Experience Australia

Known for the wild lands and pristine coasts, our Australia programs feature awesome outdoor activities like surfing, scuba diving, and snorkeling. The very first Rustic Pathways programs were run in the Outback back in 1983. Since then, Australia has remained at the heart of our operations and we've expanded to offer eight incredible, diverse programs.
