy the spectacular lanscape. Tips? Just come with your eyes and mind open. Local benefits? Yes - this was an integral part of the operator's ethos. Overall rating? Excellent - just what we were looking for. (more)Kathy Hammond
From AU $1995 excluding flights
Kangaroo Island luxury lodge, Australia
Memorable parts? Walking into the lodge is like walking into the something from a James Bond set - and I mean that in the best possible way! The views from the main room pretty much are a show stopper - vast circular glass windows show off wilderness on every side. In front the majestic Southern Ocean, behind just wild bush as far as the eye can see... The rooms are very private, and look our directly onto the Ocean - we watched a big lightning storm come in as if we were all alone in... (more)Justin Francis
From AU $990 - AU $1800 per person per night
Mission Beach backpackers accommodation
Most memorable was just sitting on the balcony in the sunshine with a coffee and a book and looking across the Coral Sea...and waking up to the sounds of the forest...and seeing several cassowary... and eating in the beautiful restaurant. (more)Nigel Evers
The most memorable part of my vacation was a day trip snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef - so beautiful and so addictive - I just wanted to keep searching for different corals and fish. (more)Imogen Howlett
We loved every minute of our stay! Our rainforest cabin was truly beautiful with polished wood floors, a comfy bed and best of all a stunning view onto some near pristine rainforest... This is ecotourism at its best. (more)Claire Morgan
From AU $35 - AU $165 per double room per night
Christchurch self catering cottage, New Zealand
Memorable parts? finding little deserted spots - less-visited beaches; an out-of-the-way river. And all the outdoors activities New Zealand offers. Tips? I can't really think of any 'warning' type tips - everything was made very easy and pleasant for us by the hosts, who were efficient and helpful and offered lots of good suggestions for activities. So I guess I'd suggest asking local people for the best things to do. Oh, and use the i-sites - tourist info sites in all cities and... (more)Natalie Kirschstein
From NZ $90 - NZ $95 per double room per night
Small group tour of Kimberley, Western Australia
Memorable parts? Camping under the stars in Purnalulu National Park under the most amazing sky I have ever seen and being woken by dingoes howling and calling to each other in early morning. The wildflowers were everywhere. It was an amazing time to travel. Tips? Make sure you are fit enough to do all the walks so you can get the most out of it. Some require a good level of fitness and scrambling over rocks and boulders. Take good walking boots/shoes. Be prepared to rise early 5.00am.... (more)Wendy Muller
From AU $2795 excluding flights
Great Ocean Walk vacation in Victoria, Australia
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers
From AU $2595 - AU $2795 excluding flights
New Zealand hiking vacation
Memorable parts? The scenery, the culture, the tour leader Mayuko was the best leader ever. Very friendly, helpful, warm, informative she made the vacation. Tips? Travel light there is a lot of moving around between train stations and bus stations etc. Food is limiting enough if you don't eat meat/fish. Be prepared to eat a lot of rice and noodles Local benefits? All of the above yes Overall rating? Very good. More traveling on buses and trains than I had... (more)Roisin Courtney
From US $7875 excluding flights
Tasmania West coast tour
I am finally getting around to thinking about sending you some feedback on our trip. In general terms, we book tours in order to access places we wouldn’t get to ourselves and so that we get loads of enriching information about the places. I guess we were disappointed on both points. I think the only place we would have struggled to get to on the trip was Corinna and the lake camp on the last night. We could have got to the other places easily. Mick was especially disappointed that the only... (more)Lorrie Marchington
