What are the risks?
While with AusJourney your safety and welfare is our primary concern, however you do participate at your own risk and there will be times without direct instructor line-of-sight supervision. You may find our Adventurous Journeys physically, mentally and emotionally challenging, with long days and a good night’s sleep not guaranteed. Hikes occur in all weather conditions unless deemed unsafe by AusJourney. Before undertaking the hike, participants will be briefed on the risks and how to manage them.
AusJourney has never had any major life changing injuries, however serious risks can never completely be eliminated. Some of the risks include; injury from falling trees/branches, animal bites, hypo/hyperthermia and road accidents. To reduce the likelihood of a serious incident we have a comprehensive and robust safety management system as outlined below.
