SWAG CAMPING TOUR
Our swag camping tour is an active adventure with basic facilities. It might be stating the obvious, but you do need to like camping, hiking and be able to put up with sometimes extreme weather conditions. We are sleeping in swags under the stars and whilst this adds to the experience, it’s normal to be a bit nervous about this. It’s only if absolutely necessary we pull out the tents (excessive rain).
 
CAMPING LOCATIONS
We stay in a range of campgrounds, bush camps and national parks. The facilities are generally quite minimal so on some tours, there might be a night with no showers or flushing toilets. This is outlined in each tour itinerary. Also get ready to truly disconnect, putting away your phone, as there is very limited coverage as we travel through some very remote regions of Australia!
 
WHAT IS A SWAG?
Swags are ‘Aussie Bed Rolls’ made from sturdy canvas with a mattress built into the swag. We also carry 3-person dome tents which are shared by 2 people but these are only pulled out if the weather requires it (rain). Please also provide your own pillow if you wish.
 
LEVEL OF FITNESS REQUIRED
To get the most out of our trips you need to be prepared for walks of between 3-9 km on some days. This may involve rough ground and perhaps getting wet. From October to March you may experience temperatures of over 35 degrees Celsius (and sometimes well into the 40s) so be prepared to endure extra physical stress due to the heat at these times, especially while on walks.
 
TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however, they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
