Getaway Trekking and Adventures

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

In simple terms, we run treks.

However, what we really do is use the outdoors as a conduit to reach people. To take them out of their daily lives, provide a digital and responsibility detox, allowing them to stop and breathe, and enjoy the solace connecting with nature brings.

It’s one foot in front of the other, and with such simplicity of purpose, much of the clutter in our heads simply vanishes, leaving space for a clarity we don’t often find.

We tell stories that are educational and often inspirational. We provide opportunity for conversation and for silence, for learning and for reflection.

Take time out to enjoy a hike from Stoney Creek to Kuranda, via beautiful Barron Falls.

Starting early to avoid the heat, we hike through beautiful rainforest, protected from the sun by a thick canopy of trees. At various points, we are rewarded with beautiful views over Cairns, Trinity Inlet, the Northern Beaches and, of course, Barron Falls.

Arriving at the Falls, we have the opportunity to make our way along the walkway build high under forest canopy – we will feel like we are walking in the trees. Interpretative signs provide fascinating information about the nature and culture of this area, and of course the views are spectacular.

We continue our walk into Kuranda for a lovely lunch and some cold drinks, before spending some time enjoying the ambience this quaint little village offers. Markets, art galleries providing some sublime indigenous art and a butterfly sanctuary – it’s all there!

Our return to Cairns is on the Kuranda Scenic Railway – Gold Class of course! We will enjoy local produce and drinks during our 1 hour 45 minute journey, the perfect way to end our day.

Note: This is challenging and a good level of fitness is required.

The elevation, rainfall and soil types in the Atherton Tablelands have produced an incredibly diverse and beautiful region. There is a prolific diversity in natural flora and fauna, ranging from tropical highland rainforests to dry tropical savannah.

In addition, historic volcanic activity, water, soils and diverse growing conditions have supported the development of a wide range of agricultural and horticultural cropping operations. The region’s farmers and support services represent, in most cases, the best international practice in farming in a tropical environment.

They combine a fabulously invigorating trek and pilates program with a full day of sampling the culinary delights to be found here. A wonderful opportunity to go outsize your comfort zone and take on a challenge, escape day to day life, reconnect with nature and enjoy all the Tablelands has to offer.
