On a World Expeditions adventure, you can expect great value, high quality, and real adventure travel experiences on all seven continents.

Our story began in 1975, when the mountains of Nepal inspired our first trek.  Since then, we've pioneered many adventure travel firsts, all driven by our goal to provide active and adventurous travellers with BIG adventures that leave a small footprint on the people and places we visit. In Australia and New Zealand World Expeditions have 4 divisions - Australian Walking Holidays, Tasmanian Expeditions, the Blue Mountains Adventure Company and Adventure South. Our divisions operate all over the region and are always seeking passionate and enthusiastic guides to join our team.
