Nature Bound Australia owned and operated by Ros and John Thompson focuses on helping you discover the places that you would be unlikely to find on your own. Custom designed tours offer authentic experiences in the pristine environments of Australian National Parks and World Heritage listed reserves. Journeys are adventuruous and active with a comfortable edge.
Enjoy guided walks personally researched by the Thompson's with the special qualities of independent travel in mind. The trails are easy to moderate in grade. All walks are optional, providing a perfect window to a natural legacy of landscapes, geology, flora and fauna. If walking is not your favour on any day, then tours and destinations also promise a variety of relaxing leisure activities or simply "time out" with nature, in inspiring surrounds.
Nature-Bound Australia's experienced guides choose to visit but not invade the natural habitats and remote local communities featured in each journey. Tailored journeys incorporate small resorts and mountain cottages in character settings, and dining is at quaint eateries offering fine local cuisine.
Depending on your interests Nature-Bound Australia will design a journey to visit regions in and around Brisbane, Gold Coast Hinterland, Byron Bay & surrounds and throughout outback Queensland. Your adventure can include relaxed scenic travel between the national parks visited, along back roads and tracks unknown to mainstream tourism. Enjoy spontaneous insights into historic and contemporary Australian life and live the bush legends. There are occasional visits to National Trust properties, art galleries, boutique wineries and curious features, guaranteeing a balanced Australian experience.
