The Hike Collective runs relaxed guided hiking tours around the island, suitable for beginners to hiking enthusiasts.

Get ready to traverse unique landscapes along the Wadjemup Bidi: a series of walk trails on the island. These trails take you across spectacular coastal headlands, past stunning inland lakes and towards natural and man-made attractions.

Stand in the places where history was made. Walk into the wilderness where native flora is regenerating. Look up at giant energy transformers that sustainably power the island.
