Emu Trekkers, established last year as Australia’s first 100% not for profit, adventure tourism operator, has launched a new two-day hike in the Blue Mountains. Supported by a grant from the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust, the new tour is a two-day guided hike in the UNESCO world-heritage Blue Mountains National Park.
Emu Trekkers CEO, Tristan Harley, said the organisation recognised a niche in the market to provide tourists with a guided, overnight camp in the wilderness. “We’ve already had more than 250 visitors join our day walks. Now we want to take away barriers like lack of equipment, experience or knowledge so that people can enjoy an extended experience in the Australian bush.”
