Your booking is subject to our standard terms and conditions listed below, including the assumption of risks inherent in any chosen activities, equipment and/or supplies.


Booking Confirmation and Payment

We will ask you to provide your credit card details in advance to cover this possibility.

We accept all forms of payment and have listed the options on our booking platform.


Our Cancellation Policy

Sometimes we must cancel a scheduled tour or accommodation booking because of conditions beyond our control (severe weather, impassable roads, bushfires). We reserve the right to cancel a booking without notice, and if we can’t find an alternative tour or booking to suit you, we will promptly refund your payment in full.  We will not be responsible for any consequential losses arising from a cancellation.

If you cancel a booking we will refund your payment after deducting an administration fee based on the following table:
